Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
The two books I'm currently reading are on my Kindle, and I'm too lazy to be flipping back and forth between that, so I just pulled out Hex Hall, which I have NOT started yet. (No spoilers!)
"Hold up," I said, raising a hand. "Betrothed?"
He looked confused. "Yeah. All witches are betrothed to an available warlock on their thirteenth birthday. A year after they come into their powers."
He frowned. "Are you okay?" he asked. I'm sure I was making a pretty strange face. At thirteen I was thinking about allowing a boy's tongue into my mouth. Getting engaged would've been pretty far beyond me.
His face lowered, and my heart stopped. "Sophie-"
But before he could finish, a scream pierced the air.
The music stopped abruptly. Nearly everyone turned to see Elodie rushing back into the ballroom, a green silk robe flapping around her pale legs, and a look of horror on her face.
"It's Anna!" she was screaming. "It's happened again! I... Oh god, I think she's dead."
