Overview

International bestselling author Andrea Cremer's sequel to Rift, a Nightshade novel.

Everything Conatus stands for is at risk. Hoping to gather enough resistance to save their order, Ember and Barrow attempt a desperate escape. But fate offers little mercy. When their mission is exposed, the couple faces relentless pursuit by the supernatural horrors that act on the commands of Eira’s ally: the mysterious Bosque Mar. A shocking revelation forces Ember out of hiding, sending her back into the heart of dark magic at Tearmunn keep, where she must convince her old friend Alistair of her love or face dire consequences.
Ember’s deception offers the only change for the resistance to succeed, but what she discovers in the shadows beneath the keep will shatter her world and bring about the Witches’ War.

"Popular paranormal motifs abound: the medieval setting, the looming demonic threat, the portal to the netherworld, battles and dark, secret catacombs, not to mention the beginnings of the werewolves. Interesting characters populate the pages, all designed to keep fans glued to the book."—Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Liz Sundermann
Andrea Cremer's latest novel picks up immediately after Rift (Philomel, 2012/Voya October 2012) left off. The Order of Conatus is in disarray, and Ember and the rebels have fled to Europe to try to find allies. Lady Eira has taken full power with the aid of the supernatural Lord Bosque. She has begun a reign of terror—killing all those who hesitate to join her ranks. Things seem hopeless for the rebels until Ember's sister seeks asylum at Tearmun after being found to be pregnant on her wedding night. Lady Eira and Bosque welcome her for political reasons, which gives Ember an idea for a very dangerous plan. She will return, alone, to the fort claiming concern for her sister, love for the disturbingly ever-more-deluded Alistair, and loyalty to Lady Eira until the time is right for a coup. Although the action is still riveting, and the mystery of what evil Alistair is concocting in the catacombs will keep fans reading, this is a disappointing sequel. Much of what made Rift so compelling was Ember's unwillingness to compromise her ideals. In this book, however, she waffles frequently and makes silly mistakes that are entirely out of character. Additionally, the romance was much more taught in the previous work. Here it is introduced by a gratuitous sex scene and then all but abandoned. Cremer fans will want to read this book to find out what happens, but it may leave many uninterested in finishing the series. Reviewer: Liz Sundermann
Kirkus Reviews
This second prequel to the popular Nightshade werewolf series keeps the action moving. Picking up right where the last book left off, this installment alternately follows heroine Ember and her lover, Barrow, and her longtime friend turned enemy, Alistair. Bosque Mar, the demon that will plague the Nightshade trilogy, has gained control of the society of Conatus, originally formed to fight demons of his ilk. Ember, Barrow and friends manage to escape to France and a sympathetic Conatus member who aids them, but Ember decides to return to Scotland to spy on Conatus from the inside. Alistair, fully under the influence of Bosque Mar, remains in unrequited love with Ember, but now he finds his own purpose: making the first werewolves. The main Nightshade trilogy emphasized individual freedom as a recurrent theme; that theme seems less explicit here, except in the defiance of the rebels and in Ember's desire to be a warrior who eschews feminine clothing. Popular paranormal motifs abound: the medieval setting, the looming demonic threat, the portal to the netherworld, battles and dark, secret catacombs, not to mention the beginnings of the werewolves. Interesting characters populate the pages, all designed to keep fans glued to the book. One wonders if a third prequel can be made to fit. If not, this one sets up the popular trilogy quite well. Still exciting. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)

    This book is for you if you like a book that will keep you up the entire night. Andrea Cremer does not disapoint.

    If you have read the Nightshade Trilogy this is a really good sequel to the prequel of Nightshade. It has some action, but even though the action in this is few it still makes for a very complicated storyline. Everything seems to fall into place like it should and no one in the book deviates from their character set up. All in all it is a great book.
