Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
At long last I’ve finally started reading A Conjuring of Light by Victoria Schwab so I absolutely had to use it for my teaser this week. I love Schwab’s writing so I have been merrily highlighting my way through the whole book.
Note, this is the third book in the Shades of Magic series so while the teaser is spoiler free the blurb has spoilers for earlier books and is best avoided if you haven’t read them yet.

Witness the fate of beloved heroes – and enemies.

WHO WILL CRUMBLE?
Kell – once assumed to be the last surviving Antari – begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive?
WHO WILL RISE?
Lila Bard, once a commonplace – but never common – thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.
WHO WILL TAKE CONTROL?
And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.
