Here's My #84th Teaser Tuesday From THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN

The Eighth Guardian
Meredith McCardle 
Genres: YA, Time Travel
Published: May 6th, 2014

Amanda Obermann. Code name Iris.

It’s Testing Day. The day that comes without warning, the day when all juniors and seniors at The Peel Academy undergo a series of intense physical and psychological tests to see if they’re ready to graduate and become government operatives. Amanda and her boyfriend Abe are top students, and they’ve just endured thirty-six hours of testing. But they’re juniors and don’t expect to graduate. That’ll happen next year, when they plan to join the CIA—together.

But when the graduates are announced, the results are shocking. Amanda has been chosen—the first junior in decades. And she receives the opportunity of a lifetime: to join a secret government organization called the Annum Guard and travel through time to change the course of history. But in order to become the Eighth Guardian in this exclusive group, Amanda must say good-bye to everything—her name, her family, and even Abe—forever.

Who is really behind the Annum Guard? And can she trust them with her life?

"Are you telling me that a necklace gives human  beings the ability to travel back in time?"

Alpha nods.

"And you expect me to believe that?"

"I do. But not just any human beings, Iris, only those who have been chosen. And you have been chosen."

Before I can make a move, we're surrounded.

Click! Click! Click! Click! Click! Click! 

Six gun barrels being locked. Not tasers. Not paintball guns. Real guns.

"Oh, what, you're going to shoot us?" Yellow screams as she throws her hands in the air. "You're all being lied to! Every one of you!"

So, What'cha think of my Teaser Tuesday Of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN?

I grew up in South Florida dreaming up stories in my head and writing down the good ones. I attended the University of Florida and received degrees in both magazine journalism and theatre. In a moment of sheer practicality my senior year of college, I realized that journalism wasn’t my passion and that theatre was nothing more than a hobby, and I went to law school. After graduating from Boston University School of Law, I spent seven years working as a commercial litigator by day and toiling away as a writer by night. Following the birth of my first daughter in late 2009, I left the law behind to focus on my writing full-time.

I live in South Florida with my amazingly supportive husband, my two lovely young daughters and my hyperactive wheaten terrier.

Look out for my review of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN coming soon!
