Here's My #100th Teaser Tuesday From CRIMSON BOUND!

Crimson Bound

Review: Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

May 5th 2015
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Paranormal

When Rachelle was fifteen she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless— straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat.

Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in an effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most—Rachelle forces Armand to help her find the legendary sword that might save their world. As the two become unexpected allies, they uncover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic, and a love that may be their undoing. In a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night?

Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.

(This is a standalone novel, not part of the Cruel Beauty Universe.)

"What did your aunt tell you?" he asked.

A forestborn puts a mark on a human," she said. "The human must kill somebody in three days or die. If he kills somebody, he becomes bloodbound, which means the power of the Forest is growing in him, until finally he gives up the last of his human heart and  becomes a forestborn.

~ CHAPTER 2 ~ PAGE 33 ~
She was a bloodbound and therefore a murderer; like Rachelle, she deserved to die.

She was helpless and in pain. Like Aunt Léonie.

The woman's hands dropped from her ears. Her lips curled back, and a little whining snarl escaped between her teeth.

She isn't human, thought Rachelle. She isn't human anymore.

The woman sprang...

Do you have a Teaser Tuesday?

  1. I enjoyed this one when I read the ARC a while ago. I hope you like it too. My YA teaser this week comes from The Cage by Megan Shepherd. Happy reading!

  2. Swords and magic and deadly creatures -- sounds exciting!
    My Tuesday post features Nobody’s Cuter Than You.

  3. Oh wow, those two teasers are amazing! It sounds like there's quite some world-building here and the fact that the author studied Medieval English like me is a bonus. I do love the fact that the cover is largely green despite the title having 'Crimson' in it! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week and that I see you at ABEA!

  4. Great teasers! I feel bad for those humans that are marked by forestborns. It's like they have no choice in the matter at all. Such a cruel fate.
    Here's my TT.
