Two more days till I, Ruin‘s release on August 16th (barring unforeseen circumstances, in which case it will at least be available for pre-order then)! I’m uber-nervous about it (not to mention it’s my birthday so this is my present to myself). In any case, I hope you enjoyed today’s teaser and (super-short) excerpt 🙂

They left us writhing on our classroom floor, no breath, no scream, until feathers of vivid hues unfolded from our shoulders and whispered over our skin.

Now I’m on the run with Lunar Adurian, the smirky guy who always watched me from scarred eyes, and I’m falling too hard. I need to keep it together, to wage an underground war against the Coalition, but inside I’m coming apart.
My father wants me to abandon my best friend. Lunar challenges my every step and questions my every act. I start making mistakes, and I’m struggling to hold everything in place: to hold my course, my beliefs, to hold myself—
To hold anything at all when my hands are slippery with blood.
