Silver Eve (Guardians of Tarnec #2)
by Sandra Waugh.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy.
Publication: September 22nd 2015 by Random House Books for Young Readers.
A Healer without home or purpose, seventeen-year-old Evie Carew has found the perfect place to disappear: Rood Marsh. She can easily fade into its vast wilderness of towering reeds; leave behind the growing violence that is claiming her innocent world. Leave behind the tragedy that broke her heart and sent her far from her grandmother, cousin Lark and all she once loved.

But Evie is not alone in the marsh. A seer, a Rider, and Breeders of Chaos all hunt her—for though opposed in objective, her seekers share knowledge she does not: Evie is one of the four Guardians of Tarnec, one who can help save the world from the coming destruction if she can reclaim the stolen amulet of Death. But whether she meets true love or a brutal end on such a journey is a matter of who finds her first.


He called to me: “If you stop one terror, the Breeders will use another, and another, until they have you.” I ignored him and walked away.
Laurent called again, warning, and I walked faster, disturbed more by the sound of his voice than the threats he described. It was like a balm, his voice.
And then he was coming after me, feet drumming the earth, so I said fiercely without turning: “Know that if you force your companionship, I will escape. Just as I know how to heal, I know as well how to hurt.”
Maybe he already knew that. Laurent slowed but kept pace behind me, silent. Then he said simply, “I cannot force, it is a choice. Do you insist on being alone?”
“I do.”
“Then”—his hand was on my arm, pulling me around to face him—“there is something I will have before you go.”
The Rider was too close; those clear blue eyes depths to swim in. He would kiss me, I thought crazily; his lashes cast down as he looked at my mouth, then flicked back up to catch my gaze again. His hand slid up my arm, tugged the narrow strap of the undershift, and slipped it from my shoulder. The cloak and frock fell from my slackening grip. He leaned forward, touching his forehead to mine, his breath hitching ever so slightly, like a dusting of sandalwood against my skin. I had no breath, no speech. I melted like wax in his hands.
Laurent’s brows lifted at my willingness. I knew it too—somewhere—that it was absurd, I was absurd. Except I wasn’t thinking; I was reaching to meet his mouth. For a blistering moment his lips nearly touched mine, but then the Rider pulled back, gaze traveling down to my neck and along my arm to where his fingers held. He gripped my shoulder, not gently, and drew it toward him, putting his other hand to my back—
I screamed as a lightning flash of yearning exploded inside, dropped to my knees under its weight. Laurent had stepped back, shaken. We stared dumbly at one another. But he recovered himself first and straightened, very sober and formal, and maybe angry.
“Now, my lady, if you wish to travel alone, at least you are not exposed.” And he turned away and strode back to where his horse patiently waited.

Sandra grew up in an old house full of crowded bookshelves, in walking distance of an old library that allowed her to drag home a sack of six books at a time. It goes without saying, then, that she fell in love with the old house in Litchfield County, CT, because of its many bookshelves, and she lives there now with her husband, two sons, and a dog who snores. Loudly.

LARK RISING is her first novel and the first in the GUARDIANS OF TARNEC series. SILVER EVE follows in 2015.
