& Noble

Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting
humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her
parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something
she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent
away.

When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force,
Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can
squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find
"her" demon. To take back what was stolen.

Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He
knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.

Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because
Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons
have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.

Exclusive Excerpt!
 “Jealousy is cute on
you, Pen.”

“Don't call me that,” I snap, pushing my coffee away from
me. “And I'm not jealous.”

He leans back on the chair. "Sure. And I don’t think
you’re adorable." I jerk my eyes up. He’s smiling. Screw this—this is so
frustrating. I tap my foot under the table.

"We're stating the facts, right?" he says.

“Right,” I say.

I don’t have time for this. And what is wrong with this
coffee? I feel like I swallowed a fire and it’s all just burning at my stomach.

“You look sick again,” he says.

The poorly—or perfectly—timed waitress comes back with
Carter's coffee and a whole tray of drinks. Carter, obviously, flirts again. I
don’t know if he’s doing it to get a reaction out of me, but I’m not going to
give him one. I watch him and say nothing, but the whole time it feels darker
inside my head and my stomach whirs. It’s more empty, and more full, and
unsettled at once. The waitress turns to leave a when it happens.

The waitress coughs, as if she suddenly can’t breathe, and
trips. She flies across the air. The tray spills all over a table of four. I
gasp, horrified. Another waitress grabs her by the waist, trying to give her the
Heimlich. The waitress coughs out the gum. She’s crying hysterically,
apologizing to the customers dripping with water.

The weirdest part? As soon it happens, all the fury that was
building up inside of me disappears. It’s calm again, normal. The change is so
sudden that my fingernails dig into the table. All I can hear is the waitress’s
cry. 

"I don't know what happened," she sobs over and
over again. I close my eyes. Everything inside me is completely still. No
storm, no clawing, no emptiness or fullness. In fact, I’m suddenly starving.
Carter's looking at me when I open my eyes. There's
something unsettling in his gaze, something suspicious.

“I gotta go,” I say. He starts to say something. I don't
stay long enough to find out what it is.
Somehow I just did magic.


About Danielle:
Danielle Ellison is from a small town in West Virginia. She
spent her childhood pretending to fly and talking to imaginary friends. When
she grew up, she finally flew away (in an airplane) and started traveling the
world. She hasn’t stopped yet, but someday she may decide to settle in one
place. Her real life friends would definitely like that; they would probably
also like if she stopped talking to her characters out loud.

SALT comes out in August 2013, and then it's sequel. In October 2014, FOLLOW ME
THROUGH DARKNESS (book one of the BOUNDLESS Trilogy) comes out. She's got a
busy few years!

I like this cover! I know it's a frequently-used trope, but there is something about a girl with hair in front of her face that is so mysterious and alluring. Plus the color scheme is gorgeous; all those shades of purple look stunning against the bright white. Thanks for sharing!

Mollie Leigh said...

I totally agree! That color scheme is what got me, I've never seen a YA book cover like that. The closest I can think of is Crewel or even The Iron Daughter. I'm also glad it wasn't another girl in a dress; I love those but sometimes I need a break from them. :) Thanks for stopping by! :D

Happy reading!
