Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along!

I just started Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch yesterday. It is a sci-fi/fantasy novel with a striking cover. Holly Black, who I’ve previously excerpted, also has a Magisterium book/series, so don’t mix them up! My teaser:

He hadn’t always been like this; her father had been a promising builder once—had done a lot of the work that led to the invention of the sleek glass tablet in Glenn’s hand—and was supposed to have gone on to do big things, but, like everything else, that went away one night ten years ago. Since then he’d produced nothing, choosing instead to chase ideas down the strange dark alleys that only he could see.

On one side of the Rift is a technological paradise without famine or want. On the other side is a mystery.

Sixteen-year-old Glenn Morgan has lived next to the Rift her entire life and has no idea of what might be on the other side of it. Glenn’s only friend, Kevin, insists the fence holds back a world of monsters and witchcraft, but magic isn’t for Glenn. She has enough problems with reality: Glenn’s mother disappeared when she was six, and soon after, she lost her scientist father to his all-consuming work on the mysterious Project. Glenn buries herself in her studies and dreams about the day she can escape. But when her father’s work leads to his arrest, he gives Glenn a simple metal bracelet that will send Glenn and Kevin on the run—with only one place to go.


  1. Sounds like you’ve been busy! Congratulations on the upcoming release of Intersexion, and good luck on completing Proxy.
    My Tuesday post features THE ALL-GIRL FILLING STATION’S LAST REUNION by Fannie Flagg.

  2. Well, the teaser makes me want to know more.

  3. Kathy Martin says:

    I haven’t heard of this book before. It does sound good. My YA teaser comes from Where You’ll Find Me by Natasha Friend. Happy reading!

  4. This looks like one I could sink my teeth into! I read a lot of scifi/fantasy. Thanks for sharing! My teaser is from the same genre and can be found at http://abookaddictsview.blogspot.com/2016/03/teaser-tuesday.html
