Teaser Tuesday (3): Catalyst by Marc Johnson

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I received this eBook last week from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Title: Catalyst

Author: Marc Johnson

Series: The Passage of Hellsfire #1 (of 6)

Pages: 195

Teaser: “[…] He’ll help us.”   
“What if he won’t?”   
“Then all is lost.”

Description: For centuries, the kingdom of Alexandria has protected Northern Shala from the monstrous creatures lurking in the Wastelands. Now, a dark force threatens that fragile peace.

Far from home, Alexandria’s princess is abducted. When a young villager named Hellsfire stumbles upon her and her captors, he rushes in to rescue her, alone and unarmed. His fear and fury unleash an uncontrollable magical force that grants him the power to save the princess—and change the world.

Hellsfire has never craved nor dreamed of power. But such magic as he now possesses has not been seen in Northern Shala for a thousand years, since the devastation of the War of the Wizards and the creation of the Wastelands.

Now Hellsfire must leave all he’s ever known, and make a dangerous journey to learn to master this wild, ferocious power—power he knows he is not ready to wield. More difficult still, he needs to master his emotions. If he can’t, the power will consume him, Alexandria will fall, and darkness will eclipse the land, destroying everyone he loves.

In the dead of cold, the spark shall burn...

Purchase Catalyst for $4.99 from Smashwords or Barnes & Noble

So that’s the teaser this week!  I’ll be posting my review for this book on Sunday (hopefully), it may be Monday again this week because I’m moving back up to college this weekend so it’ll be a little hectic trying to get set up for the semester (and deal with admissions to iron out some issues I'm having with them).
