I've read Nightshade, though it wasn't really my favorite book. It was good, but not my favorite. But Andrea Cremer is starting a prequel to the NightShade Trilogy which is called "Rift". In this book, it will tell how the Searchers and Keepers came into being and how the gateway between the earth and the nether was first opened, as Cremer says. Cremer also says "Readers who paid close attention to the history revealed in 'Wolfsbane' will recognize quite a few names and events."
On the cover is Ember, a tenacious teenager who joins the Knights in order to repay her father's debt. And the thing she's holding in her hand? Yup, Andrea explains it:
"Ember wields a pair of circular blades that are a variation of ancient Chinese weapons called wind and fire wheels. Since her weapons are unique we talked a lot to make sure the style and proportions were correct."
"Rift" hits bookstores on August 7th, 2012.
