Cover Reveal: Beyond by Mary Ting + Teaser

Hi! I'm so excited today for this post, because Mary Ting is so special to me, she's an amazing person and a friend, and best of all, she's one of my favorite authors. I've read Crossroads few times (5 stars) and Between (5 stars) and I love them! Now, I can't wait for the third book because the end of Between was... heartbreaking! What a cliffhanger!!!
Today you can see the cover reveal of Beyond, the blurb of the book and a special teaser!
Tell us in the comments, do you like the cover? Have you read the Crossroads and Between? And are you excited for Beyond?

Title: Beyond (Crossroads Saga #3)
Author: Mary Ting
Expected release day: September 12th 2012

Torn between the past she can't remember and a future she isn’t ready for, Claudia feels at a loss. With unanswered questions, she is certain there is more to her past than just being a venator. Finding the missing pieces in her life won’t be easy because duty calls. When mysterious dark shadows get released, an apocalypse sets in motion. The venators and the alkins must work together once again. Knowing Claudia would be the key to destroying the demons that were released, a familiar stranger appears to protect her. Drawn to the beautiful angel, Claudia finds she must unravel the mysteries of her past in order to help save the world. Who is the angel assisting her and why does she feel a strong connection to him? Time is running out. Will she discover all the secrets before it’s too late?

A teaser:

Claudia was unable to answer, afraid to give him the wrong answer. “I…I…like to think about this?”
Callum laughed out loud, “Think? We don’t have time for you to think. If you can’t make up your mind, perhaps I can persuade you with a gift?”
“A gift? I don’t want anything from you. I mean…thank you, but it’s not necessary.”
Callum turned her around and showed Claudia her gift.
Claudia gasped in shock and her face turned white, but quickly calmed down and tried to pretend she didn’t care.
Callum paced over toward her gift. Claudia could do nothing at this point, but hope he doesn’t do anything crazy. Patty had her ankles and wrist bound and mouth gagged.  She lay with her legs tucked under, in an infant position. “Don’t you want your friend back?”
“I don’t know what you mean? I have no idea who she is?” Claudia’s tone was cold. “Why would you bring a complete stranger here and think it would be a great gift. What kind of gift is that?” Her tone was sassy and rude. “If you’re going to convince me to join you, you should get a better gift. Take her back home and let’s talk about what I really want, what’s really worth my time.”
Before Claudia finished her words, Callum was already down to Patty’s level. He pulled Patty’s head back and held a dagger on her neck. “If she is not to your liking, then I’ll just kill her. What’s another human? They’ll all die soon anyway.” The dagger contacts her neck.
“Wait!” Claudia yells. “No…let her be. I’ve changed my mind. Don’t kill her. I’ll take her. She’ll make a great gift.”
With a swift fast motion, Callum stood behind Claudia, yanked her head back from the grip of her hair. “You think I’m a fool? Don’t play me. You’ve not lived long enough to know what I know and do the things I can.”

I love the new covers of the trilogy. Here they are.
