Teaser Tuesday ~ Scintillate by Tracy Clark (The Light Key Trilogy #1)

I've had the great privilege of  receiving an e-galley of this upcoming book, which is due to be out on February 4th aka pretty damn soon ^^ So I thought I'd tease y'all with a little hot sneak peak into the book.

Truth be told, I only received this yesterday so I haven't read it--thus this teaser was a pleasant surprise for me as well, making my apprehensions disappear.

Apprehensions, you say? What apprehensions? I'm glad you asked, mates. My problems are with the cover and the blurb:

"A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.

Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.

As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.

There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her newfound powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.

Scintillate is the first book in this lush and exciting new trilogy, full of romance, adventure and metaphysical mystery."

The cover isn't toooo impressive [the key and background create a beautiful affect but all the attention goes the the hand, which is standing out too much in my opinion] and the blurb spells love-triangle and a meh-plot. BUT. Yes, there is a big BUTT--I mean BUT. This teaser is too exciting to pass up the book. What I'd done was randomly stop on my e-readers' book scroll, ending up on this very lucky page, that has completely changed my initial view of the book. Enjoy the treat dearies. [BTW, this is an ARC so the quote I'm providing is not necessarily the final version--keep that in mind]
