Vanish Teaser Tour: Team Will! + Annotated ARC Giveaway!

Okay, so I know all week long, an ongoing excerpt from Sophie Jordan's Vanish has been making you guys all drool. And on Thursday, Alex over at Electrifying Reviews told you why Cassian is a better pairing for Jacinda. But today? I'm telling you why Will is the hottie du jour and the one you should be salivating over. Or, you know, you could stick with Cassian and leave Will for me and only me. I wouldn't necessarily complain.

So I have a lot for you guys today, from my Team Will argument to a chance to enter to win a TOTALLY marked up, annotated ARC of Vanish. I have no idea what Sophie's writing in it, but she's telling you her comments and maybe even a secret or two. Yeah. I'm jealous of who wins this.

Now let's get this kicked off! I bring you guys: Team Will All the Way

While I can appreciate Cassian, and admit that he has his moments of hotness, it’s Will that my heart lies with… and who I think makes a better pairing for Jacinda. In an environment where Jacinda’s draki side was being wasted away, a dry place that made even her skin uncomfortable, Will reignited the part of herself that she seems to value the most. And face it, when a guy can literally make you steam, he gets major points in his favor.

But Will’s hot looks… angsty tormented side… and gentle ways aside, he and Jacinda connect in a way that she doesn’t connect with Cassian. With Cassian, she has to worry about being some huge celebrity practically when it comes to the pride. While I don't doubt that Cassian views her with far more emotion and sensitivity than the rest of the pride, Will just views her as… well, pretty much as someone to love and take care of.

And if that’s not enough, then there’s the kissing. Holy hormones batman, these two have some steamy kisses, and not just because Jacinda’s wings have a tendency to want to expand and her breath becomes a steamfest when Will’s around. Nope. There is an undeniable chemistry between them that frankly, Cassian just doesn’t have, locked at the lips or otherwise. (Gasp! Did I just tell you she kisses Cassian? Uh. No. I didn't. But there IS kissing in Vanish. And it's hot. And you should read it to find out because seriously, some of the hottest kisses around.) Plus! She's known Cassian for years, with not much more than a wrinkled nose in response. But with Will? Instant attraction, and by the time Cassian could even come close to that kind of hot attraction, Jacinda and Will are, well, let's just say it's a few notches above Cassian.

Yeah, Cassian is kind and endearing, but Will is the guy who wants to break out of the life he knows not only for Jacinda but himself as well. He’s the guy that will put her first. And he’s the guy that risks everything so they can be together. Besides, you will get a lot more of Cassian in Vanish, and maybe not as much Will (or is he splashed across the pages? Read to find out!), and yet I still am totally Team Will. That's saying something.

So yes please, Will Rutledge is the winning guy. He’s the best of both worlds, and you know what I mean if you’ve read Firelight (and if you haven’t, why not? You should get on that like now!). Also. He drives a Hummer. And it's loaded with weapons. Yeah. It’s hot.

And that, lovelies, is why Will is obviously the way to go. Rawr. Times like ten.

So what do you guys think? Team Will or Team Cassian?

Because with that, and the answer to a trivia question related to the excerpts posted throughout the week, now is your chance to win Sophie's very last Vanish ARC that is up for grabs, marked up with her commentary. Absolutely one of a kind item, so get ready!

  1. Been waiting and waiting for Vanish to come out! Team Will!

  2. I've seen this book floating around blogs, It's looks so good. The front cover is beautiful.

    x x

  3. I can't wait to read Vanish!
    I really wish I lived in US :(

  4. I am so Team Will! I can't wait for Vanish to come out!

  5. I can't decide! I have a thing for both guys. Why is choosing always so hard?!
    Thanks for the fantastic teaser tour :)

  6. I'm Team Will all the way, but I still want to know more about Cassian.


  7. I'm an international but I'd still love to win the swag!!



  8. We've finally made it to the last stop! Although Cassian intrigues me and I hope there is some more interaction with him in Vanish, I am Team Will. From the beginning he is clearly different from the other hunters. For Will to break away from the only way of life he has ever known, and doing it for Jacinda, is amazing. He is totally dreamy and I cannot wait for more Will/Jacinda action!

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway!

  9. I can't wait for this to come out! Team Will!!

  10. Hmm, I think towards the end of Firelight, I was leaning a bit towards Cassian because there's an air of mystery surrounding him! Will just seems very typical, but you never know how the second book will turn out!

  11. I'm Team Will but honestly Cassian is an intriguing character, so I'm not sure where I'll stand after Vanish, sincve we'll get to know more about Cassian. Thanks for the give away.

  12. I love your view on will I always vote for the bad boy :) thanks Rene'e Sherman
