I got mail from Shay Doran of Nightshade!

These items came in the mail today from Shay Doran of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer.  (Such an awesome marketing technique, by the way!)

The contents:

Nightshade pre-order card
Letter from Shay
Reprint of second London edition of History of Greece, Vol. IV (Nations of the World Series) by George Grote, from the library in Shay's house

The letter reads:
Hey Jenny,
Thanks for helping me with this.  I think if we all post pics on Facebook of the clues we find, then together we can solve this mystery.

The book's title page has writing on it:
Guardians have been called on before for battle but time is fading their memories of that great and horrible war.  If it happens again they must be made ready.  The bloodlines must insure that the strongest lead.  Anything else would be failure.

There were two pages bookmarked:

Keepers diverge from the conatus.
Elemental cross forseen to bring ruin.

What does it all mean? If you have any ideas, visit Shay's Facebook page (linked above) to help him figure it out!

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer hits bookshelves on October 19, 2010.
