Teaser Tuesdays (42): Billow (Ondine Quartet #2)

Teaser a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

It has been six months since ondine Kendra Irisavie arrived in Haverleau, the hidden capital of the water elemental world.
Six months since she discovered her destiny as the sondaleur.
Six months since a series of devastating events left behind their mark. 
Now, as she enters the chevalier elite program in her final year at Lumiere Academy, Kendra continues forward on her prophesied journey against the Shadow. Obsessed with what she must do to keep those around her safe, she struggles to balance her powerful magic and the demands of her fate with the challenges of friendship, the complications of romance, and the bonds of family. 
Meanwhile, the threat of the Shadow looms larger. Kendra and her friends investigate a series of puzzling human and elemental disappearances in the city of Lyondale and uncover a horrifying tactic used by the Aquidae in the war.
When danger strikes close to home, Kendra must separate the truths from the lies and choose who and what to believe. 
Even if it means facing what she fears the most.

So, this teaser is a little longer than two sentences because I wanted to tease part of the awesome Prologue of this book...
Blackness closed in.

Thick and viscous, the oppressive horror coated every pore.
A scream built.
No air. No sound. No sight.
Just the choking absence of everything.
I pushed. Something was there. I could feel it.
But the more I shoved, the stronger the monstrosity became.
I wildly clawed at the space in front of me, trying to fight through.
The suffocating pressure grew, seeping under skin.
Tightening. Squeezing.
Cold terror pounded.
I had to see. I needed to see...(eARC, location 73-77)

Your turn to tease me ;)
