Teaser Tuesday 7.6.10

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...

  • Grab your current read

  • Open to a random page

  • Share a couple of “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 & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

  • Vanessa's Teaser:
    "I smell a human," it cackled, running a purple tongue over its fangs. "I smell young girl blood, and sweeter flesh than a monster's." I hurried away, walking around the stage, but it followed. "Come to me, little girl," it crooned. "Monster flesh is bitter, not like sweet young humans. I just want a nibble. Maybe just a finger."

    ~ p. 177 of "The Iron King" by Julie Kagawa

    3. Novel: The Darkness That Comes Before
      Author: R.Scott Baker

      Momumental rage filled him. It didn't understand! It didn't understand. With a coughing roar, he lurched forward, yanking his hair from the scalp. The Synthese seemed to flicker out of his path, but it wasn't its death he sought. Any price, old teacher. The stone rail slammed against his hips, broke like a cake. Again he was floating, but it was so different-- air whipping across his face, bathing his body. With a single outstreched hand, Paro Inrau followed a pillar to the earth.

    4. OOooooo good one :0)

      If you get a chance, maybe you can visit my Teaser Tuesday :)

    5. Ohh...that's creepy/awesome. And a little bit gruesome, too. Although, to be fair, humans probably DO taste better than monsters...(I hope!)

      Nice teaser!
