Teaser Tuesday 1.4.11

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.
Isalys's Teaser:
"You see, my father had no killer instinct," he explained, "and no appetite for war."  Then, silently praying he wasn't making a fatal mistake, he dropped his sword to the floor and let her go.  "And neither do I."

Set free, Jossy raised her blade, and for one awful instant, Drew feared she meant to behead him then and there.  But the sword wavered in her grip, her chin trembled, and a tear spilled down her cheek."

~p. 254 of  "Seduced by Destiny" by Kira Morgan

Vanessa's Teaser
"..it's as if he hears me anyway and starts to turn, and my heart skips a beat when I don't wake up but see his face now, his mouth curling up in a half smile as he jokes with the guy next to him. He glances up and his eyes meet mine. The hallway melts away. It's only him and me now, in the forest. The vision comes from behind him, the fire on the hillside roaring toward us, faster than it could ever possibly happen. I have to save him, I think. That's when I faint."

~p. 35 of "Unearthly" by Cynthia Hand {it's an ARC so the pages are off}
