Teaser Tuesday (28)


Teaser Tuesday

is a weekly event.

Sponsored by MizB of Should be Reading.

Here's how it works:
Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)
Open the book to any random page.
Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.
Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!
(Don't Give Too Much Away)
Just enough to pique our interests.

List the book and author so other participants can get their hand on it if they choose to read it as well.

This Week:

After an eternity, a hint of red tinged the horizon, followed by orange, yellow, and then a glorious white. The other corelings slipped back down to the Core before the yellow touched the sky, but the giant waited until the last, its rows of teeth bared as it hissed at him.

Zia - You guessed it right on. :) These are demons, that appear in the night, that are disappearing as the sun comes up. Thanks.

Melissa - Thanks! I am enjoying the book, although I am only 60 pages in. But it is quick to catch my attention and hold it. :)

I love when you can tell a book is well-written just from one or two sentences. The rich descriptions in your teaser are amazing! Excellent choice!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

The Bookish Type - I have to agree with you. You are so right on the well-written part. It really is well done, at least so far - 90 pgs in. I can really see everything in my mind. Thank you! :)

Jackie said...

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Hi Jackie! :) Yeah, those rows of teeth sound scary. Thanks for stopping by.
