Teaser Tuesday (39)

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:

It had been cold dark February when Thea and her father had boarded the airplane to New Mexico, bound for Cheveyo's country, but the air was scented with late summer as the Alphiri Portal deposited Thea near her home and winked out of existence behind her. Dark green leaves of the big-leaf maple trees and the fernlike fronds of cedars nodded in the slight breeze as she made her way from the woods.

  1. Very intriguing! I love the vivid descriptions, and the mention of an "Alphiri Portal" definitely has me curious! These covers are so great!

  5. Portal travel, how neat. This will be another book you have me putting on a list to check out. Not just because of the teaser but because this is one of my quirky interests ever since read my first book and saw my first movie about traveling through time and space, the possibility and the fantasy interests me!
    I am happy you stopped by my teaser earlier and know exactly what you mean about time getting away from you when everything else takes priority over getting to visit the blogs!!!

    Here is to TGIF and hope you have a great weekend...

Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
