Teaser Tuesday (9)


Teaser Tuesdays is 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
    *****
    As you may know, I am a sucker for the Fallen series, even though I rant about them all the time. You may also know that Passion-- the third book in Lauren Kate's series-- was just released a couple weeks ago. So, I immediately ran to the library to pick it up, because despite the flaws, I need to know what happens next! I'm a little more than halfway through Passion right now, and I have to say, it is actually pretty good so far. The writing isn't exactly brilliant, but the plot is moving along and things are finally starting to happen. So, here is my teaser for this week:

    "The voice next to Daniel made him jump. He had carelessly assumed he was alone. The voice was a parched and raspy whisper, but somehow still familiar. 


    Then came a scraping sound, like metal being dragged across stone. Daniel stiffened as a blacker piece of shadow detached itself from the darkness and leaned forward... He'd forgotten this cell, forgotten this punishment. So this is where he'd ended up."

    ~Chapter 12, p. 229

    What is everyone else reading this week??

    11. This reminds me that I still haven't read this series. :D But I'm also not very sure whether I want to read those novels, because I have heard lots of mixed things about it.
      Nonetheless, thanks a lot for sharing the teaser with us! It sounds quite intriguing. :)
