Teaser Tuesday (20) - Special edition with The Childe Blog Tour. Win a Kindle Fire!


Time to tease!
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.




Today I will have slightly different teasers, than usually and the teasers are coming from two wonderful books! Today's teasers are part of The Childe Blog Tour and are from The Childe and Dark Days, which is a sequel for The Childe.

Besides that, you can participate in the contest for winning Kindle Fire today! The details are below the teasers.

So let's start!




The Childe Teaser:


The lights dimmed. A haunting melody began to flow from the speakers. Cat continued to sway to the music with Ryan, oblivious to the people around her. After bumping into someone Cat opened her eyes, startled to see she was engulfed by fog. She couldn’t feel Ryan holding her, he was gone. She was all alone on the dance floor. The music slowly faded and the fog began to dissipate. Looking around she realized she was in an unfamiliar room. The walls and floors were made of pristine white marble. The room was in shambles. The only light source was a broken glass chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Shards of glass littered the area around her. A fierce wind howled through the room, bringing with it stinging rain which chilled Cat to the bone. Lightning lit up the sky and the rumble of thunder quickly followed, causing more glass to splinter off from the broken windows and crash to the floor. Cat stepped back and was startled as more glass shattered at her feet. A moaning sound drew her attention to a figure lying on the floor. She realized it was a woman covered in glass, clutching her head in pain with tiny cuts visible all over her body. The woman began to scream, causing Cat to back further away. Seeming to feel Cat’s presence, the woman whipped her head around glaring at her through her wiry black hair. She hissed, baring her fangs, her eyes blazing with hatred. Cat tried to scream, but it was caught in her throat. She felt weak as if her energy was being drained, and then nothing but darkness.

Dark Days Teaser:

Realizing it was only minutes until the bell, Cat rushed down the hall toward her locker after saying her hurried goodbyes. Not wanting to be late, she feverishly dialed in her lock combo and threw it open, grabbing for her biology notebook. Losing her grip on it, it fell to the ground. As she bent down to pick it up, a large, polished, black boot stepped down on it. “I kind of need that,” she said, trying to wrestle it from underneath the shoe. Letting out a frustrated sigh she stood up and came face to face with Isaac, who was grinning devilishly at her.


“Oh my deepest apologies, is that your notebook under my foot?” he asked smugly. Cat just glared at him. Isaac’s grin increased.


“Can I have my notebook, please?” Cat asked, anger showing in her eyes.


“Sure, by all means, take it,” he replied innocently. Cat bent down and grabbed for it, noticing that more people had gathered behind him. She tried to pry the book from under his foot, but to no avail. Standing up abruptly, Cat glared at Isaac again. This time she was met by the evil stares of not only Isaac, but also Amelia, and the Stone twins.


“Having issues Cat?” Amelia asked condescendingly as the Stone twins grinned and snickered.


“No, actually I was just leaving,” Cat replied bluntly. Anger surged through her as she bent down and grabbed for her notebook again. Isaac applied more pressure on it. Cat grabbed his ankle tightly and threw his foot off the notebook, causing him to stumble backward. After picking it up, she glared at Isaac and his group. Isaac stared at her in shock as Cat walked away.


“How did she do that?” Isaac asked confused.


“Why did you let her go?” Amelia asked.


“We thought we were going to play with her,” the Stone twins said in unison.


“Well I used all my strength to push down,” he replied, anger lacing his voice.


“All your strength, are you sure?” Amelia asked in a whisper.


“Yeah, all of my strength,” he replied with one eyebrow raised. The stunned group watched Cat as she hurried down the hall.


Wow! I haven't read Dark Days yet, but honestly, I cannot wait!  The book is on its way to pop up in my mailbox and as soon as I get it, I will read and review it!

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the giveaway rules!

  3. I don't have my current read handy, but I grabbed a book off the top of my TBR pile, so this teaser is for me too.

    Moonlight & Oranges by Elise Stephens

    As he entered the kitchen, his phone buzzed with another text message.

    Are you ignoring me? I want to talk to you about this crazy marriage. Call me first thing in the morning. – Mom

    Kestrin glanced at the package on his nightstand and the pieces fell together.

    His coworker had said, “Some lady dropped this off for you. She didn’t leave a name.” Kestrin had assumed it was just another girl trying to get at him, but the text message made him reevaluate the hasty assumption.

  4. This book keeps sounding better and better! My teaser is from Rachel Vincent's My Soul to Take:

    "Do you chase after funeral processions in a long, dirty dress, hair trailing behind you in the wind?"

    I shot him a mock frown, "Have you been following me again?"
