Teaser Tuesday: Firelight

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!


This week my teaser comes from Firelight, a new young adult novel about a shape-shifting teenage dragon, who, sick from being separated from her draki pride, falls in love with a boy who hunts her kind. Pretty good so far! From page 92:


FirelightYes, being around him feeds my draki, and it's all about that right now. About me doing whatever I can to keep that part of myself alive. But he's everything I should avoid. For a draki, he's death. Ironic, huh? To keep that part of me alive, I have to be close to that which kills it.

Got a teaser? Please leave a comment with a link so I can visit!
And be sure to stop by everyday between December 1-12
to enter to win great books and an e-reader!

  17. Here is my teaser from The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent (Page 8):

    Martha saw it all clear in that moment: this was the instant her place in the family would be decided. If she lost her footing at the outset, she would forever be dealt with as no more than a servant.

  21. Draki is going to be the death of her.

    PS good eye on catching the Pantheon in the pic, we went there during last year's summer holiday... I love Venice more though. I would move there despite the fact it's sinking into the waters more and more each year.... Such a romantic place.
