Teaser Tuesday - 3/11/14



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!

So I'm currently reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor! And I'm lovin it so far!! So here's a teaser!!

"I'm being stalked."
Zuzana arched an eyebrow. She was a master of the eyebrow arch, and Karou envied her for it. Her own eyebrows did not function independently of each other, which handicapped her expression of suspicion and distain.
Zuzana could do both perfectly, but this was milder eyebrow action, merely cool curiosity. "Don't tell me Jack*** tried to scare you again."
"He's going through a vampire phase. He bit my neck."
"Actors," muttered Zuzana. "I'm telling you, you need to tase the loser. Teach him to go jumping out at people."
"I don't have a Taser." Karou didn't add that she didn't need a Taser; she was more than capable of defending herself without electricity. She'd had an unusual education.
"Well, get one. Seriously. Bad behavior should be punished. Plus,it would be fun. Don't you think? I've always wanted to taser someone. Zap!" Zuzana mimicked convulsions.
Karou shook her head. " No tiny violent one, I don't think it would be fun. You're terrible."

Summary: Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hairactually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
