Teaser Tuesday - 7/15/14



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!

This week's teaser is from this series that I am in the middle of. The teaser is from the third book but doesn't give anything away (the summary will be for the first book). It's the Daughters of the Sea Series by Kristen DaySo far this series has been so great and I'm so happy to have picked it up!! Just saying, I don't think I've ever seen or typed the word 'bedazzled" as much as I just did for this teaser! Happy Reading.

"I think I should hang on to the dagger for safe keeping..." Finn informed us wickedly and attempted to hide it behind his back.
"You have your own bedazzled weapons," I scolded him. "This one stays with me."
"My weapons are not bedazzled," he spit out, almost chocking on the word 'bedazzled'.
"Of course they are!" I smiled at him happily.
"They are jeweled, not bedazzled," he corrected me.
"Definitely bedazzled."

Summary: Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago. 

Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.
Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity. 

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendents of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love. 

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesized to be a part of. The fate of all the descendents will forever depend upon it.
