Teaser Tuesday - 7/22/14



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!

Okay I completely know this is a day late but here is my teaser anyways. It's the Daughters of the Sea Series by Kristen Day (again!). Last week's teaser was also from this series but this is now coming from the fourth book. I just love these books! Happy Reading.

"You've never had to compete against me," I taunted him. "I do believe you've met your match." One more potential upside to being an immortal sea Goddess: destroying your boyfriend in competition. As far as the other sea Gods and Goddesses who'd been around for centuries and probably participated in dozens of Atlantean Games, I didn't have a snowball's chance in hell.
"Tell yourself what you have to!" He laughed and threw his arm around my neck in a feeble attempt to put me in a headlock. "Cause you don't stand a chanc-"
I ducked under his arm and caught him off-guard by flipping him over and onto the floor. I smiled down at him sweetly as his cheeks burned. "I'm sorry honey, you were saying...?"

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.
