Teaser Tuesday - 8/26/14


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, because I don't have any teasers cause I'm reading anything at the moment and I can't think of anything to give, I'm posting picture teasers for a book that's coming up from one of my favorite authors. It is called Shattered Assassin by Wendy Knight. It comes out in less than a month! Happy Reading.

So I'm in a reread kick of my favorites series, and I'm currently rereading the Covenant Series by Jennifer Armentrout for the seventh time. I know y'all are probably sick of seeing her name all the time, or not, but that's what you get when she's my favorite author. You're stuck and I'm *slightly* obsessed. Anyways everyone has a favorite book, series, author that they always go to - at least ya should if you've been reading right :) Anyways, Aiden and Alex from this series are the best. They are my opt and I love reading their story over and over and over. Happy Reading!

I stood and stretched. "So. what am I learning today? I think we ahould start with something that doesn't involve you kicking my a--."
His lips twitched as if he was fighting a grin. "The basics."
"The basics." I pouted. "You've gotto be kidding me. I know the basics."
"You know enough to not get yourself killed right away." He frowned as I jumped from side to side. "What are you doing?"
I stopped, shrugging. "I'm bored."
Aiden rolled his eyes. "Then let's get started. You won't be bored for very long."

Summary: The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals--well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
