Teaser Tuesday - Heartless, & Dead Until Dark

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

This week we have two Teasers.  The 1st is, of course, from Dead Until Dark.  I'm still enjoying this novel, and I encourage you to join me each Monday and Friday for my Read & React feature!  This coming Friday will be Part 5 (Chapters 9 & 10), but it's not too late to join in!  For more information, read the original announcement, or go directly to the Read & React posts!
Part 1 - Chapters 1 & 2.
Part 2 - Chapters 3 & 4.
Part 3 - Chapters 5 & 6.
Part 4 - Chapters 7 & 8.
Everyone is welcome - Hope to see you there!!

The Tease:
"I drank and saw visions, visions all with a background of darkness, of white things coming up from the ground and going hunting, the thrill of the run through the woods, the prey panting ahead and the excitement of its fear; pursuit, legs pumping, hearing the thrumming of blood through the veins of the pursued...I raised my head from his neck, and a wave of dark delight carried me out to sea."
- Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1), by Charlaine Harris

 The Second Tease:
 "With a roar so loud it was guaranteed to shake the porcupines in their boots, had they been wearing any, her husband shook off the creatures and reared back, as though luring them to follow him.  Perhaps he was not so disabled as he pretended.  Perhaps he was trying to draw them away from Alexia."
 - Heartless: The Parasol Protectorate, Book the Fourth, by Gail Carriger

What's your Tease?


  1. I read Dead until Dark couple months back and loved it!

  2. @"Confuzzled" Shannon Hi Shannon! Thanks for stopping by! If you loved Dead Until Dark, you should definitely check out my Read & React for the book - you might find it interesting...

  3. Great teasers! I want to know what happens next--in both of them. :)

  4. I made it to book three in the Sookie Stackhouse series before I stopped. But the other book sounds interesting...might have to read the back cover on that one!

  5. I love both of these descriptions. I've never heard of either of these books before, now I have to look into them.
