Teaser Tuesdays (02-21-12 edition)

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!
Today's Teaser:

He said nothing, but dug his long thumbnails into the flesh of my bare leg with the kind of gleeful ferocity he usually reserved for killing and skinning small animals.

"You don't ever tell," he hissed. A warm, acrid trail of smoke escaped from the side of his mouth, the nails embedded sharper. "If you don't want this every day."


-- The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson, pg. 71

It's not all creepy though. A good mystery novel.
