Teaser Tuesday--Four



Gerard's:

"I hid in the bathtub until help came.  A cop shot one of my dogs."

From page 13 of The Hand that Feeds You by A. J. Rich. (Click link for review)

When I just stared at him, he said, "For having the nerve to request where I slaughter you, I'll let you in on a secret, human:  Prythian must claim your life in some way, for the life you took from it.  So as a representative of the immortal realm, I can either gut you like swine, or . . . you can cross the wall and live out the remainder of your days in Prythian."
From page 37 of TA Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.

Still, I can hear this one thought hiding in the dark corners of my mind.  It doesn't attack like the others.

From page 9 of Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone.
Karen's
"No, tomorrow you won't."  In a move quick and precise, the sword cut the air, blood sprayed my horse's mane, and the man's head toppled to the ground.
From page 276 of The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles--Book 2) by Mary E. Paerson.

"The Hand That Feeds You" by A. J. Rich

The Hand That Feeds You by A. J. Rich is about a lady named Morgan.  She is living with her fiance named Bennet and her dogs.  One day she comes home and her fiance is dead.  it looks like her dogs did it, but has a hard time accepting that.  On further investigation it turns out the name of her fiance was false and this man has a history of wrong doing.

This is a real page turner that I enjoyed.  I loved how the dogs were kept in the story for almost the whole book!  (Gerard's review, 5 stars)

The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Mass is Fantastic!

The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Mass is made up of five short stories that give background on Celaena, the main character in The Throne of Glass series.  This collection could have easily been a novel because the stories follow in chronological order.  The three big things I got out of this book were:  (1)  I got to see a different side of Celaena; (2) Got to know Sam and about his relationship with Celaena; and (3) got to know more about Arobynn Hamel (the guy who trained her to be an assassin).

Wow!  This book is fantastic!  The stories are very good and filled with twists and turns.  I LOVED IT A LOT!  I would recommend reading this first before the Throne of Glass series although I didn't do it that way and still enjoyed it.  I just think reading this one first would give you helpful background on Celaena going into the next books.

Teaser Tuesday



Gerard's:

Joe's body jumped as if he'd been given a jolt of electricity.  An alarm sounded.  Code blue.

From page 49 of Invasion of Privacy by Christopher Reich. (Click link for review)

She removed the dagger from his throat, using the blade to brush back a strand of his dark hair.  "I have my sources."
From page 72 of The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass Novellas) by Sarah J. Maas.
Karen's
"I don't think you particularly want to see how angry and vicious and awful I am underneath."  
"Go ahead and be as nasty as you want, Princess, because I've been ten times as nasty, for ten times longer than you've been alive."

 From page 89 of Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.

Every day I would come home and see her shadow.  It's what gave me hope that one day we would be able to be together:  the fact that she still thought about me.
From page 25 of Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover.

"Invasion of Privacy" by Christopher Reich

Invasion of Privacy by Christopher Reich is told by Mary.  Her husband, Joe, worked for the FBI and was killed.  End of story.   BUT, Mary believes it is not that simple and wants to know why the cover up?  This book is a page turner.  I got into it early on and the story line is good and very believable.  I liked all the characters too.  Read this, you'll be glad you did!
(Gerard's review, 5++ stars)
