Teaser Tuesday 4th October 2016.


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted on Books and a Beat.

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!

My Choice: Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen.


Page 299:

In the valley beyond the horses, the Rangers were practicing with their guns, shooting cacti full of holes while training the newer horses not to care about the sound of bullets.

“Care to fire off a few rounds?” the Captain called.

Nettie shook her head. “Reckon this fight’ll be more personal,” she answered.

When she walked on, he didn’t protest. Just went back to shooting the world full of holes.

Book Blurb:

Nettie Lonesome lives in a land of hard people and hard ground dusted with sand. She’s a half-breed who dresses like a boy, raised by folks who don’t call her a slave but use her like one. She knows of nothing else. That is, until the day a stranger attacks her. When nothing, not even a sickle to the eye can stop him, Nettie stabs him through the heart with a chunk of wood, and he turns into black sand.

And just like that, Nettie can see.

But her newfound sight is a blessing and a curse. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s under her own skin, she can sense what everyone else is hiding — at least physically. The world is full of evil, and now she knows the source of all the sand in the desert. Haunted by the spirits, Nettie has no choice but to set out on a quest that might lead to her true kin… if the monsters along the way don’t kill her first.

  2. Is this the one you told me had some historical fiction references? If Wyatt Earp is in it that would be cool. You know I have yet to do a teaser for any of my books. Maybe I’ll try this with one of scary books. I’m thinking Salem’s Lot of The Shining. 🎃💀👻🕸
