Teaser Tuesday!



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.

This week's teaser is from Half-Blood, by JL Armentrout.

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)

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.
(From GoodReads)

Here's my teaser  (Between Alex and ?):

"  'Hey, ' I reached out and tapped the hand that rested next to my left leg. 'You are-'

The hand that I tapped reached up and clasped mine. I froze as he threaded his fingers through mine. 'I'm what?'

Beautiful. Kind. Patient. Perfect. I said none of those things. Instead, I stared at his fingers, wondering if he knew he was holding my hand."

I know that this was kind of a long teaser, but I couldn't figure out how to condense the scene without taking away from it. I really enjoyed Half-Blood. Come back and read my review later this week.

Paperback, 281 pages
Expected publication: October 18th 2011 by Spencer Hill Press
