Teaser Tuesday with Downpour

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!
I'm a big fan of Kat Richardson's Greywalker series. It's a dark and creepy urban fantasy with a little bit of romance. If you like books with a noir feel, this series is for you. Downpour is the sixth installment of Harper Blaine's supernatural adventures as a PI walking the border between two worlds.
Here's your teaser:
"All the people in the valley drowned and the lakes formed over their corpses. That's what this is, a valley full of blood, a lake full of death." (page 106)

  15. Wow - what a chilling teaser. If my books were organized on a book shelf - instead of in boxes - I would totally do some teasers of my own.

  18. Wow, not only is that dark, but it's pretty depressing too. I want to wrap myself up in my duvet to get warm. I love the look of the cover though.
