Teaser Tuesday with Dark Currents

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!
Jacqueline Carey is one of my favorite authors. If you haven't read her original Kushiel trilogy, you need to get your hands on it now. Incredible dark fantasy romance. Dark Currents is her newest book in a new YA series. Lots of paranormals you usually don't get to see are in it. It's a lot of fun so far.
Here's your teaser:
Ultimately there was always a spark missing, a level of passion I hungered for that went beyond the mere mortal. And yes, there was usually a point where they freaked out on me, and yes, it had a lot to do with the tail. (page 61)

  8. This sounds like a fun monthly event. I'd like to participate after the first of the year and all the holiday dust settles.

    And thanks for signing up for the Alexfest!

  9. What I discovered, when I followed Mr. Harvey's stare to the crawlspace, were these animals that had gone missing for more than a year.

    Pretty easy to guess since the book is very popular and I gave one name.
