Teaser Tuesday with Alchemystic

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!
This is the newest book from Anton Strout. His Simon Canderous series is hilarious. His writing is very Buffy-esque. Alchemystic is an urban fantasy about a gargoyle. Pretty cool, eh? Makes me miss the Gargoyles cartoon.
Here's your teaser:
With perfect accuracy, my stone form hit the man hard - as I had intended - driving his body away from the woman, the sound of cracking running through him. So fragile, these creatures. (page 73)

    1. I remember it! It was called Gargoyles! Hehehe! They had names like Brooklyn and Bronx. The main guy was Goliath.

  4. Great teaser! I love the 'so fragile these creatures' line :)

    I'm reading a mystery, The Last Matryoshka by Joyce Yarrow. 9% in ... "The man never had an unpleasant thought he didn't share. He had brought these troubles on himself, I was sure of that."
