Teaser Tuesday with Dead Things

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 picked this one up randomly from the library. I was craving some dark urban fantasy with a noir edge. So far, so good. It's a bit like the Dresden Files, but Eric isn't quite as funny and he's a necromancer. DEAD THINGS by Stephen Blackmoore is gritty and unique. Voodoo and Aztec Death gods wandering around. Very cool.

Here's your teaser:
"You want to hire me."
"No," she says. "I want to own you." (page 68)

  8. It's too bad there was only one season of the Dresden Files. Great stuff. I'll have to make a note of this book.
