Teaser Tuesdays (24)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"I knew I had to find my parents and I tried to turn, tried to look for them, but it was dark again, so dark, and I couldn't see a thing. I screamed for them again but nothing came out, like the darkness had taken me away; like I was outside, but not in the outside where they were, not like I was anywhere they were, and I felt rough wood, tree bark, under my cheek, and I was lying down somehow. I was shivering and the red was everywhere now, all over me, and I was going to see, I was going to see-Silver, gleaming cold and precise. Silver, moving and slicing down, down, down."


Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin
p. 15 (ARC)

Synopsis from book cover:

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.

Low Red Moon is inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. I like it so far and can definitely see why it is being suggested for fans of Shiver.
