Teaser Tuesdays (25)

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!

My teaser this week:

"He raised a hand to shove me aside. I whipped my fist low, catching him with a sharp jab in the stomach. The air wooshed from his lungs and he doubled over in pain. Now that he was close, I caught his scent: not human."

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
p. 89-90 (ARC)

While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

This book reminds me a lot of Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause. I've only read a few chapters but I like it so far.
