Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!

This week, my Teaser is from Blood and Other Cravings, edited by Ellen Datlow. It’s a book of short stories about vampires…sort of. Not exactly typical vampires, but things that live off of other things. Sometimes, they steal your energy, sometimes they steal your will to live. There are some very creepy stories and this is one of my favorites, “X for Demetrious.”

“In this instant Demetrious learned a great lesson: that there is dread at the heart of all things, that fear comes to all men at the end and reclaims them for its own. Birthed in blood and chaos, we struggle a little while till inexorably we are undone, and horror waits panting at both ends of existence.”

Not a very cheerful view of life, is it? But perhaps Demetrious has good reasons for that attitude….

What’s teasing YOU this week?

    You’re right! That is not at all cheerful. My teasers are from Lawe’s Justice by Lora Leigh and Kaptain Vamp by Joanne Lecuyer. Two very different reads!

    That’s pretty depressing. The book sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.
