Teaser Tuesday - 10th Feb 2015


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!
My teaser is taken from Unhinged (Splintered #2) by the most awesome A.G. Howard. I've connected with her on twitter and she is one of the nicest and funniest authors I've ever known. If you want to follow her, here's her twitter username: @aghowardwrites

The teaser is taken after a scene where Morpheus saves Al's life:

"You didn't leave me," I utter in disbelief, "I thought you would leave me."He releases my face and looks out the opposite window while rubbing his hand on his jeans to wipe off my mascara. "Nonsense. I stayed for the car."

I couldn't help but share another one with Morpheus :P


"...For the only way you'll be able to defeat Red is by learning to be merciless. Compassion has no place on any battlefield....magical or otherwise."




Synopsis:

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of. 


That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn't show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland - where she (partly) belongs. 


As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus's unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he's forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won't be far behind.


If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.

  7. I recently finished Splintered and loved it! Both are good teasers and the first one cracked me up. Can't wait to read more from the series and wouldn't be surprised to see these as movies in the future.
