Teaser Tuesday ♡ – Week 54


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!

This week’s teaser comes from “The Immortal Rules” by Julie Kagawa:

The pet stood on the edge of the platform, puffed up and swaggering, as if he’d caught the kids himself. He was walking back and forth, pointing to the condemned and rattling a list of crimes, his pale eyes gleaming with triumph.

“…assaulting a citizen of the Inner City, robbery, trespassing and resisting arrest. These criminals attempted to steal Class One foodstuffs from a private warehouse of the Inner City. This is a crime against you, and more important, a crime against our beloved Masters.”

I snorted. Fancy words and legal mumbo jumbo didn’t erase the fact that these “criminals” were doing what all Unregistereds did to survive. For whatever reasons, fate, pride, or stubbornness we nonregistered humans didn’t have the mark of our vampire masters etched into our skin, the brands that told you who you were and who you belonged to. Of course, the vampires said it was to keep us safe, to keep track of everyone within the city, to know how much food they had to allow for. It was for our own good.
