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!
"Footsteps echoed slowly
in the distance and a third torch moved into sight, carried by a hunched figure
walking with slow, shuffling steps. It was a man, his face lit by the flames
while his eyes stared hard at the ground. Kate stayed still. The man stopped,
straightened his back with great effort, and raised his nose to the air. Then
he turned, his bloodshot eyes suddenly looking right into hers."
