Teaser Tuesday 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(s) comes from the following book(s):

Add to Goodreads
Title: Taken
Author: Erin Bowman
Series: Taken, book #1
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: April 16, 2013
Source: ARC received from publisher
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

My teaser:

He twists around, his face right before mine.  The eye above his scar is disconcertingly foggy.  "If you know what's good for you and your girlfriend, you will shut up and follow us to safety.  But if you want to burn, by all means, stay here."
-- p. 98

Me and this book got off to a bad start, but it's picking up.  It probably doesn't help that I read Arclight right before this, and that book was pretty phenomenal as far as sci-fi goes.

Title: The Eternity Cure
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Blood of Eden, book #2
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: April 30, 2013

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

My teaser:

Carefully, I grasped my sword and eased it out, being sure the metal didn't scrape against the sheath.  Getting here had been way too easy.  Whoever was on the other side of that door knew I was coming.  If Sarren was expecting me, I'd be ready, too.  If Kanin was in there, I wasn't leaving until I got him out safe.

Eeek!  Kanin!  After that prequel story in 'Til the World Ends, I've been dying for some more Kanin.  And I've heard we get to see more of him in this book, though I can't confirm yet because me and my buddy are taking it easy on this read along...just a few chapters a night to soak it all in.  =)
