Teaser Tuesday #2

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 with 14 comments
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 comes from the following book:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Title:  The Immortal Rules
Author:  Julie Kagawa
Series:  1st book in the Blood of Eden series
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen
Publication Date:  April 24, 2012
Source:  ARC

In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die or become one of the monsters.

Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.


My teaser:

"Whoops."  Zeke put out both hands to steady us.  For a half-second, we were face-to-face, so close I could see the rings of silver around his pupils, hear the pulse at his throat.  The Hunger stirred, and I clamped down on it, hard. - p. 277-278


I love Julie's The Iron Fey series -- so much so that I forced it upon my bestest book buddy, who is reading it now after loving The Immortal Rules -- and I can't wait to delve further into this futuristic vampire world she's created! 

What are you reading this week?

  9. Well, you know what I'm reading this week - hehehe! I really hope that you enjoy TIR as much as I did. I am glad that I read it first, though. While I really liked TIR, I do believe I'm loving The Iron Fey series a bit more. I blame Puck. Wonderful teaser, Jen! This is officially my favorite meme! <3
