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:

Add to Goodreads
Title:  Something Strange and Deadly
Author:  Susan Dennard
Series:  1st book in the Something Strange and Deadly series
Publisher:  HarperTeen
Publication Date:  July 24, 2012
Source:  ARC from publisher
Purchase:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble

The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

My teaser:

"I'd been electrocuted.  That's what Daniel had said.  I shuddered.  Bad enough the Spirit-Hunters had battled a spirit, but then they'd had to bring an unconscious lady home.
Merciful heavens, had they met Mama?"  -- p. 187 of ARC

Hmmm...I'm guessing Mama isn't too pleasant.  Lol.

You guys have no idea how excited I am to be reading this novel right now.  I was expecting zombies, but it appears that the Dead can also be the spirits of the dead manifesting themselves in our realm.  Quite intriguing!

Be sure to check back on July 28th when the Something Strange and Deadly Blog Tour stops by!
