Teaser Tuesday 7: Unhallowed Ground


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!


She saw and felt the essence of evil, heard the rasp of its fetid breath, smelled flesh and blood and bone and the pungence of the earth as her fate stepped closer and closer still, drawing pleasure from her terror and her newfound knowledge...

She had not come to make a sacrifice.

She had come to be the sacrifice.

That's certainly an "Oh no!" moment for you. Is this a heroine, or what Trekkies refer to as a "red shirt."

Zia said...

I like that teaser. So descriptive.

Marg said...

Very dramatic moment!

I have two teasers this week.
