Teaser Tuesday 132: Cry Wolf

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 book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

I started another book by Patricia Briggs Sunday night, Cry Wolf, the first in her "Alpha and Omega" series. Since I am only a few chapters into it, here is how the prologue ends (and yes, more than two sentences):

The wind picked up, and he thought the temperature dropped a few degrees—but that might have just have been blood loss and shock. He closed his eyes and waited patiently for death, his old enemy, to claim him at long last. The knife was still in his right hand, just in case the pain was too much. Belly wounds weren’t the easiest way to die.

But it wasn’t death that came during the heart of the first blizzard of the season.

Cry Wolf (Alpha and Omega #1)
By Patricia Briggs

[It is recommended that one read this series in order and, if you are interested in this book, try to read "Alpha and Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf" first.]

Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack. . . and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna's inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.

Excellent teaser! I really need to check this one out – thank you for sharing! :)

Here’s mine:

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

With repeated exposure to snippets from vampire/werewolf books throughout the blogosphere, I am gradually finding that I might just have to read one! lol

Thanks for sharing...and here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

Heather said...

Thanks, Amy! So far this one is pretty good.

Laurel-Rain: Mwahahaha...we're corrupting you! I admit, I was always more of a were girl than vampire, until people in the blogosphere turned me onto a few series, like those by Charlaine Harris and MaryJanice Davidson.

I've been wanting to read her Mercy Thompson series.

Heather said...

Alice: As if I'd tell. Really. *WEG*
