Teaser Tuesday 295: The Insider

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

This week's teaser is again from Ridley Pearson's The Insider, a young adult fantasy series set in the Disney parks. The exchange below is between two of the Kingdom Keepers, Finn and Maybeck, and while it is much more than two lines, it had me laughing out loud.

"Let me get this straight. We're going into Disneyland, a place where some of us have never been, trying to find an old dude who may not be there. We can't control when we arrive or when we leave, and the best clue we have is a bunch of demons who nearly smoked us the other night?"

"Well," Finn says, "yeah."

Maybeck nods. "Well, good. Glad to hear it. I'm in, by the way. Have a magical evening."

(Chapter 13)

About the book:
Series: Kingdom Keepers #7

Deep within the catacombs beneath an Aztec temple, a Disney witch doctor is summoning powers that should be left alone. As terrifying wraiths and demons attack the Archives on the Walt Disney Studios lot, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, Finn, Willa, Philby, Maybeck, and Charlene are summoned to Disneyland fresh from high school graduation. They must stop an enemy that hasn't been clearly identified.

In this, the final installment in the epic Kingdom Keepers series, betrayal and ambition push the boundaries of loyalty. Chasing scattered clues in pursuit of a long-lost icon--whose magic offers a fighting chance against an evil that Walt Disney himself created--the Keepers find their hearts and minds tested in the park where it all began. Bonds that once threatened to fray are renewed under the pressure for survival. As the five are pushed to their limits--and then beyond--feelings intensify behind self-imposed walls of well-kept secrets.

With its dazzling action sequences and moments of touching intimacy, Kingdom Keepers VII: The Insider will leave readers breathless, cheering, and biting their nails. It's a winner-take-all battle for magical good--but then why is Disneyland burning out of control?

I detect a hint of cynicism.

Heather said...

Thanks, everyone!

Alice: With a smidgen of sarcasm. *G*

Alice Audrey said...

Just a smidgen.

About Dirt, I can't really recommend it. Don't think I'll finish.

Sorry to hear that one's not working out for you. Some books are like that. :-\
