Happy Saturday Everyone!   I hope you all had a great week!  Walking through my closing Borders gave me some ideas of what to post today so on with it we go.
Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls Series #3) by Maggie Stiefvater: Book Cover Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Synopsis:

The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater

In Maggie Stiefvater’s SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

 

 

 

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce: Book CoverSistersRed by Jackson Pearce

Synopsis:

Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris–the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She’s determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls’ bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett’s only friend–but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they’ve worked for?

 

 

Demonglass (Hex Hall Series #2) by Rachel Hawkins: Book Cover  Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Synopsis:

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Acher to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

I have two teasers for Week’s Teaser Tuesday:

New York to Dallas (In Death Series #33) by J. D. Robb: Book Cover
New York to Dallas

Synopsis:

In the locker room Eve tied on the hard black uniform shoes. She hated them — always had — but regulation was regulation. She pushed off the bench, then reached for her uniform cap. Turning to the mirror, she fixed it squarely on her head.

She could see herself as she’d been a dozen years before, green as spring, with a shine on her shield and on those damned hard black shoes.

A cop, then and now, without any question, any hesitation, over what she was meant to be. Had to be. She’d thought she’d known, but she hadn’t known, really hadn’t begun to know what she would see and do, what she would learn and come to accept. What she would live through and live with.

A lot of corners turned, she thought, and one sharp, jagged corner had been turned the moment she’d stepped into apartment 303 on 258 Murray one sweltering day in late September, barely six weeks after she’d graduated from the Academy.

She remembered the fear, the coppery smear of it in her throat, and she remembered the horror like a red haze.

Teaser – Page 39

It was important to pay attention, take in the details, know where you were.  She appreciated Fergus for trusting her to do so, trusting her to handle the knock on doors on her own, even if it was just another routine.

Routines made up the whole, formed the structure for everything else.  Boredom was a factor, sure, in the routine of knocking, identifying, questioning, moving on, and doing it all again and again.  But whenever boredom tried to sneak in, she reminded herself she was a cop, she was doing the job.

 

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: Book Cover
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Synopsis:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel.

With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff–with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.

Teaser Page 56

Corr lifts his head, ears pricked, neck curved, as if he’s courting the Scorpio sea.  I whisper to him and tug his lead.  It’s me I want him paying attention to, not the song of this powerful water.  I watch his eye, his ears, the line of his body, to see whose voice will be more potent tonight, mine or the ocean’s.

 

 

 

So those are my Teaser Tuesday highlights for this week.  What about you?  Please leave me a link or comment.
