Teaser Tuesday (16)

 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!

    A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix
    Book One of The Makers Song

    He knew how difficult and contrary Dante could be -- the child had often tested his own considerable patience -- and Wallace had simply reacted to Dante's refusal to cooperate.  But... why did Wallace even wish to search the courtyard?

    Book Synopsis:

    HIS NAME IS DANTE. Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.

    HIS PAST IS A MYSTERY.  F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be "nightkind": in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.

    HIS FUTURE IS CHAOS. What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer -- and she's pretty sure that link makes him the CCK's next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man -- who, she begins to believe, may indeed be a vampire -- in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante's past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny....

    Hi Aimee,

    This sounds like an intriguing storyline and your teaser lines certainly did not give anything away.

    I find that some book synopses give so much away, that they are in danger of spoiling the entire reading experience.

    There has to be some intrigue and mystery, or it's not worth while reading!!

    Happy New Year.

    Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?

    Interesting teaser!

    Ladybug said...

    Great teaser! From the cover I would also guess that there might be a kick-ass heroine in this novel.

    Aimee said...

    Ladybug, the cover is very misleading, I think. There is a strong heroine in the book, but she's FBI so I don't think it fits the characters image.
