Teaser Tuesday (5)

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!

This week I’m reading,

Hard Magic by Laura Anne Gilman

“I doubted my investigation into my father’s death was on any record; to the rest of the world, Zaki Torres just disappeared one day, same as my mother did, three months after I was born. 
No foul play on her part - she just decided she didn’t want to be a mom, handed me over the Zaki, and split.”
p. 99


  1. this sounds like something I like to read

    Here's mine.

  2. Great teaser! This looks like an awesome book. Thanks for commenting on my teaser. :D

    Oh and sorry for the delay, but your bookmark did go out in the mail yesterday. You should have it soon! :D

  3. Wonderful teaser, yet I am sad for her. I do not know anything about the book, so I shall look further into it. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/04/teaser-tuesdays-in-shadow-of-cypress.html

  4. Sounds like a fun and interesting read. My teaser is up at Calico Contemplations.

  5. This looks like a great book. Good teaser. I hope you enjoy the book.

  6. Oooh, sounds really good. And the cover is nice too.

  7. I looked for this book but the stores here didn't have it. Perhaps, it will be out this week. Cool teaser. I hope that you will enjoy your book. [My Tuesday Teaser]

  8. Sure.... ;) Parents don't die, they just disappear. Some teenagers may WISH this... ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my teaser. And in response to your comment: Oh yes, I plan on getting sucked into the Gentry Series very soon. The Anita Blake series is (according to my girlfriends) less sex & more violence.


  9. Sounds intense. I hope you're enjoying the book. My TT is from The Seventh Witch and can be found here

  10. Good one :)

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on mine :)

  11. Quite the backstory! I'm definitely interested now - great teaser!
