Teaser Tuesday 8/23/11

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!

From Changes: A Novel of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher:

"None of my options were good ones. Getting eaten by a supernaturally resilient centipede-demon would be an impediment to my rescue effort. Getting locked up by the FBI wouldn't be much better, but at least with the feds putting me in a cell, I'd have a chance to walk out of it--unlike the centipedes' stomach. Stomachs." p. 86

If you haven't read a Dresden book yet, and you like Fantasy, modern-day wizards, private eyes, faeries, malignant creatures, butt kicking and smart alecky main characters, there's no better time than now!

May you find your Muse.
