Teaser Tuesday 8/30/11

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 Stormwalker, by Allyson James:

"The skinwalker screamed as lightning struck his body. He convulsed with it, the forces of my magic and the one my mother had infused him with tearing him apart." P. 20

From the back:

Janet Begay is a Stormwalker, capable of wielding the raw elemental power of nature's tempests--a power that threatens to overwhelm her. Only her lover, Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker, is able to siphon off her excess energy and calm the storm raging within her--even as their passion reaches unimaginable heights of ecstacy.

Janet and Mick have come to the desert town of Magellan to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the police chief's daughter. The barren land around it is full of vortexes, the gateways that connect the human world with the mystical realm of Beneath, and after encountering skinwalkers and receiving hints from a shape-shifting coyote and a smart-ass magic mirror, Janet fears that her own powerful, scary-as-hell mother is involved.

She's also uncertain about Mick. He can wield fire and never get burned, and Janet can't seem to touch him with her storm powers. But Janet must trust him, since she and Mick find themselves venturing where no human can survive along--and only together can they overcome the greatest danger they've ever faced.

May you find your Muse.

Such an interesting teaser, one of the best books I've learned about on TT in a while!

Looks like a book I'll have to keep an eye out for - right up my alley. Great teaser - and I love the idea of adding in the back jacket cover to the post as well - tells a bit more about the book.

Valentina, the short story I read from this series was intense, and so far the pacing is good on this novel, too.

TBM, it is, so far.

Jo, hi!

Greta, glad it was a good one!

Sidne, good so far!

Rachel, thanks!

Jennifer, I would definitely say it was painful!

Julie, oh yes, the list. As close to infinity as possible.

Golden Eagle, it's different, which I definitely like.

Becca, it is!

Trisha, he deserves it!

Rachel, thanks, I will!

Keisha, that's awesome to hear! I hope you enjoy it if you read it.

Elena, I think I'm going to keep doing that (adding the jacket). We will see if I remember to next week ;-p

TF, the book itself is definitely also full of action right from the start.
