Teaser Tuesday ~ More than Conquerors

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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!

She was just drifting off when she heard it-a nearly indistinguishable but sharp crackling noise from somewhere outside, as if someone had stepped on a branch or a twig...She didn't have to look outside to know that someone was there, watching and waiting. For what? she had no idea, but she sensed it had to do with her.

p. 80 & 81, More than Conquerors by Kathi Macias

I really enjoyed this book and you chose an excellent teaser from this book.

Liz said...

That's a great one!

Mine is a thriller, "The Deadfall Project," by Brett James (a movie writer and director, so you know he knows how to spin a yarn). A bomb has been planted and an ex CIA guy has to come out of retirement to defuse (hahahaha) the situation. You get the behind-the-scenes world of a John LeCarre book, but also plenty of Ludlum-style action as well.

Here's the teaser:
]]His instructions had strictly forbidden him to bring anything not provided by his contact, but the flashlight looked useful so he brought it anyway. Allah favors the prepared.]]
