Teaser Tuesday: Deathwish by Rob Thurman

WIthout further ado, welcome to Teaser Tuesday.

This is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading:

1) Grab your current read.
2) Open to a random page
3) Share at least two 'teaser' sentences from that page -- no spoilers, please!
4) share the title and author so others can add it to their TBR if they like the teasers.

"Being wise is a burden." There was sympathy in my voice that I didn't bother to hide.

"Being a smart-ass moron is no cakewalk either," Cal retorted.

"So true," I offered dryly. "Yet you struggle on."

--From page 37 of DEATHWISH by Rob Thurman

And, the obligatory self-pimpage :)

Kane smiles, childlike, his black eyes swirling green. "You looked, didn't you? I warned you."

Indigo clenches steely teeth in denial. Maybe he's peeked into the glass, drawn by the shimmering silver surface. Wouldn't be the first time. He's a fairy. he likes shiny things. So what? That was days ago. Nothing's happened. Has it?

--From page 13 of SHADOWGLASS, by me :)

Hope you enjoyed today's teasers. Got any of your own?


  1. Both teasers sound good. I have been meaning to try something by Rob Thurman for a while and the teaser did nothing to dissuade me. I have two this week. My YA teaser comes from Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers and my adult teaser comes from Side Jobs by Jim Butcher. Happy reading!

  2. Love both teasers^^
    thx for sharing.

    here are my teasers: http://semicrazed.blogspot.com/2010/12/teaser-tuesday-10.html


  3. Good teaser. I keep hearing about Rob Thurman, but haven't yet picked up one of his books. What are your thoughts?

  4. LOL...such a pimper! Great teasers. You know, I read the first couple books of Thurman's series...and for some reason, I couldn't get into it. I don't know if it is because of the male protaginist or that it was written by a man. I am not sexist...it's jsut for some reason, In most cases, I find the female characters easier to relate to and live vicariously through...meh, I probably am not making sense...anyhoo...I hope that you are enjoying your book. Wanna see what my Teaser for Tuesday is?

  5. Here is my teaser from Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz (Page vii):

    I used to be the kind of guy that would have no problem reading Playboy or Hustler on an airplane, but that me in "the before," and nearly everything has changed since that time in my life a little over a year ago.

    This is not a coming of age story.

    If that's what you're wanting then I suggest you put this down and read something else: something with a happy ending. Like Penthouse.

    Or: the funny pages.

    This is me giving you your official warning.

    Because where this goes, you might not be ready for.

  6. YEAY! Teaser Tuesday!!!!!!! Here is mine! It is the day when my to-read list just can't stop growing!!!

  7. Oh more new reads for my big long list, thanks for the self pimping found more books to enjoy ;)

    My Tuesday Teaser

  8. Ooh, some lovely teasers :) thanks for dropping by, everyone.

    I love Rob Thurman's Cal And Niko series! It's kinda like Supernatural. Urban fantasy, no romance, male protags who hunt monsters. And I like her new series, starting with CHIMERA, too. Again with 2 male protags -- she's the queen of bromance :)

    (Rob(yn) Thurman is a woman. She just writes a lot of male protags...)
