Teaser Tuesday: Grave Witch by Kalayna Price

Teaser Tuesday 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.

The first time I encountered Death, I hurled my mother's medical chart at him. As far as impressions went, I blew it, but I was five at the time, so he eventually forgave me. Some days I wished he hadn't -- particularly when we crossed paths on the job.

--From page 1 of GRAVE WITCH by Kalayna Price

And, the obligatory self-adulation:

I tilted my glass again, my bloodseduced mouth already watering for more.

He grabbed my arm, stopping the glass an inch from my mouth. Sweat shone on his lean-muscled wrist, his grip light but steely. "You shouldn't drink that shit."

"Why not? Afraid I'll embarrass you?"

--From page of POISON KISSED, by me :)

Got any cool teasers this week?


  1. What's a book?

    Haven't read any this week or most of last, been head down, butt up in my WIP.

    I do remember where my bookshelves are so I'll wander over and pick out one.

    Here goes...

    "No one owns me," he hissed, outrage making him jerk at his manacles. To her credit, the serene beauty did not even flinch.
    "Perhaps not your spirit," she acquiesced softly, "but so long as you are on this world, I own you. Your body is my property and your fate is mine for the choosing..."

  9. I'll admit, I'm still detoxing from Poison Kissed. Nothing is holding my attention at the moment, so I used a gag gift from a friend.

    "Such peccadilloes go with the territory; we vampires are an impulsive, instinctive, libidinal, grandiose, and sensationalistic lot. Sometimes, as they say, we "slip up."

    (Is it August yet?)

  10. Nice ones! I love Lords of the Underworld :) but I haven't read Gideon's book yet. Looks cool :) And 'The Monstrumologist' is such a cool title :)

    August yet? Why, no, it isn't :) thank god. I've only just recovered from last year's mayhem... glad you enjoyed PK, Hailey! When ARCs come for the next, we'll see what we can do...

  11. You would hear my squeeing from your front door. In fact, if you listen closely, there's a good chance you'll hear pre-squeeing now. :)
