Teaser Tuesday



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!



 Hexult by Perry Aylen
 Publication Date: May 12, 2011
Find it at Goodreads!
 
 
 "Aulf gingerly pulled open the scorched door and peered cautiously inside. A tumble of junk and broken wood lay scattered across the floor, but under piles of blankets he could clearly discern two bodies. It was difficult to make out much beneath the heaped coverings, but they looked as if they might be children, and they were either asleep or dead. Aulf and Ingar clambered in."
 pg. 2



When the seas rose and the world froze, much knowledge was lost.

Mysterious twins, Jacob and Elya, shipwrecked in Hexult, discover their superior understanding of science is mistaken for magic by the superstitious islanders.

With the aid of Aulf the mailman and his fiery crewmate, Ingar, the twins must overcome terrible tragedy and danger, to save their reputations and their lives.

(From Goodreads) 


Pretty excited about Hexult. This the first book I was ever asked to review, so I guess it will always be close to my heart. At least I hope! Anyways, I do love a good disaster book, and movie for that matter, and I am sooooo looking forward to this read!
Make sure to look for the review and my very first author interview. Yay!

 

Thoroughly teased? How about a teaser for me??

Sounds like an interesting opening. I hate child deaths. I have a harder time reading about child violence since I had my own
