Welcome to another fabulous Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! To join the fun all you need to do is share two sentences from your current read. Make sure you don’t share spoilers.
This week we’re sharing a little tease from Dark Star by Bethany Frenette. It’s a really exciting read and I just love Audrey. The release date is October 23rd so mark you calendar and snag a copy before they’re gone.
Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she’s lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human–something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile.
Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn’t fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers–livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin.
To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person’s memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers’ next move. But Leon, her mother’s bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won’t let Audrey out of his sight.
When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything–and everyone–she loves.
Time for the tease!
“I’m waiting,” she said, opening one eye to peek at me.
“Quiet, The mysteries of the universe must not be rushed,” I told her, but I finished my shuffling and began to deal.
What mysteries will your teaser reveal?
