Teaser Tuesdays #16

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!


 
"Slowly, carefully, the darkness formed itself into a tube and snaked down his throat. It was cold and he could feel it spreading throughout his body, its smoky, dark tendrils filling all his crevices - his heart, his lungs, out to the tips of his fingers and down to the heels of his feet."

"The largest of them opened its mouth to reveal long, yellow fangs glistening with saliva. It screamed a high, mewling cry and the other three responded in kind, shaking the forest floor."
