Teaser Tuesdays #15

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!

The Painted Man a.k.a. The Warded Man 
by Peter V. Brett

"His heart pounding and his discovery forgotten, Arlen moved through the ruins with incredible speed and alacrity, vaulting fallen pillars and crumbled rock while dodging right and left around the solidifying corelings. Demons needed a moment to get their bearings on the surface, and Arlen took full advantage of that as he sprinted towards his circle." 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

"Trying not to think about it, Thomas closed his eyes for a moment and concentrated on remaining still and quiet. The creature kept coming."


  1. 'Creatures' and demons, eh? Sounds perilous! And exciting. Great teasers!

    If you'd like, you can check out mine here.

  2. Ooo the Maze Runner sounds real good!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday :)

  3. Wow, both of those sound like really sticky situations. Excellent teasers!
    Here's mine.

  4. I like the Maze Runner teaser!

  5. These are both intriguing! Great teasers. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  6. Both teasers sound good. I have The Maze Runner on my TBR stack somewhere.

    My Tuesday Teaser is Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson.

  7. I have been curious about The Maze Runner for awhile. I hope you are enjoying both books. Interesting teasers you picked!

  8. Great teasers! I haven't read the Peter Brett book (yet), but I liked The Maze Runner. :)
