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!)
This week I chose House Rules by Chloe Neill from my TBR mountain. This is the latest book in her Chicagoland Vampires series. Here is the description:
In a city full of vampires, trouble never sleeps.Teaser:
At the tender age of twenty-seven, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she’s become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she’ll see her mettle—and her metal—tested like never before.
It started with two . . . Two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago’s vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.
"Trouble?" Ethan asked, sparing me a glance.
"Nothing I can't handle," I said, tucking the phone away again. I hoped it was true.
One crisis at a time, I told myself.
I told myself that a lot. Unfortunately, our world rarely worked that way.
