Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
4. 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!)
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Pan’s jaw dropped. Is this what trusting in her inner sight – in herself – was really like? It was all so scary and silly, confusing and exhilarating and magical, she didn’t know what to think, except… how beautiful the world suddenly was.
– page 166, Blood Feud (The Saga of Pandora Zwieback 1) by Steven A. Roman
Sixteen-year-old Goth girl Pandora Zwieback has a major problem: she’s just discovered that her New York City hometown is the stalking ground for every monster and ghoul out to raise a little hell (literally!) . . . BUT she’s apparently the only one who can see them. That means she can’t tell her friends or family about the dangers around them–not unless she wants to spend the rest of her life locked up in a psychiatric ward. But before Pan has a chance to make sense of her increasingly weird life, she finds herself in the middle of a war among rival vampire clans. Elegant Gothic Lolitas from Japan on one side, silk-suited London vamps on the other, leather-clad hunters from Eastern Europe in the middle, and all after the same prize: a mysterious crate recently delivered to the horror-themed museum owned by Pan’s father. What is the terrifying secret of Item #179? How do its contents tie into an incident from the blood-drenched past of Pan’s new friend, a 400-year-old, shape-shifting monster hunter named Annie? And, more important, will Pan survive long enough to get any answers?
What I think of it so far:
I’m about half way through now and I am loving it! Just the right balance of reality and supernatural. And I love Pandora – she’s so quirky and, well, human! I can hardly wait to see how this one pans out. (Did you see what I did there? Pan? I’m so sorry, i just couldn’t resist the pan pun!)
