#TeaserTuesday ~ TORN (Fire Born 2) #YA #UF

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday.

Today I’m sharing a sample from TORN, the second installment in the

Fire Born Trilogy.

 

This sample is taken from near the beginning of the book:

The stab of feathers bites across my shoulder blades. A constant crash of wind and waves pounds in my ears, and the harsh odor of burnt wood and plaster overwhelms my senses. Running my fingers along rough fabric underneath my body, tufts of material come loose in my hand.

“Looky, looky. She wakes.” A woman’s voice rebounds, as if it’s closing in on me. “Come to see the ruin?”

With fists clenched , my sleepy-eyed gaze roves across darkened, soot-mottled walls. “Where am I?” The slur in my voice doesn’t surprise me—I’ve become accustomed to what it must feel like to be hit by a tranquilizer dart.

“Where are you? Where am I? It seems a redundant question. You are here. I am here.” She snickers.

Shading my eyes with my hand, my gaze travels up a staircase banister, on toward the highest point of the ceiling far above my head. Attached to the wall like a spider, skin hanging from her bones, a woman peers down. From her perch, she smiles, a blackened-toothed grin spreading slowly over her wide, lopsided mouth.

“Clever, I see.” She nods. “Smart is good—clever is better.”

#Teaser Tuesday ~ TORN (Fire Born 2) By Laney McMann

Today on the blog, I’m sharing the first teaser from TORN, the second book in the Fire Born Novels trilogy.

This excerpt is taken from a random spot in the book. 😉

Birds scuttled over the treetops as Justice and I continued through the forest, dusk settling around us.

“We’re walking in circles again,” he said, his steps slowing. “There’s no way we’re going to find the Merrows. And it’s getting dark.”

“I doubt they’d help, anyway. They always hated me.” The memory of Max and me running down the beach as kids, laughing, flew through my head, Max complaining that he didn’t want to see the water spirits. I’d replayed it over and over again for years, driving myself crazy, but it remained one of the only memories I’d kept after my mother washed me of them.

“What’s up with you?”

“I—nothing.” I wrapped my hand around the eternity bracelets and squeezed.
