Teaser Tuesday - 5/15/12

This week I'm re-reading Jennifer Lynn Barnes' Trial by Fire, in preparation for the release of the third book in the series, Taken by Storm, which comes out at the end of the month. Just a warning, the blurb for this book spoils the end of the first book (Raised by Wolves), so read at your own risk (the teaser won't spoil anything from either book).

There can only be one alpha.

Bryn is finally settling into her position as alpha of the Cedar Ridge Pack - or at least, her own version of what it means to be alpha when you're a human leading a band of werewolves. Then she finds a teenage boy bleeding on her front porch. Before collapsing, he tells her his name is Lucas, he's a Were, and Bryn's protection is his only hope.

But Lucas isn't part of Bryn's pack, and she has no right to claim another alpha's Were. With threats - old and new - looming, and danger closing in from all sides, Bryn will have to accept what her guardian Callum knew all along. To be alpha, she will have to give in to her own animal instincts and become less human. And, she's going to have to do it alone.

Bryn faces both the costs, and the rewards, of love and loyalty, in this thrilling sequel to Raised by Wolves.

The rules of Teaser Tuesday:

  • 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!
  • Then hit up Should Be Reading to add your link.

And here's the teaser:

We belonged at home, not out in the open where a threat could waltz up to us at lunchtime and calmly issue ultimatums we weren't at liberty to respond to.

It was a miracle that none of the Weres had lost their grip and Shifted.

  3. Man, it's been way too long since I stopped by over here. I'd grab my Kindle and pick two lines from American Gods, but it's MIA right now.

  4. Hey! I've given you an award over at my blog! http://www.lifeisgood-forever21.blogspot.com/2012/05/kreative-blogger-award.html

  5. Oops... well, I should have read Alyssa's post more closely... I'm passing on the award which she gave to me, at the same time as also giving it to you! Epic fail. Never mind, I like listing the different people who have given me an award under its picture!

  6. Interesting book. I hadn't heard of it until now. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for the heads up on this book!

  8. Sounds like an interesting book Tobi. I've never heard of a werewolf clan with a caste system.
    PS. I sent you a Versatile Blogger Award!
