Teaser Tuesday - 2/26/13

Woo-hoo, new Partials book! Also, this marks the beginning of a busy reading period for me. A bunch of my favorite authors have new books coming out in March, so I'll be busy going broke while I try to keep up with them. Because who knows what will happen if I don't read them the very second they come out.

I put the blurb from Partials because the one for Fragments is full of spoilers.

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.

Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.

The rules for Teaser Tuesday are:

  • 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 the teaser:

Another day of research turned up nothing she could use, and in a fit of petulance she snarled and threw the last folder out the broken window; as soon as she threw it she berated herself for doing something to attract the attention of anyone else who might be prowling the city. The odds were against it, of course, but that didn't make it smart to tempt fate.


  1. Hmm... sounds pretty awesome!

    I grabbed the nearest book I had, which was THE SWEET,TERRIBLE, GLORIOUS YEAR I TRULY, COMPLETELY LOST IT. by Lisa Shanahan

    Little teaser: When Debbie told Dad she was marrying Brian, her new boyfriend of the month, Dad went ballistic.

    "Not Brian!" He leapt from his chair. "Anyboday but Brian. I'd prefer that bloke who stole and hocked my tennis trophies...what was his name?"

    "His name was Bruce, Dad," said Debbie with a sniff. "And he didn't steal your tennis trophies. You gave them away to St. Vinnie's."

  2. Ooo. Love the cover and the excerpt, too. Another for the TBR list... :)
