Teaser Tuesday (29)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

I'm currently reading The Lightning Thief, book one in the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, for book club. It's our last book before the school year, and I think we chose a good one to go out with. Here's my teaser:




By the time I looked up, the sign was already fading, but I could till make out the hologram of green light, spinning and gleaming. A three-tipped spear: a trident.




Might be *slightly* spoilery, but I feel like a lot of people know more about the story since the movie came out, even just from the trailers. I haven't seen the movie yet either. The book, however, is pretty interesting to start. Lots of action and stuff going on. I can't wait to see how the movie measures up.

Feel free to share your teasers with me. I'd love to see what you're reading!
