Teaser Tuesday (31)

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!

This week I'm reading Jennifer L. Armentrout's debut novel, Half-Blood. I read the prequel, Daimon, over the summer and thought it was a great introduction to the series. Here's my teaser this week:

The worst possible thing happened. A wall of flames flew up in front of me, burning through benches and shooting at least eight feet into the air. It was real. No illusion. The heat blew back at me and the fire crackled, eating through the walls.

In front of me, he walked right through the flames, looking every bit like a daimon hunter should.

I hope that's intense enough for you. Can you believe this action happens in the first chapter? Yeah, it's a pretty explosive start. I'm really enjoying it so far! Make sure to check out my review of the prequel, Daimon, if you haven't yet.

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