This week I'm reading The Iron Queen, the 3rd book in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. Here's a teaser for you:

Of course, being in a cemetery, a Grim might also be a grinning skeleton in a black cowl, gliding down the aisles with a scythe in hand. I shivered and cursed my overactive imagination. So help me, it didn't matter if Ash was here or not, if I saw that coming, people on the other side of the city would hear me scream.

I think my favourite thing about this quote is that, even though they're in a scary cemetery with who-knows what, there's still some minor humour to lighten the mood for the reader. Julie has a good writing style like that.

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


  1. Great teaser! I really want to start this series soon and I am so awful for not having read it yet! Here is my teaser for Alice in Zombieland!

  2. Great teaser. I love the exaggeration / hyperbole -- "people on the other side of the city would hear me scream."

  3. Great teaser. I liked that series and especially Ash!

  4. I have this series I just have to find the time to read it. Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

  5. Sigh, I am so super behind on these, thanks for stopping by my teaser!
