Teaser Tuesday: Partials by Dan Wells

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • 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!  

Partials by Dan Wells

Partials - Balzer + Bray

The average lifespan of a human child, in the time since the Break, was fifty-six hours.
They didn’t even name them anymore.
-- Chapter 1

“‘Death be not proud,’” said Marcus, “‘though some have called thee mighty and dreadful.’” He paused, thinking. “I’m totally butchering this.”
-- Chapter 5

I was in need of something a little gritty and un-fluffy and I think I definitely picked up the right books for that. Piece of advise: Don’t read while eating, shortly before or after eating unless you have a strong stomach.

Happy May Day, everyone. What are you reading?
