Teaser Tuesday: Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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!

Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Sentinel – Spencer Hill Press

I really wanted to, because for him I’d do anything. Fight a horde of half-blood daimons? There. Tangle with ticked-off furies? Sign me up. Break a dozen or so rules for one forbidden kiss? Done. Open my eyes? Apparently that was asking too much.
— Chapter 1

I started to wave the scissors but decided I’d look pretty psychotic doing so. “I kind of don’t want to look like a weed whacker got hold of my head before meeting a bunch of people.”
— Chapter 6

The books of Jennifer L. Armentrout have quite a few qualities about them. One clearly is that you can open them on almost any page and find scenes that are entertaining yet also easily convey the atmosphere, characteristics of the protagonists, and overall situation. I really like her books for the lightheartedness in combination with tough action scenes and general greatness. I love nearly anything related to ancient myths so that works out neat for this series, but she makes it work with all of her books. Looking for quick fun reads that are well thought out and offer surprising takes on mythology and fun references to popular culture? You got it. Not saying much about this book since it’s the fifth and – I think – last in this series. Just this: how often do you get antagonists that you hate to hate? Even though I’m most decidedly Team Aiden.

Do you have a go-to author for fun/action books to pick you up? Let’s hear about them in the comments and share your teasers with us!
