Teaser Tuesday: World After by Susan Ee

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!

World After by Susan Ee.

World After – Skyscape

My sister’s face changes instantly from a blank slate to a growling animal as she snaps at the man. Her razor-grafted teeth flash as she moves, emphasizing the threat.
— Chapter 1

Paige and I are used to being stared at. I would just ignore it while Paige always smiled at the gawkers from her wheelchair. They almost always smiled back. Paige’s charm was hard to resist.
Once upon a time.
— Chapter 2

This series has the main title Penryn and the End of Days and considering the feeling one currently gets while entering the vicinity of any shopping outlet (or just attempting travel, but that might just be me – I have seriously bad karma when it comes to trains) I found this oddly fitting. Not because of the post-apocalyptic scenario, it has not come this far ... I hope. But the contrast of these angels with the angel-stores that are also in high demand at this time of year. I’m not very far into this second book at the moment but I hope that it will pick up a little on the plot side and clear up a few holes I noticed in book one. I think this could be a great scenario as the narration itself is already very good. There are only a few plot issues that could have used as little smoothing in book one, but maybe they’ll be covered in this second book. The beginnig makes me very optimistic that I’ll enjoy this.

This will be my last regular post of 2013 ... I’ll hopefully find the time during the holidays for a recap/best-of list like last year. In the meantime, let me wish you all a very merry Christmas if you celebrate it. Have a great week and please share what you are reading in the comments.
