Teaser Tuesday: Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead

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!

Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead.

Silver Shadows – Razorbill

“Evil and deception are not our ways,” the voice said. “We relish in light and honesty.”
Liars, liars, I thought.
— Chapter 1

“The people I know don’t casually eat shrimp off their best china in one hand while drinking champagne in the other.”
“Technically,” I said, “those are prawns, not shrimp, and I’m sure that’s actually her mother’s second-best china.”
— Chapter 6



Right now I have no idea how this is going to end well ... supposedly that’s the idea of a seemingly hopeless situation. The author does this pretty well, I must say. As much as I like Adrian, but I don’t particularly like his approach to dealing with the situation. It fits the character, but if he was my friend there would already have been an intervention. Maybe not the best idea with a vampire, but who knows. We’ll see how they get Sydney out of there. Hopefully soon. And then deal with the lying liars who lie. Also hopefully.

Which character from a book would you like to be friends with? Share (imaginary) friends and your teasers in the comments!

Great teasers. I know what you mean about characters you want to change. There were times when I wanted to wollop Reid from my teaser this week. Here it is

Although Katniss is not the friendly type, I would certainly want to be BFF's with her! I thought the teaser from chapter 1 was an excellent one; I'm curious as to who is speaking :P

Here is my TT The Kite Runner

I haven't heard of this book by Mead... might have to go look that one up!

Who from a book would I like to be friends with? You mean they're not my friends already? :P Okay, I'd choose Fitz from the Farseer books by Robin Hobb. If only so I could occasionally smack some sense into him!

I'm not much into vampires, but this sounds intriguing.
My Teaser is from WHERE OR WHEN.

Hah, the second teaser made me chuckle. I've only read one of her books before, but from what I gather, she seems to write with plenty of snark. Thanks for sharing!
My Teaser.
