Teaser Tuesday: Let the Wind Rise by Shannon Messenger

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
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!

Let the Wind Rise by Shannon Messenger.

Let the Wind Rise – Simon Pulse

I definitely hate myself.
But I’m going to fix this—all of it.
I have a plan.
— Chapter 1

Change is in the air—I can feel it as clearly as I can hear the brave melodies of the untainted drafts slipping through the cracks of Raiden’s supposedly impenetrable fortress.
A hum building to a crescendo.
The wind starting to rise.
— Chapter 2

Final book in the Sky Fall trilogy where I’ll admit to not being blown away (forgive the pun) by the second book. It was nice enough and held my interest until the end so that I’m now reading the last book, but the first was infinitely better. I’m not too far into the third book right now, but the beginning is very promising and it seems that the language melody I loved so much in book one and missed in book two is back. Even if all alarms are ringing at the notion of the main guy character fixing all of it by having a plan.

Are there any phrases a main character in a book has to say to make you simultaneously roll your eyes and anticipate a worthwhile book? Share your trigger sentences and teasers in the comments.

Great choice for the teaser. It builds and builds.

I haven't heard of this series before. I think the second book let-down happens a lot in series. My YA teaser this week comes from Vicarious by Paula Stokes. Happy reading!
