Teaser Tuesday: Nightlife


Just grab your current read, open to a random page, and share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

What was different was that he looked to be made of a convolution of fleshy cords knotted and wrapped around themselves, a mass of twisted tendrils given shape and form. Shape, form, and a hideously twitching life.
"I don't remember that in your goddamn mythology book," I gritted in a low tone to Niko.

from chapter 8 of Nightlife by Rob Thurman

Finally done exams so I should be able to get back to mass reading and hopefully more posts soon =)

This week's teaser is from a book I'm very conflicted about in terms of rating. On the one hand, the dialogue leaves much to be desired. On the other hand, the story is rather original and, as the quote shows, the author gives some very imaginative twists to different mythical beings (trolls in this case). I'll wait until I get to the end of the book before I make any final judgements though.
