Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday August 20th 2013

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

~Grab your current read
~Open to a random page
~Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away 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!

(will be starting after I finish my review for Delirium)

by Samantha Durante 

Hundreds of acid voices swarmed about her, their derisive gibes poking at her ears as she shuffled her way through the crowd.  Stumbling over a loose rock, she caught herself, steadying her breath as it dawned on her that they’d all been gathered here for one purpose: to kill her.

She couldn't see where they were taking her with the thick canvas bag slung over her head, and even if she managed to shirk the binds holding her wrists, she doubted she’d have anywhere to run.  The rebels couldn't possibly risk a rescue; there were just too many people.  And with this damn bag over her head, her allies probably didn't even realize it was her.

Resigned, she did her best to hold her head high through the mob’s suffocating contempt, fighting the tug of the rope around her neck that propelled her ever forward.  She knew he was enjoying this, having her on a leash.  After all they’d done to her, everything they’d put her through, it was this one last indignity that stung the most.  She’d almost rather die than suffer their abuse again.  Almost.
