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 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!

So this is more like a paragraph than two sentences, but I just couldn't leave anything out. 
 "The lifeless eyes of the curious shark moseyed past the window, spelling my doom. As I sat in my cell on an uncomfortable rock, I kicked myself again for allowing Colin to trick me into confessing. If I'd only pretended I didn't know a thing, they'd be the ones rotting in jail, not me. My life was in King Phaleon's hands now"
Everblue, pg. 170
Brenda Pandos


I want to thank Brenda Pandos for sending me a beautiful, inscribed copy of her book!
