Teaser Tuesdays (34): Elemental by Emily White

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Just because Ella can burn someone to the ground with her mind doesn't mean she should. 
But she wants to. 
For ten years—ever since she was a small child—Ella has been held prisoner on an interstellar starship. Now that she has escaped, she needs answers.
Who is she? Why was she taken? And who is the boy with the beautiful green eyes who haunts her memories?
Is Ella the prophesied Destructor… or will she be the one who's destroyed? 

I'd really killed her. There was no avoiding that reality. Her burned and wasted body stood as evidence to the fact that I was a monster. Destructor--that's what I'd said in the back room of the shop. That truth was more evident now than it'd ever be.

Be sure to come back tomorrow (4/25) when the Elemental Blog Tour stops by Word Spelunking with my review, an interview with Emily White and an ARC and signed bookmarks giveaway!

Wow. What an interesting character, and how scary it must be for her to think she's a Destructor. You chose a great teaser. Thanks, too, for including a synopsis.
My teaser is from A DIFFERENT KIND OF FOREVER: Sandy's Teaser

Firstly, I love that cupcake in your header.

This sounds like a fascinating character, especially the conflict of wanting to burn people when she knows she shouldn't.

An intriguing teaser.

Pamela said...

Wow, sounds like she's becoming something she fears. I feel like there'll be a twist somewhere and she'll turn out not to be the "prophesied Destructor".

Feel free to check out my teaser here.
