Teaser Tuesday – 19th April 2016



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
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!

This is my choice of the day:
Outriders – Book 1 of the Outriders series by Jay Posey
37%: Lincoln nodded and walked over to the booth, doing his best impression of the weary outriderstraveller, which fortunately wasn’t too tough since he’d been awake for at least thirty-two hours straight. He’d been stuck in a middle seat on the trip up between an overweight narcoleptic who snored and a skinny author who wanted to talk about is books the whole time. Lincoln would gladly have traded the author for the snoring man’s twin brother.

BLURB: A daring hostage rescue leads to the discovery of an imminent terrorist attack. Thanks to the Outriders, thousands of lives are saved. Until they aren’t. Despite the intelligence and the warnings provided by the unit, the terrorist attack goes off unhindered. What was supposed to be a triumph becomes a tragedy, and a ‘mission completed’ completely unravels. And when they learn the reasons why, the Outriders find themselves tasked with stopping a war before it can ever start. A dangerously cunning woman who most assuredly should be dead has seemingly returned. And her plans aren’t just devastating, they might be unstoppable. How do you defeat a hidden enemy when you can t let them know they’ve been discovered? You send in the Outriders.

This military science fiction caper starts with a bang and hasn’t let up since. I’m thoroughly engrossed and really enjoying not completely knowing what is going on as the strong characters and dual narrative keep the tension levels high. I just hope it continues as it started out…
