Teaser Tuesday – The Taking

teasertuesdays31Teaser 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.

The chill that spread through Molly was different from any that she had experienced previously.  It was not a quivery thing localized along the spine or the nape of the neck, did not shiver through her like a vagrant breath of eternity, but lingered.  A coldness seemed to be spawned in the very cavities of her bones, in the red-and-yellow mush of marrow, from which it spread outward to every cell in every extremity.

Okay, so it’s three sentences, but who’s counting?  This is a perfect one for Halloween-time.  What are you reading today?

    I read a Koontz many years ago that still has me avoiding mirrors at night!! I won’t touch his novels now but I have a friend who is not as easily spooked as me who loves Koontz. Great description in that teaser — poetic with all that alliteration.
