Teaser Tuesday - Entice + My WIP (11/23/10)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
Adding a teaser from your WIP (Tuesday Teaser) is a twist that Melissa from i swim for oceans started and I'm borrowing the idea

The Rules:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) or so “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 week's teaser comes from Entice (Need, #3) by Carrie Jones (This is the ARC version, and all lines, cover image, etc. are subject to change):
"He had an instant to choose my life or his and he chose mine to save. That's how I know that pixies can be good. I have seen it with my own eyes". ~ pg. 64

Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that’s not quite how things have worked out.

For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he’s been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it’s taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t just turned… She’s Astley’s queen.

*Description taken from Goodreads


 And another teaser from my WIP (which I've changed dramatically, but for the best):
“How about, for just a little while, we forget the past and everything that’s happened? Let’s smile and laugh and have fun. Let’s be us again, Austin,” Rachel says, pulling us to a stop...“Us, minus one?” No matter how hard I try, Sam always seems to move to the forefront of all my thoughts. Never will I be able to smile without the guilt of knowing he won’t.

“No,” Rachel says, her smile growing ever so slightly. “Just us.”

Thanks for all the kind comments about my teaser. They make me feel even better about my WIP.

And as for Entice, I'm actually finished it recently and while it wasn't as good as the others, it's still a nice installment in the series. My review should be up in a week or so.
