•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

I'm just a few chapters in, but I love the writing style in The Marked Son. Dylan, the main character is so wonderfully jaded and I'm at a point where THINGS ARE HAPPENING. I think this one is going to be a perfect October read. Here's an ominous snippet:
Soon, the approaching storm will block out all the light. I scan the area, and just when I'm about to give up and breathe easier, far within the trees there's another pale flicker of movement.
     Someone – or something – is definitely in the woods. ~ pg. 41

Seventeen-year-old Dylan Kennedy always knew something was different about him, but until his mother abandoned him in the middle of Oregon with grandparents he's never met, he had no idea what.

When Dylan sees a girl in white in the woods behind his grandparents' farm, he knows he's seen her before...in his dreams. He's felt her fear. Heard her insistence that only he can save her world from an evil lord who uses magic and fear to feed his greed for power.

Unable to shake the unearthly pull to Kera, Dylan takes her hand. Either he's completely insane or he's about to have the adventure of his life, because where they're going is full of creatures he's only read about in horror stories. Worse, the human blood in his veins has Dylan marked for death...
