Teaser Tuesday: Talisman of El

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

To participate, just do the following:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. (I always cheat and use more than 2!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser this week is from Talisman of El by Alecia Stone:
An ear-piercing scream ripped through the building. Derkein froze, his eyes the only things that moved. His gaze fixed on his father, who was rummaging through his bag. He took out a black pistol and turned to Derkein, a tortured expression on his face as he placed the weapon in his son's trembling hand.


  1. Wow, what an intense teaser! I haven't heard of this book but it sounds like something I would enjoy. This week my teasers are from Dark Destiny by M. J. Putney and First Do No Evil by Carey Baldwin. Happy reading!

  2. Great teaser. The book cover reminds me of the Neverending story a little.

    Here's my teaser:

  3. It's interesting that the father would hand the weapon over to his son, rather than keep it himself! Definitely an intense situation.
    My Teaser is from LEAVING SERENITY.
