Teaser Tuesday #20 ... FEVER Style

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and here's how you play..

Grab your current read and open to a random page. Share a couple of “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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.


Seeing how I've dedicated my blog to the Fever series until January the 18th, I thought I'd stick with the theme and chose a teaser from one of the books. There were so many to choose from and then it hit me ... the perfect teaser.... those few sentences that have driven fans CRAZY - the ones right at the end of Dreamfever (book four)





"No!" I screamed.
I'd thought I'd lost everything.
I hadn't.
I stared at the person who lay dead on the floor of the forest.
The person I'd helped kill.
Now I'd lost everything.
 
 


   
My fellow Fever Fanatics - was I the only one who screamed at the end and cried when she saw that's where the story ended? What a way to leave us all hanging for a year!! 


Keep coming by for your daily dose of the
FEVER and remember only one week
more until Shadowfever!!

"Did you know that Dougal wants us to marry?" I demanded bluntly... "But surely," I said, a young man like yourself; I mean, isn't there anyone else you're, ah, interested in?"

He looked blank a moment, then understanding dawned. "Oh, am I promised? I'm no much of a prospect for a girl..."

I had one last try. "Does it bother you that I am not a virgin?" He hesitated a moment before answering.

"Well, no," he said slowly, "so long as it doesna bother you that I am... Reckon one of us should know what they are doing," he said.

The door closed softly behind him; clearly the courtship was over.

WORST. CLIFF. HANGER. EVER. I couldn't think about anything else for months!
Really nice TT, and appropriate for the upcomoing book.

Here is my TT!

Madeleine said...

Way to end a book! :D

Majanka said...

Great teaser! I love the fever series, heard so much about them.

Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

I was so very pissed when I read those last sentences! Now my mind is reeling... who could it be?

Mine is from the Fever Series this week too, Faefever.

I also have a contest going on for the Moontide and Magic Rise Series.

Happy Tuesday! Miranda

Kim @ The Caffeinated Diva said...

jlshall said...

Well, obviously I have some homework to do. I've never heard of this book or author, but I seem to be the only one who hasn't. Great teaser!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Gripping! Thanks for sharing...

Here's mine:

Eleri Stone said...

Oh, now that was just cruel. And you didn't even say if you think it was Barrons or not! Can't wait for Shadowfever. I've been counting down the days.

Book Bird Dog said...

Quite a cliff hanger! Good tease.

Belinda said...

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Krista - I think you sold me :) Now I just need to find the time to squeeze them in!

Stephanie - Tell me about it! Each time I've read it I carry this frantic feeling around because who else could it be but someone we love! Its torture!!

Kathy - Oh you are very lucky if you're just starting the series because the final book is released next week. I've had this cliffhanger unanswered for a YEAR!! LOL

Gina - Maybe, schmaybe LOL do it!! It's an amazing series :)

Jessica - Amen!!

Madeline - I know. The author is the Queen of cliffhangers!

Majanka - Me too *grins*

Belinda said...

Zephyr - I was like "Noooooooo please say there's more!!!" The more I've thought about it, the more I'm worried about who it was ARGGHHH!!

Kim - Yep. That's how she ended the book. Naughty author! I'd def recommend reading them ASAP

Mlisame - I def would. It's an incredible UF series that 100% addicting!

Jlshall - I love it so yeah check it out!

Laurell - no problem!!

Eleri - I'm too scared to think it's Barrons. I don't think it's him because why would Ryodan attack him? He'd know who it was. Also KMM would have angry mobs hunting her down. Don't you know that Barrons is meant to have this might change of heart, marry Mac and they live happily ever after in suburban bliss with a white picket fence, 2.5 kids and a golden retriver called Fido? ROFL

Book Bird - yeah its torture!

Looks like there is a strong discussion going on about the Fever series :) I haven't read them yet, just waiting for a good weekend to come by so I can do them one after the other.
