Teaser Tuesday ~ 8/27/13

This is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

To participate you:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
(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!

There can be no other book to choose from today! No, the release of Origin requires that my teaser today is from Origin!

Origin (Lux, #4) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?

Now the reeds whipped at my jeans and dandelions carpeted the grass.  Kat had a thing for dandelions.  She couldn't keep her fingers off them when we'd been training with the onyx.  From the moment those yellow weeds started poking through the ground, she'd snap them up and pop their heads off.

A wry grin tugged at my lips as I skidded to a stop in front of the windowless door.  

Demented Kitten. (Kindle location 690)

Okay, this just cracked me up and I had to share the Demented Kitten quote.  Daemon is pretty upset at this point in the story and it was nice for him to have something to smile about.

What about you?  Have a teaser for me?  Leave me a comment.
