Teaser Tuesday (11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “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!

I haven't done a TT in quite a while - it may be due to laziness - but I've recently read this book that I just had to share.

By Cole Gibsen
My Teaser

  As it had in the mall parking lot, a calm focus flooded through me and pushed the confusion from my mind.

 This one is inexperienced with a blade,  the voice whispered. It won’t take much to bring him down.

I felt the unfamiliar smile return to my lips—this was going to be fun. I dodged the outstretched blade inches before my skin was to be torn apart by sharpened metal.

Spinning  behind  the  first  attacker,  I  ducked  low  to  ground, kicked my leg, and swept his feet out from under him. He landed on his back and groaned.

The next attacker circled me, his eyes darting nervously back and forth between me and his fallen comrade.

His body was rigid as he waited for an opportunity to move in.

This one is looking for a hole in our defense. We mustn’t give him one.

“Sounds good to me,” I whispered.

The attacker hesitated.

I straightened my stance. “Yeah that’s right, I’m talking to myself! What of it?”

I was deliberating between a fight scene and a romantic scene but decided against the romantic one because this book is more on Rileigh discovering her inner samurai. It focuses a lot on the love story between Rileigh and Kim and also them in their past lives, but I really liked ALL of the fight scenes. It's a little long, but well, I couldn't find any shorter ones that were nice.:/

This teaser also shows how snarky and kickass our heroine is. Haha. KATANA releases in March this year, so look out for it!

What's the teaser that you want to share this week? Leave them or your links in the comments so I can check them out! :)
