Teaser Tuesday: The Dead Path by Stephen M. Irwin

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!


My teaser this week comes from The Dead Path by Stephen M. Irwin:

“The trees surrounding him were so deep and dark that he could have been a drowned sailor on the cold floor of the sea.  No wind moved the ocean of black branches above him, yet leaves rustled somewhere out of sight.”

What’s your teaser this week?

    I adore the descriptiveness lending itself to create a spooky situation. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-outside-the-ordinary-world.html

    Here is my teaser from The Trophy Bride’s Tale by Cyrilla Barr (page 1):

    I have never seen an execution! I am terrified & tremble uncontrollably now as I stand on the fringes of restless crowd desperately hoping that no one will notice me in my shabby pilgrim’s weeds. At that I saw his face break into a warm smile and I knew I had at last reached safer ground.

    I really love the oceanic metaphor in this teaser! It’s very effective and sets the tone!
