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!
This week’s teaser is from an old favourite of mine that I decided to re-read, just because I can. It’s a vampire romance of the stand-alone variety. Written back in 1990, I discovered it a couple of years ago during my course at University and fell in love with it. The Silver Kiss is Annette Curtis Klausse’s début novel, preceding her more famous novel Blood and Chocolate, which was later made into a movie.
Like a shadow he could only live on the edge of people’s lives, never touched or touching except to bring a cold shiver like a cloud over the sun, like a shroud over the corpse. The only time he touched, it was in death, yet that was the only thing that proved he existed at all.
