Teaser Tuesday #4



Today I'm going to once again participate in a meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading : Teaser Tuesday! What must be done is:
*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!

Legend of the Chosen (Destiny's Kingdom #1)This weeks teaser comes from Legend of the Chosen by Jennifer Selzer and Daniel Huber:

In the beginning the gods created evil
Left alone it grew vengeful
Angry, it sought to destroy all of existence
The Bethel galaxy is all that remains.

Bethel, the charmed central planet of the galaxy is on the brink of the year’s most anticipated event: the celebrated Twilight Bloom. Quade Decairus has no reason to believe that this year will be any different than those in the past: food and music, friends and the good cheer of those he loves the most. So why has he been plagued with nightmares of the end of his world coming on this very night?
Prophecies masked as legends. Impossible visions, bringing universal destruction. Only one man can seek those chosen to stop the evil and save them all.
In a world rich with magic and technology, a seamless blend of Fantasy and Sci-Fi, Destiny’s Kingdom explores Quade’s journey as he quests to save a galaxy that has always known peace and prosperity from a powerful evil only he can face.
Legend of the Chosen is book one in the Destiny’s Kingdom series.

Teaser:

"All she could think of now was the events of the previous day, all she kept hearing again and again in her mind was Quade's voice, all she kept seeing was the confused desperation that flashed in his eyes.
'P'cadia lost, P'cadia found...' How could this be happening?" (51%)

So far so good with this book! I am 51% of the way through it and am loving it. When I initially started I had the feeling of oh-no-not-another-dragger but I am soooo happy to be wrong! The introduction of the character of Clea (as quoted above) is what changed it for me I think. I was lucky enough to request and receive this gem to review from Goodreads and will probably have the review up by the end of the week at the pace I'm zooming through it :).

  6. Nice teaser. It gives me a good sense of the book! Strangely, I don't read much sci-fi, though I love movies and tv shows in that vein. Maybe I'll give this a try!
