Teaser Tuesday (#20)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here are the rules:
  • Open your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Share the title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!
Three teasers from various books I am reading.  Hope you enjoy them! :D

From Thin Air by Lynn Seresin, Chapter Four
I was losing him to gravity, losing him forever.  My wings beat faster still, faster than I would have thought possible.  The ether now howled about us, and I screamed my anguish at the sky...
Thin Air (Thin Air Saga, Book One) by Lynn Seresin

Synopsis From Goodreads:
Alice Ayre is no ordinary teenager. She took her first name from a statue in Central Park, pulled her last name out of the air (literally), and she’s actually almost a thousand years old. In fact, the only “ordinary” thing about Alice is that she’s in love.
Alice was a sylphid—a winged air spirit—when she spotted Daniel Field camping in the Adirondacks and lost her heart to the handsome NYU student. Intangible to the human senses, her only hope of winning his heart resides in becoming mortal, even though transmutation is forbidden by Paralda, ruler of the air. Risking punishment, however, seems a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness.
Enraged over Alice’s departure, Paralda has sent transmuted assassins to pursue her into the human world. Alone with her secret–who would believe her?—Alice must elude a nameless, faceless enemy sworn to destroy the happy, new life she’s risked so much to achieve.
Loving this book!  I've actually finished this, but I thought I'd pop up one more teaser!  Keep an eye out for my posts, and see a run down on the blog tour: here.

Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide, #3)
From Legend of Witchtrot Road by E.J. Stevens, Chapter Seven, Page 48
"What happened in here?"  I asked.
"Simon and Gabriel happened," Cal said, running his hands through his shaggy hair.  "Gabriel announced that he was moving in and tried emptying his entire Humvee into the cabin."
"It was just a few things," Gabriel muttered.
"I take it that didn't go over well?"  Emma asked, raising an eyebrow at the mess.
Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide, Book Three) by E.J. Stevens
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.
Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.
The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?
I love, love, love, love Yuki and this whole series!  It's so cute and so scary at the same time!  My review for Legend of Witchtrot Road should be up soon.  In the meantime, here are my reviews for the rest of the Spirit Guide series.  :D

Fracture by Megan Miranda, Chapter One, Page 7
I didn't have the presence of mind to think, Please God, don't let me die.  I wasn't brave enough to think, I hope Decker stayed back.  My only thought, playing on a repetitive loop, was, No, no, no, no, no.
Fracture by Megan Miranda
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine—despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature—or something much more frightening?
This is wonderful!  I'm loving it so far!  It's amazing, Delaney is brilliant, I love Decker, the writing is incredible.  It's out January - keep an eye out for my review! :D
Well, there are my teasers: hope one caught your fancy!
What are your teasers this week?
