Teaser Tuesdays – Blue Noon (4 September)

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 teasers for this week:

The two of them were standing inside Polychronious, a large and complex tridecagram that Dess had laid down on a patch of clearing, using a spool of fiber-optic cable stolen from Oklahoma Telecom a few midnights ago. The cable smelled bright and buzzy to Rex, like cleaning detergent fumes going up his nose, and the thirteen-pointed star Dess had woven with it made his head spin.

From page 83 of Blue Noon by Scott Westerfeld, which is the third book in his Midnighters trilogy. I’ve enjoyed this series so far and am looking forward to finishing it soon.

    • This series appeared first in 2004, just before his Uglies series, which, along with his Leviathan series, seems to have eclipsed Midnighters. It’s worth checking out if you are a fan of science-fiction fantasy. Thanks for dropping by.
