Teaser Tuesdays (1) – Teeth: Vampire Tales

Sometimes it’s fun being a tease! And what better way to spice up a boring ol’ Tuesday than by highlighting a scintillating passage from a spooky book? For my first Teaser Tuesday blurb, I bring you an intriguing little snippet from Jeffrey Ford’s uber-creepy vampire tale  Sit the Dead,  page 212.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here’s how it works:

• 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:

Luke looked through the open doors and down the aisle before him, past the rows of darkened pews, to the altar – white marble, crowded with statues, and holding the candlelit coffin of Gracie.  

He took a deep breath and moved toward the light.

Whoa there…did I just hear a strange noise outside my window? I better double-check those door locks and sleep with my Hello Kitty nightlight tonight!
