Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along by doing 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!
“It’s that moon again, slung so fat and low in the tropical night, calling out across a curdled sky and into the quivering ears of that dear old voice in the shadows, the Dark Passenger, nestled snug in the backseat of the Dodge K-car of Dexter’s hypothetical soul.That rascal moon, that loudmouthed leering Lucifer, calling down across the empty sky to the dark hearts of the night monsters below, calling them away to their joyful playgrounds.”
(~ Dearly Devoted Dexter by Jeff Lindsay, Kindle Edition, 2005)
[Note: This is the second book of Dexter‘s series. While Showtime TV series is worldwide famous – with good reasons – not so many people have read the books. I read the first one – Darkly Dreaming Dexter – when I’ve started the TV series and I found the two really close, in terms of quality, narrative, POV and supportive characters. From the second onward, however, the two diverge. While the quality remains high, the stories follow different paths. After having watched – a few times – TV Dexter, now I’m discovering his book sibling -an amazing one! ]
