Teaser Tuesday: Valkyrie Rising, The Blessed, The Scorpio Races, & Don't Turn Around


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


"Back in the time of the Vikings, soldiers were encouraged to embrace death without fear," he said. "And according to their religion, according to what is now considered myth, Valkyries were beautiful women who hovered around battlefields, and when brave fighters were killed, they took their souls to Valhalla - a fortress ruled by Odin, god of death and war and knowledge. From a military standpoint, it was a brilliant belief system."

~ Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson, pg. 56 (ARC)



"The charms, they're called milagros. That means miracles," he said, handing them back to their respective owners. "They are used to ground you. Heal you. Lead you home."

"Well, fail!" Cecilia said, throwing up her arms. "I'm not home. In fact, I don't even have a home!"

~ The Blessed by Tonya Hurley, pg. 127 (ARC)



"Where's the other horse?" she asks. Her mare tries to nibble her hair, and Kate slaps at her, absently. The pony tosses her head up with mock displeasure. It's a game bred of familiarity, one that warms me to both of them.

~ The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, pg. 152



"My name is Mason," he said. "Someone will be by shortly to repair the front door." Then, without breaking stride, he marched out the door and into the night.

~ Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon, pg. 24
