Teaser Tuesday – The Tension of Opposites, Morpheus Road, and Jormungand

It’s time for Teaser Tuesday again! Where does the time go?? For a full description of what it is, check the bottom of this post.

The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride is a book that I approached with caution.  I wasn’t sure I would like it because of the subject matter.  So far I am pleasantly surprised, and am finding the narrative very compelling.

“I had been riding my bike to Carrie’s, pedaling fast as I wondered why Noelle wasn’t answering my texts, when I found the only known clue. Noelle’s red Schwinn was impossible to miss, lying on its side like it had been torn from her clinging hands and spit from the mouth of a monster.”

Morpheus Road: The Light by D. J. MacHale has a pretty interesting premise – the hero comes face to face with a character who he created, who should only exist in the pages of a sketchbook.

“I blasted out of there and headed back to my bedroom.  I’d never spoken like that to my dad, but then again, he’s never spoken to me like that either.  Where did he get off saying I wasn’t normal?”

After enjoying the first volume of Biomega so much, I picked up another Viz Signature book, Jormungand by Ketaro Takahashi. 

“There are so many weapons around that it almost makes me think the whole world is made of metal and gunpowder.  I hold a tool developed for the sole purpose of killing other human beings and I despise the very fact of its existence.”

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!
