Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by …
MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:
Grab your current read.
Open to a random page.
- Share a couple of “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
- Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
- Remember to share the title and author too.
- Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.
It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.
‘THE DIABOLIST’ by LAYTON GREEN
So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.
If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.
A cold breeze passed across Viktor’s face, and he started. It was May in England, and the weather was still quite cool – but not that cool. Moreover, he knew he had shut the cellar door. Had he read too many novels by Dennis Wheatley, imagined the breeze?
Darius took out the ritual knife he had prepared with the proper runes, actually using a soldering iron to carve the characters into the blade. Continuing to chant, Darius walked around the circle and made a shallow cut on each of their arms. They held their arms over chalked pentagram for a count of three, infusing the circle with life.
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a complimentary Kindle download of ‘ The Diabolist’, was gifted to me, by its author Layton Green.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
