Teaser Tuesday



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. It is open to anyone and is a fun way to get a taste of different books. The rules are simple and everyone is welcome to participate.

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful NOT to include spoilers (you don’t want to ruin the book for others.)
5. Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to the TBR lists if they like your teaser.
6. After completing your post, return to Should Be Reading and add a link in their “comment” section.

“It was dark. There wasn’t a single light down in the town, except for what appeared to be the flicker of a Coleman lamp, some candles.”



This book is not for the faint of heart. The premise of the book, which according to the author is a very real threat facing the United States, is downright sobering. The book has some coarse language as well. I’m letting it slide because if the US was hit with an EMP, caused by a nuke, I just don’t think, “Oh fiddlesticks!” is going to cut it. Am I right?

  1. Great teaser. This book sounds really intense, definitely passed the 'fiddlesticks' level of intenseness.
