Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Darkness Of Light by Stacey Marie Brown
Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.
Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.
When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.
Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.
Scene 1: Pg.88
Oh Holy Hell
"You want to grab something here, Brycin?" he asked, bending over again.
Um...yeah. Your ass.
Joining in, I helped collect the rest of the harnesses.
Scene 2: Pg. 160
"Brycin," He said my name coolly. "I should know by now, you will always find me." I continued to stand there, my stubbornness willing me to stay. He struggled to put his frustration into words. "What is it going to take? Why don't you just go away and leave me in peace?" He turned towards me.
"I could say the same for you," I quipped, crossing my arms, trying to block his hurtful words.
A slight smile spread over his lips as he shook his head. "You don't really want me to."
It was exactly the reason I stood there now. "You don't really want me to either," I said, my voice quit, but strong.
So I honestly LOVE this book, those are just two random scenes I selected, but the book is amazing!
