Teaser Tuesday: Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I was recently sent Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede to me for review. The author played on our Minnesota connection but I was intrigued by the paranormal aspects of this one as much as by the Minnesota setting. Here is the description:
Ander McNair used to be the favorite son of a great monster-hunting family – until he was bitten by a werewolf and the hunter became the hunted. Now anything that makes his pulse race, even a kiss from his girlfriend Cicely, is enough to turn him into a monster. When he finally has his chance to earn his cure by killing a vampire prince, Ander finds he has to choose between his own past and the future of the girl he loves. Can a guy who’s not even human learn what it means to be a man? Luke Marianez used to be an immortal vampire prince – until the witch he loved betrayed him and cursed him with the ability to die. Now he lives in the world of vampire blood bars where the waitresses are the drinks, and dreams about killing the last of the witch’s line so he can live forever. But revenge doesn’t just mean breaking the curse. He wants to break the girl's heart, too. Can Luke seduce Cicely without falling in love himself? Cicely Watson doesn’t believe in werewolves or vampires. She’s not even sure she believes in true love. But she’s about to discover what every werewolf knows: People change.

Ander is much taller than me and extremely strong. There's no way I could get away from him, even if I wanted to.

And of course I don't want to. What I want is for this to be a real hug.
I have just begun this one but I definitely like Cicely already.


  1. Hmm, the setting soudns great, but the vampire guy might be a little too villainous for me. :-)

  2. Verrry interesting!! So wondering what warranted this thought!!

    Here's my Teaser
