Teaser Tuesday: Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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!

Now, finally my eyes burn and panic balloons in my throat. Of all the stories we keep in Sticks about the dangers of the swamp, there's not one in which someone who went inside it returns unchanged.
This week my teaser comes from Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description of this October 21 release debut novel:
Southern Gothic gets a whole new twist in this debut novel, sure to appeal to fans of the New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures series.

The swamp in Sterling's small Louisiana town proves to have a power over its inhabitants when her brother disappears and no one but Sterling even remembers that he existed. Now Sterling, with the help of brooding loner Heath, who's had his own creepy experience with the swamp, must fight back and reclaim what—and who—the swamp has taken.

Beware the Wild is a riveting and atmospheric page-turner readers won't want to miss.


  1. I'm not sure this one is for me but I DO like that cover!
    My teaser today is from Lost and Found by Brooke Davis.

  2. Yes, I like that one! Good teaser.

    I have two teasers today from Veronica Roth’s YA dystopian “Divergent” series:


  3. I've always been fascinated by the Atchafalaya swamp (as well as others) in Louisiana. A great setting for a story. This sounds like a good one.
    My Tuesday post features THE LITTLEST COWBOY.
