Teaser Tuesday: Flashfall by Jenny Moyer

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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!

"We've just raised the alert. Techs have traced patterns of instability in the atmosphere. They've warned us to expect anomalies and fluctuations in the flash curtain. A flash storms coming!" He tosses the words out as if they don't weigh anything at all. As if they don't invoke memories of deaths so violent, I still have nightmares of it.
This week I am reading Flashfall by Jenny Moyer. I got this review book from Macmillan. Here is the description from Amazon:
Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium―the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.

But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.


  1. Hum, this sounds like it has possibilities.

  2. Sounds like good science fiction. I haven't read any novel length in a while. My Teaser

  3. I really like the sound of this one - a classic sci fi adventure - thank you for sharing and swinging by earlier:)
