Teaser Tuesdays: The Book of Lost Souls


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

I'm trying to be proactive and schedule a few posts this week, so it is highly possible I will have finished this book by the time this post is up and will have already moved on to something else, but what can you do? :-)

The wooden casket in the grave had deteriorated. The top had caved in some time ago, allowing dirt inside. The skeleton inside was void of hair and only scraps of tattered grey clothing clung to the remains. He or she was also missing a leg bone.

"Well, on the bright side, it has been almost a month since Uncle Lucas dug up the last one," Bane said.

  2. Okaayyy.. Bane sure seems to be an optimist. ;)
    So this one is about grave raiders or something along those lines?
    The cover and title are really interesting.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT. Happy Tuesday!
