Teaser Tuesday: Blood Song


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their to be read piles.

This Weeks Teaser Comes From:

Title: Blood Song
Author: Rhiannon Hart
Series: Lharmell #1
Publisher: Random House Australia
Publication Date: September 1, 2011


I wanted to turn but I was held captive by the song on the wind. I’m coming, I told the voices. Please, wait for me.
When her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina’s only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side – and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated.
Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her out as different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behaviour for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king’s advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more.
Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she’s to uncover the truth – but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares?


TEASER 1:
"I was going to prove he was a monster. But first, I had to make sure that I didn't end up as his wife"
Page 121

TEASER 2:
"...like curious snakes wondering whether to strike. I opened my mouth to scream but the sound was frozen in my throat."


I just received this book yesterday in the mail, and I am already devouring it. 
Blood Song is only published in Australia, which makes getting a copy in the US very hard. Dani @ Refracted Light Reviews offered up an extra copy to be part of a tour she organized, and I very ecstatic that I get to be a part of it. I sincerely hope that this book series is published internationally very soon, so everyone can enjoy it. Please come back Saturday to see my final thoughts on the book after I finish it!!
And a big THANK YOU TO DANI!!

I loved this book! So, so SO much love XD I had to get mine through fishpond.com and I definitely agree that this should be published in the US. I think it'd definitely be a hit :D Hope you continue to enjoy it!

All the best ♥

I have picked this book up a couple of times but always bought something else in its place, I think it is time for me to buy it.

I've heard of this one and have it on my TBR list, but I didn't realize it was only published in Australia. Guess it's a good thing I'm moving there this summer! Great teasers! The first one definitely caught my attention.

Feel free to check out my teaser here.

That is probably one of the most beautiful covers I've ever seen! Is the book as good as the cover? lol

"...sound was frozen in my throat." That sounds like something out of a really bad dream. This book sounds like it would be a page-turner.
