Teaser Tuesday - 7/27

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!

This week my teaser comes from A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge.
A Fire Upon the Deep [FIRE UPON THE DEEP] [Mass Market Paperback]

Here it is: "And then Ravna heard it, a keening that might have come from a voder. The sound was steadily growing, a howl that made all Blueshell's sound effects friendly nonsense." Pg. 410


  1. Sounds scary! I've seen this series before but haven't read it yet. My teaser is from Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James. Happy reading!

  2. I don't know what a voder is, but it doesn't sound friendly!

  3. Maybe if knew what a voder was it might make more sense but since it cancels out the other noises it must be horribly loud! My Teaser

  4. Hmm I've never heard of this author before. Looks like an interesting sci-fi kind of book. I'll have to look it up! Nice teaser. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  5. Interesting and somewhat ominous! Loud sounds usually aren't a good thing, lol.

    Our teaser this week is from Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick!

    Happy reading :)

  6. I have Fire Upon the Deep on my TBR. Mine's from Devil to Pay, a book I wrote.
