Teaser Tuesday - DARKNESS BECOMES HER

As always, Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading.
Here's how it works: Grab the current book you're reading- Open up to a random page- share a little "teaser" from somewhere on that page.***Make sure your section is spoiler free!!


First, here's a synopsis of Darkness Becomes Her from Goodreads:
Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed

And now here's my teaser, from ARC pg 29 (Chapter Three) of Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton:
"The Novem never confirmed or denied these rumors. They never gave interviews, never stepped into the spotlight except to make the purchase. And then they retreated into their ruined city, leaving the rest of the country to wonder. It wasn't long before they joined the ranks of Area 51, Roswell, the Loch Ness Monster, and all the other conspiracy theories and paranormal speculation out there. The undercover reporters and truth seekers who'd come out of the city later on with grainy photographs and accounts of monsters and murders only added to the speculation. And now, thirteen years later, a large percentage of the country believed New 2 was a sanctuary, a hot spot, for the paranormal.

So yes, that was a long teaser, but I like giving long teasers because (maybe) it's more intriguing. And there is certainly a lot of intrigue about this book! Darkness Becomes Her will be released by Simon Pulse on February 22, 2011.

What are yall's teasers for today?
