Intros & Teasers: It's Tuesday!

To take part in Tuesday Intros simply share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read. Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

To take part in Teaser Tuesday turn to a random page in the book you are reading, and share two teaser sentences from that page, without sharing spoilers. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

It has taken me a while to get back in to the swing of "normal" blogging after taking part in the A To Z Challenge but here I am back with another teaser and intro:

Tuesday Intro

On the day Claire became a member of the Glass House, somebody stole her laundry.

Teaser Tuesday

And she stepped forward and slapped Claire across the face, hard enough to draw blood, hard enough to make flares and comets streak across Claire's vision, hard enough to make everything turn red and boiling hot.
Claire let go of the banister and slapped Monica right back, full across her pouty mouth, and for just a tight white-hot second she actually felt good about it, but then Monica hissed like a scorched cat, and Claire had time to think, Oh crap, I really shouldn't have done that.

Loc 176, Glass Houses by Rachel Caine

This book counts towards my totals for the New Author Challenge 2015 hosted by Literary Escapism and the Fur and Fangs Reading Challenge 2015 hosted by Phantasmic Reads and Novel Heartbeat.

Chippy, I'm not sure what to think after reading the intro? I do think I'd read a bit more though. Hope you enjoy it.
