It's Time For Another Intro & Teaser

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.

Here's mine this week:

Tuesday Intro

The boy ran down the rain-soaked street, weaving between abandoned cars. He crouched behind one of the vehicles and tried to quiet his laboured breath. At first he heard nothing, but then behind the noise of the falling rain he made out another sound - one that in recent months he had learned to fear, The high-pitched whine was getting louder, and that meant the Drones had tracked his scent. The boy forced himself to his feet, pushing the long black hair out of his eyes and set off down the road again. He didn't look back - if there was anything behind him he would rather not know.

Teaser Tuesday

Further along the corridor was a door that led into the dispensary area. It had already been forced open, the frame around the lock splintered and cracked.

Hmmm..I'm suspecting this is not a good match for me. I do hope you enjoy it though.

Very intense! Definitely one to look up :D

My teaser is from A Fever of the Blood by Oscar de Muriel

Sounds like there's lots of drama in this story. I'm curious about the world this author has created.
My Tuesday post features ROUND THE BEND.
