Teaser #1:He smiles, a faint curve of his lips that reveals the barest hint of a long dimple carved in his right cheek. “No, but I can read your expression. And I’ve been doing this long enough that I know what most people tend to think when they first open their eyes.”“Doing what long enough?”“This,” he says, and nothing more.A second of silence stretches into two. Though I can’t see behind his glasses, I have the feeling he’s not looking at me anymore, that he’s scanning the area, looking for…something. But as I stare at him, I see me—tiny distorted reflections of me in the shiny, convex lenses.

Teaser #2:I stare at the things in front of me: the Drau. I can’t look away.Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remember Jackson talking about Medusa.Don’t look at their eyes.Their mercury eyes.They’re poison.They will kill me.Copyright © 2013. Eve Silver. All Rights Reserved.
Teaser #3:Color and sound explode, too bright, too loud. Even the air on my skin feels like it’s too much. My fingers go lax. The bag’s handle slides down my palm, then along my fingers to the tips, impossibly slow. The world tips and tilts and I flail for balance.Luka grabs my hand and holds tight.I blink. My house, my open front door, Dad, they’re all gone. My breath comes in short gasps and every muscle in my body feels like it’s knotted up tight.I’m standing in a grassy clearing bounded by trees.The lobby.We’ve been pulled.Copyright © 2013.
