Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Share links to your post in the comments below – or, if you don’t have a blog, share your teaser in the comments.
Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Make sure what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like the teaser!

WARNING: This book is intended for people aged 18+
Kira, a huntress plagued by dreams of fire and pain has worked tirelessly to rid her city of the scourge that has nearly destroyed it…nostvores, mythlend creatures with dark and vast appetites for blood and sex. She does this not only because they had killed so many people in her life, but also because she has an edge that no other human had…she has their abilities. The problem was, these abilities were killing her and she feared time was no longer on her side.
So the moment she found out that Darius, a nostvore leader was threatening to awaken an indestructible species to help him enslave all humans and mythlends, and that she may be the key to his plan, she knew her only choice was to risk her life with the little time that she had left and join her enemy to find out why, and to make sure his plan failed.
If that wasn’t dangerous enough, the more time she spends with the Vanatre nostvore Emmerich, and the mooran Kuron, who she brings with her for protection, the less she wants to kill them. Instead, she feels an unexplainable attraction towards them both, and she fears surrendering to such desire with either is a deadly game to play, for she would not only be risking her life, but quite possibly her heart.
I’m just getting into The Species Within and it’s slow going. I think that’s partly because I have a lot else going on and partly because it’s an unfamiliar world, so there’s a lot of world building to learn. There’s aspects I’m enjoying so far, so I definitely see potential. Here’s where I’m at right now!
