Tuesday Teaser–July 17

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  This meme is simple and fun, you just pick up your current read, flip to a random page, and choose 1 or 2 teaser sentences to share!  Here are the guidelines:

  • Grab Your Current Read
  • Open to a random page
  • Pick two “teaser” sentences from that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO SHARE SPOILERS! (make sure what you share doesn’t give too much away.  You don’t want to ruin the book for other readers)
  • INCLUDE the TITLE & AUTHOR too, so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR and wish-lists!  If possible, add the page number.
  • I’m almost finished with this one but I hadn’t shared a Tuesday Teaser from it yet, so…   

Catch the Lightning by Catherine Asaro 
pg.96-97: Heather shook her head. “Making speed complex may remove the singularity at light speed, but even if you get to superluminal space, you still have trouble. For one thing you could go back in time.”
“Going pastward is no problem,” Althor said. “It looks like you go forward in time, but in ship made from antiparticles flying from your destination to your departure point.”
“That’s the lamest thing I ever heard,” Daniel said.
Althor’s reaction caught us all by surprise. He rose to his full height, towering over Daniel, his fists clenched. “You say I am crippled?”
Daniel stepped back. “Well–no. I didn’t mean that at all.”
Althor stood there, fists knotted at his sides, while we all stared at him. Then I had the sense he reset himself, as he had done the night I asked about the hinge in his hand…”

Yes, I’m a geek. I love this part. 🙂 But Althor’s an interesting guy. Want to know more about him? Catch the Lightning is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
