Teaser Tuesdays – Photographs & Phantoms by Cindy Spencer Pape

Posted October 18, 2011 by Melissa in Teaser Tuesdays | 15 Comments

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Summary from Goodreads:

Brighton, 1855
As a member of the Order of the Round Table, Kendall Lake is overqualified to be investigating strange phenomena at a seaside photography studio. But since the photographer is related to the Order’s most powerful sorcerer, Kendall reluctantly boards a dirigible to Brighton.
Amy Deland is haunted by a shadow that appears in some of her recent portraits. In each case, the subject died within days of the sitting. Does she have her grandmother’s gift of foresight, or has she somehow caused the deaths?
As Kendall and Amy search for answers, their investigation draws them together in a most improper way—but it seems the evil presence in the studio is determined to keep them apart…

Teaser from page 56:

“One thing I know already, Amy. You can’t blame yourself, or believe me, you’ll drive yourself mad.  Bad things, terrible things, do happen in this world.  Perhaps something evil has attached itself to you, but that doesn’t mean you’re at fault.”

This will be my first foray into Steampunk!  I’m excited to see what I make of this subgenre.  At just under 200 pages this is more of a novella and as a free Nook download–the price was right!
What’s your teaser today?

  1. Your first foray into steampunk? AWESOME! I haven’t read this one cause my ereader broke, but I’ve worked with Cindy before and she’s really awesome! I hope the book is just as awesome as the author 🙂

  2. Amy

    Well…I hadn’t seen this one. So far I have to say I’m loving it (points to name on quote, then to my name) ^___^ Great teaser! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. oooh sounds interesting! The photograph thing reminds me a bit of The Sixth Sense, where the kid has this bright light in all his photographs. Eerie.
