Teaser Tuesday #24: Bec

“I touch the back of a leathery demon about twice my height. It looks down on my and laughs. I say a word and the nails of my fingers instantly lengthen, digging deep into the monster, piercing its skin, bones, inner organs. The hellish creature chokes, blood gurgling up its throat. My nails burst out the far side of its body. I say another word and jerk my hand away, snapping free of the nails, leaving them buried within. The demon collapses, shudders, then goes still.”

Taken from Bec by Darren Shan, about halfway through the book. You can find this book on the Children’s shelf in bookstores, yet there is nothing childish about this series at all. It comes with a deserved warning on the back: Seriously Scary. Review to come soon (:
