Teaser Tuesday #75 and Top Ten Tuesday #65

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Bloggers choose two
sentences out of our current read to peak others' curiosity.

Frozen (Heart of Dread, #1)Teaser: 

The pit boss tucked the roll into his  back pocket, sucked his teeth, and worked a toothpick through his molars. "No baby. Not gonna happen, don't want to see you shot in the head floating in the black water."

Frozen by Melissa Del La Cruz and Michael Johnston


Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she's heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say it’s a paradise, where the sun still shines and the waters are turquoise. More importantly, it’s a place where Nat won’t be persecuted, even if her darkest secret comes to light.

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power within us all.

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.


  1. Nice tease!

    Loving quite a few of your top ten too!! 4, 5, 9 and 10 are faves of mine too! Just didn't pick them for this particular topic!

  5. I considered adding Frozen to my Cover Characteristics- Blue but didn't have enough space. After reading your teaser though, I might be putting Frozen on my TBR list. I love apocalyptic reads and I wonder how the desert became a world of ice. Here is my Teaser Tuesday if you want to stop by!

  6. I'm reading Game soon for Halloween, and I can't wait! I've seen it on a bunch of lists today!

    Here's My TTT

  7. LOVE the teaser! And I agree that Hallowed was a great sequel! Great post!
