Teaser Tuesday (February 9, 2016)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

Here is my teaser:

"Peeps have a subtle scent.  Their feverish bodies consume almost everything they eat, leaving few smells of waste.  Their dry skin exudes none of the salty sweat of a regular person.  But no metabolism is perfect -- my predator's nose detected a hint of rotting meat and the whiff of dead skin cells, like fresh leather hanging on a boot factory wall."
from Peeps by Scott Westerfeld, p.154
