I will be taking my teasers from The Shifters of 2040  by Ami Blackwelder

Page 13:
 She wanted to inflict as little harm as she could in this inhumane research. But
then, the shifters didn’t remind her much of anything human, or
of anything living.

Page 14:
Melissa turned her head away and refused to watch the deliberate
pain inflicted, to merely learn how much electricity the
SCM needed to wound, stun and kill shifters. Once the shifter
returned to a still state, the shadow regained what Melissa called
consciousness, and the blackness retreated as yellow lights returned.

Page 15:
The room filled with silence and then the shifter who had
vanished spilled out of the wire and reassembled over the hard
floor. The shadow shape metamorphosed into a large white bear,
thrusting wide paws at the assistant. 

I will be reviewing a few of Ami's books soon. Watch for them.

Please leave me a comment with where to find your teaser. If you don't have a blog then please feel free to leave a sentence or two from a book you are reading !
