Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
This week my teaser comes from The Boy On the Bridge by M.R. Carey. I haven’t actually started reading this but I’ve decided that as it’s October I’m going to choose teasers from horror stories (and I couldn’t find my copy of Girl with All the Gifts). This is a companion novel (apparently it starts before and finishes after) The Girl with all the Gifts which I absolutely loved and would recommend everyone reads, even if you don’t like horror.

The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.
To where the monsters lived.
