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. It’s a companion novel (is that the right word?) to one of my favorite books, The Girl with All the Gifts and is one I’ve been wanting to read for ages but am only now getting around to. Very early days, I’m 5% in, but so far so good.
Seven weeks into a fifteen-month mission, ten years after the world ended and a hundred miles from home, Dr Samrina Khan is pregnant.
But this is not Bethlehem, and there will be no manger.
~ 4% The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey
Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.
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.
