Teaser Tuesday: Ward Against Death by Melanie Card {4}

It's Tuesday! And we all know what that means!!! TEASER TUESDAY! EGADS! Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading, and it is quite simple.

All you have to do is this:
  1. Pick up whatever book you are currently reading.
  2. Open it up to a random page.
  3. Pick two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page. (Be careful not to spoil anything!)
  4. Share those sentences! Be sure to include the book title, author, etc. so your readers can add it to their to be read pile if they're intrigued!
Easy peasy, right?

Now I am endeavoring to finish Ward Against Death by Melanie Card at some point today, since it's out TODAY! Yayes for Ms. Melanie Card, right? So this is where my teaser is coming from, and I'm hoping a review will be soon to follow. *fingers crossed!!* Since I'm actually reading this on my Nook, and opening to a random page is rather difficult, I'm going to teaser from the page I'm on! 

From page 139 (though I suspect the page numbers on my Nook are not quite right...):

Ward stretched his arms up and out as they walked down the narrow city street, energized and joyous. The surgery, for all of its non-medical complications, had gone well. And if he didn't think too much about the smoky images of his life flying through the room and what the Tracker planned to do about it, he could enjoy the glimmer of pride that came with living the life he knew he was destined for. 

Denial was such a powerful tool.

Interesting, yes? No more information about what's happening, though! You'll just have to pick up the book to find out! :)

As always, thanks for checking out my teaser, and I'd love to see yours! Please leave a link here if you'd like me to check it out. I'd love for you to follow my blog, or follow me on Twitter, or be my friend on Goodreads, so we can chat! (I really love to chat, especially about books.)
