Teaser Tuesdays #27: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard



Teaser Tuesdays 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!

Today’s Teaser Tuesday:

Book cover for Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard.
Summary (from Goodreads): There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia. . . .

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about.

Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper:

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor . . . from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including the maddeningly stubborn yet handsome Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

Goodreads | Book Depository 

I am reading this first book of Susan Dennard’s Something Strange and Deadly series as part of the Read-a-Long being hosted by the Waterwitch Babes. While I have never been a huge fan of historical fiction, this book takes the genre to a whole new level!

Here is the teaser:

“I didn’t care if I looked like a fool frolicking through the library.”

If you have done a Teaser Tuesday yourself, leave a comment with your link and I will be sure to check it out. 🙂

    I can relate, I’ve looked like a fool frolicking through the library one too many times!
    I can’t understand why this book keeps being pushed down to the bottom of my TBR, it sounds so exciting and it involves zombies. ZOMBIES! 😀

      I have never had time to read it either. The reading challenge pushed me into the series and now there is no way out! Its is so awesome! Makes the wait for Truthwitch a little less painful!

      So jealous that you have read Truthwitch! I will hold on to this series while I try to wait patiently! Susan has an incredible talent that is hard to match, for sure!
