Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. All you have to do is grab your current read, open to a random page, and share two teaser sentences (that don't give too much away).
This week's teaser is brought to you by the zombie-infested first book in the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy:
"Just as my brain screamed for this hot oil to leave my skin, for my heart to slow, that I could take no more, a howl of pain erupted from Joseph's mouth. The lines of blue lightning stopped. The darkness was gone."
— Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard (page 184)
