Okay, you had me at ogres! I wanted to read this as soon as I saw that! It's not every day that people write about orges and it made me think of my favorite Roald Dahl book "The Giants" or the Rock Biter in "The Never Ending Story!" I'm a sucker for those giant sized people! I love the phrase, "She stayed in position for a couple thousand heartbeats." Great teaser!

Remilda Graystone said...

Um...what is going on, because this is awesome and I need to know! Ogres...not something I hear about often, so my interest was definitely piqued then. Your main character sounds smart, and the tension in this scene was wonderful! I liked the descriptions. I could picture everything that was happening clearly.

Kathy Bradey said...

Woohoo, ogres!!! Sounds tense and exciting! :))) I look forward to reading... and finding out what happens next aka the almost scream.

Jenny said...

Oohh, amazing! <3 it and what a horrible way to leave it :P

Jamie B said...

Ogres are under-represented! You go with the ogres! :) I already love Eve - what a brave, spunky heroine!

V.M.Pettingill said...

Why did she scream!? I can't wait to read this!!

Marilyn Almodovar said...

OMG NO where is the rest????? Loved this! I just need to know more. I'm curious as to what your version of Ogres is!

Little Miss Allicatt said...

I loved your pacing in this. It's rare to find someone with absolutely perfect pacing. And I can't forget orges =P Great tease!

Phoebe said...

Cruel to end your tease on a cliff-hanger like that. But effective!

Karla Nellenbach said...

you're a cruel, cruel woman, Kaitlin. How could you do that to us? WHY? **sigh..sniff, sniff**

GREAT TEASE!! :) <333

What a great cliff-hanger ending! I almost want more tension, this is some scary stuff she's doing and what if she gets caught, will they try and kill her, hurt her, um, eat her? I don't know, I'd like to know her thoughts on that! So, I agree, you have a knack for pacing, but I also think you could definitely spice it up a bit with the tension. And watch those -ly adverbs. Well done though, I definitely want to know why she almost screamed!!

Lia Victoria said...

AHHHHH CLIFFHANGER *mutters* Absolutely brill!

LizPage said...

I am so in love with this plotline. I just have to know more.

Leah said...

:O :O :O
Not...a CLIFFHANGER! Lol literally too. She was hanging off a cliff for a while there.
Seriously, I need more. I need something to satisfy my craving for high fantasy, since there just isn't good fantasy books these days...

Cory Jackson said...

Who is there when she turns? Don't let it be the ogres! I liked the reference to a couple thousand heartbeats as if she is counting them out.

Glen Akin said...

Ah, come on! Cliff hanger?! Lol not fair! I was really enjoying myself! Lovely teaser :D

Michelle Schusterman said...

LOVE this!!! Great teaser! And I'm cracking up because I didn't even realize it was a "literal cliffhanger" until I read the comments. :)

Kaitlin Ward said...

Michelle: I didn't even realize it myself haha.
Leah is too clever :)

Ellen said...

Haha, cliffhanger <.< But seriously. WHAT HAPPENED?! Ahhh! :)
Love the action in this scene, I can picture it all happening!

Bri said...

I loved this! So well written. And, that cliffhanger definitely makes me want to read on!

Becca Rogers said...

I saw the word "ogres" and got all excited. loool

But that last line was definitely a cliffhanger!! :]
