**Teaser Tuesday ~ #48**


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

Hunting in Bruges (Hunters' Guild, #1)
Hunting in Bruges
Hunters' Guild #1
by E.J. Stevens
Adult, Urban Fantasy


Synopsis
The only thing worse than being a Hunter in the fae-ridden city of Harborsmouth, is hunting vamps in Bruges.

Being shipped off to Belgium sucks. The medieval city of Bruges is quaint, but the local Hunters' Guild is understaffed, the canals are choked with dead bodies, and there's no shortage of supernatural predators as likely suspects.

On second thought, maybe Bruges isn't so bad after all.

With a desire to prove herself, protect the innocent, and advance within the ranks of the Hunters' Guild, Jenna Lehane hits the cobbled streets of Bruges with blades at the ready. Someone, or something, is murdering tourists and dumping their bodies in the city's scenic canals. With the help of a mysterious stranger, Jenna begins to piece together clues that are dotted throughout the city like blood spatter.

Determined to stop the killings, Jenna delves into a bloody local history that only raises more questions - but some secrets are best left buried. Jenna must put her combat training to the test as she struggles to unearth the truth about an ancient enemy.

Hunting in Bruges is the first novel in the Hunters' Guild urban fantasy series set in the world of Ivy Granger.

I drew two stakes and shifted my weight onto the balls of my feet, a slow smile spreading across my face. When you're fighting for your unlife, it's hard to keep your food from running away.

  11. I can't remember - have you read Ivy Granger? I liked HiB but I'm wondering of I would have liked it more had I read Ivy Granger beforehand. Or maybe it was just my book hangover from what I read prior to HiB...

  12. The detailed description of Bruges really put me in the city, Lexxie. And the history was great too. My review posts tomorrow.


    I'm excited you're going to have a break from classes for awhile. :) I worked yesterday and the holiday rush has really begun. But I had fun! :) I am ready for a slower pace though...even if mine will only last ~ 2 weeks. **BIG HUGS**
