Teaser Tuesday: GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open it to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO REVEAL SPOILERS! (Be sure not to spoil the book for others!
  • Make sure your sentences don't reveal something important!)
  • Include the title and author to, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
I'm just about to dive into this one, and so as not to ruin anything for myself, I kinda, sorta cheated.  Here's my teaser/the first two sentences ;-)
"I bear a deep red stain that runs from my left shoulder down to my right hip, a trail left by the herbwitch's poison that my mother used to try to expel me from her womb.  That I survived, according to the herbwitch, is no miracle but a sign I have been sired by the god of death himself."
I.Love.It.Already.  Hope the entire book's as good as the beginning.  I am expecting great things :)
Hope everyone's having a terrific week, and if you haven't already entered, the I LOVE STEAMPUNK Giveaway is still on!
