Teaser Tuesday (5): Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

Teaser Tuesday 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!

This week's teaser comes from the following book:


Title:  Dark Inside (Dark Inside #1)
Author:  Jeyn Roberts
Publisher:  Simon & Schuster
Published:  May 24, 2011

Amazon | B&NThe Book Depository

Since the beginning of mankind, civilizations have fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs… and now us. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening: An ancient evil has been unleashed, and it’s turning everyday people into hunters, killers, and crazies.

This is the world Mason, Aries, Clementine, and Michael are living in—or rather, trying to survive. Each is fleeing unspeakable horror, from murderous chaos to brutal natural   disasters, and each is traveling the same road in a world gone mad.

Amid the throes of the apocalypse and clinging to love and meaning wherever it can be found, these four teens are on a journey into the heart of darkness—and to find each other and a place of safety.


My teaser is:

"I want to stop.  I want someone to help me.
Help me, before I kill her."
-pg. 192

How magnificently creepy and frightening is that?  I have to say, I just started Dark Inside after it came highly recommended by the fabulous Christy at Love of Books, but I can already tell it is destined to be a favorite.  I have a feeling I'm going to be up late tonight with this one!

I'd love to know what your Teaser Tuesday is! Leave me a link in the comments so I can visit you!
