Teaser Tuesday: Andromeda Rising by James Ramsey

Today’s teaser comes from Andromeda Rising by James Ramsey. I won a copy of the book in a virtual book tour and recently received my signed copy from James.

andromedarisingsignedI’m not one of those people who will go to great lengths to get an autograph. In fact, the chance that I will ask for an autograph is pretty much nil. Just not my thing, I guess.

But I must confess I felt all giddy when this book arrived in the mail. It is one of two autographed books I own. The other book is signed by Dan Rather but this one means more because it is tangible proof that yet another one of my blogging friends has published a book. Pretty cool stuff. Thanks for the book James. I’m really enjoying it!

Here is an excerpt:

“I held my breath as one of the small shadows came closer. The amulet on my chest began to vibrate softly, barely more than a hint of a humming–something to ask Mateo about if we lived through this.”

Here is the book description from Goodreads:

I should have been paying attention. Growing up on the run from religious fanatics gave me more than a few good reasons to be careful, but I was just too tired to be as vigilant as I should have been.  My mind was occupied with my latest case—a missing nine year old girl. I was usually good at my job, but sometimes I needed a little extra help from magick. I always managed to track down a cheating spouse or the occasional runaway, but now it seemed more children were missing from the streets of Seattle and nothing I did worked.

A cat jumped on my shoulder and jerked me from my exhaustion induced stupor.  I spun into a defensive crouch only to see the cat had landed on the sidewalk behind me.

Time seemed to stop for a moment when the cat spoke.

“RUN!”

My name is Jocelyn Matthews and if I live through tonight, I’ll tell you all about my life as a witch.
