Teaser Tuesday #1

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

The rules:

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!

My teaser this Tuesday is from True Calling by Siobhan Davis


I wonder which situation is hardest.
Mine, because I remember everything, or hers because she can’t.  

Planet Novo, nestled in space twelve hundred miles above the surface of the Earth, is the new home of 17 year old Cadet Ariana Skyee. Confused by the government-sanctioned memory erase and distressed at her impending forced marriage and motherhood, Ariana’s plans for the future are thrown into complete disarray.

As the traumatic events within her family life enfold, Ariana grows increasingly alarmed at the authorities apparent pre-occupation with her and feels progressively more isolated and alone.

Her growing feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify as the recently announced pageant, ‘The Calling’, gets underway. Struggling to comprehend the continuous, inexplicable dreams of the mysterious Zane, discovering the past helps shape her future, with devastating personal consequences.

 My Teaser:

'The dreams always have a certain banality; I see Zane doing the same things in every dream, but always with some variable element. A bit like that movie 'Ground Hog Day' which Eve and I saw last month, with the day panning out slightly differently each time over.'

What do you think? Does the book seem interesting to you? Do you like science fiction?

I'm curious about the world this author has created. Sounds like a good story.
My Tuesday post features THE LEGACY LETTERS.
