Teaser Tuesday – Crossfire

This is my 1st post for Teaser Tuesday 🙂 kinda late isn’t it?? Well…better late than never 😉

I am currently reading Crossfire by Miyuki Miyabe. It’s about a girl who has ability to start fire by using will power…in other word, Pyrokinesis.
Junko Aoki used her power to eliminate criminals, in her eyes those criminals can’t be said as human.

But, of course, her action was not acceptable. 2 detectives, Michiko Ishizu and Makihara, were trying to find her. Makihara believed in the existance of such power while Ishizu was still trying to believe.

I am almost finish, it’s a 403 pages book and I am now in page 325. So far, I enjoy reading every page of this book….but I enjoy reading about Junko more than about Ishizu.

My teaser are:

From page 62

I hope you figure it out, Junko pleaded silently. Because I know the fate of those who sacrifice the lives of innocent people for their own ennui, discontent, and greed. At least if I, Junko Aoki, get them in my sights.

From page 268

I Understand what you’re saying. I think you’re right. But I’m beginning to lose confidence in myself. It might be because I did too much killing in short a time. It might be because the smell of blood has filtered into my pores.

Updated on Dec 24:
I have finished the book and it was amazing…it’s a 5 stars book for me. Review is here.

What is Teaser Tuesday?


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  2. Sounds like the American novel Firestarter by Stephen King. Those quotes are definitely attention grabbers! Thank you for sharing them.
