Teaser Tuesday (5) STORK BY WENDY DELSOL ;; 2010 YA DEBUT

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post a couple sentences.

I haven't done one in a while. But since I really like the writing style of my currently-reading, I'm thinking Why the hell not? . . . so let's get on with it!

Here is a teaser for Stork by Wendy Delsol (ARC) -- which is MUCH, MUCH longer than 2 sentences for the very purpose of whetting your appetites; Stork releases in a few weeks' time!
"Jaelle," I call. She can't hear me. "Jaelle, it's me, Kat." No reply. "Jaelle!" My voice increases in volume and intensity, yet Jaelle still does not respond.

She takes a few steps farther into the ring. She approaches one of the stumps, runs her hands along its rough-hewn surface, and lowers herself into the chiseled seat.

She then reaches behind this forest bench and pulls what appears to be an orange cape over her shoulders. She settles it comfortably about her shoulders, so I am at first fooled into thinking that it's a cloak of sorts. As I watch, though, flames lick up the back and onto Jaelle's neck.

She doesn't seem to notice. Terrified for her safety, I call to her: "Jaelle, be careful!" She still doesn't hear me, nor does she appear burned or even aware of the heat. She adjusts the fire cape, seemingly luxuriating in its warmth.

She sits back, crosses her legs languidly, settles her gaze upon the newborn, and falls into a pleasant, sleeplike, sentry of the beautiful child. (pp. 79-80)
