Sentence Sneak Peek - Strange Little Band

Strange Little Band by Nancy Brauer and Vanessa Brooks

The first sentence from each chapter of Strange Little Band, it's a mini summary of what you can expect to read.

* I received this book for review from the author, Nancy Brauer.
* Spoilers are highlighted :)

Prologue: "Ellen Myers dabbed at her puffy red eyes with a fresh tissue."

"Addison Harris studied her profile in the full-length mirror in her quarters, smoothing her hands over her swollen belly."

"Nothing was wrong with Dr. Shane Myers."

"The worst part of pregnancy, Addison decided in the middle of week 24, wasn’t the morning sickness or always having to pee."

"Daniel concentrated on putting one foot in front of the other as he ap-proached Archaeology."

"Ashlynn stood at the foot of her mother’s bed and grinned."

"Shane hesitated outside the door to his quarters."


"Green flames leaped from the plush carpet of Chairman Carlyle’s office."

"Giovanni squeezed a few more drops of blood from the shallow cut across his palm."

"Daniel reflected on his impromptu meeting with Chairmen Carlyle and Butler as he strode to his suite."

"Addison closed her eyes as she swallowed the last of the Riesling."

"Here you are, Captain."

"In his imagination Shane had killed Joon Ri dozens of times."

"Addison hesitated outside of Myers' quarters."

"The evening had been all Jake’s."

"Jacob Allen Myers."

"Resting his forehead against the cool Plexiglas of the fake window in his office, Shane gathered as much of his alien calm he could."

"Teague stood in front of the mirror in his bedroom, frowning at the few wrinkles in his button-down shirt."

"The ringing of the damned videophone on the far wall of the bedroom helped Shane pry his eyes open."

"Addison opened her eyes, blinking away sleep and trying to focus on the shapes that took form in the bright light."

"By Addison’s reckoning, the afternoon passed far too quickly."

"Ashlynn mock-pouted at her parents, who lay entangled on the blanket in the middle of the arboretum clearing."

"As Shane strode out of his quarters he thanked the powers that be once again for his wife’s ability to teleport and his alien side."

"Flames climbed the piece of paper in Addison’s hand, consuming a short list of numbers: 24, 9, 76."

"Daniel rang the door chime to Myers’ quarters out of strategy, not necessity."

"Teague limped forward quickly but cautiously, holding his 9 mm pistol ready."

"I don’t want to do this," Ashlynn said again, leaning against the wall of the private room in the psych ward."

"At seven o’clock Teague teleported from Chair— his office to the beach on the west side of the island."
