Teaser Tuesday: In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton

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

"So, just dating?"

"I intend a good deal more than that," Finn said. Mr. Wylltson's eyebrows lifted again, and Finn turned completely red.

"I mean to say I'm a marrying man...I know what you're thinking, and you're right. I'm eighteen years old. But I'm the man who can keep her alive when the goblins come hunting." 

Okay, so I might have fudged the rules a little this week for the teaser. But honestly, it's Finn. I needed to do him justice. What eighteen-year-old boy fights goblins, wields duct tape like a master, and is also a chivalrous, honorable marrying man? (Forget Edward Cullen. Finn is another reason to be Team Human.)

About In the Forests of the Night (The Goblin Wars, #2) by Kersten Hamilton:

The battle against goblinkind continues . . . but which side will Teagan be on?

Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man’s forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends. 

Tea knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich. And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win.
