Excerpt from The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017! I hope you had time over the holidays to read and picked up lots of freebies and New Beginnings books for your ebook reader. I got a few books for Christmas!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

One of the books I was gifted with and read over the holidays was Stephenie Meyer’s new release, The Chemist. My favourite Stephenie Meyer is still The Host, but The Chemist was a fun read. Knowing Meyer’s books, I did predict a few of the twists. However, that didn’t reduce my enjoyment. Here is my teaser:

She tried to imagine sleeping in a bed again. Not carrying a pharmacy’s worth of toxins on her body at all times, Using the same name every day. Making contact with other human beings in a way that left nobody dead.

Stephenie Meyer, The Chemist

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. 

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. 

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous. 

Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

  1. Sounds like a fascinating thriller. I’m wondering where she has been sleeping, and I’m curious about the toxins.
    My Tuesday post features Letters From Paris.

  2. Another book that I’m not sure won’t scare me half to death but not sure I can resist reading it. Here’s mine: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1ra
