Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Books And A Beat.

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!


My Teaser for this week is from

Station 331

Cymic Parasite Breach #1

by Darcy Coates



Genre: Horror/Science Fiction

My teaser is from page 27% in the eBook.

“It’s got me, Jen. I dropped my stinger, and I can’t get it off – ” She grunted in pain then yelled something incoherent.

Jen called to her, but Carly either didn’t here or couldn’t respond; she kept screaming and screaming. The shriek’s pitch rose…

Then there was silence.


Read on if you want to know more.



It wears our skin…

Station 331, situated on a remote moon near at edge of the known system, isn’t a prestigious place to work. Its three-person staff has one basic job: kill the plant-like lifeforms that come off space rubble and meteors.

Jen just wants to get through her eight-month shift without going crazy from the tedium or her co-workers’ bickering. That plan crumbles when Carly discovers a strange lifeform during a routine patrol.

The small, fluid creature nestled in the base of a crater doesn’t match any of the entries in their database. Protocol says they should call for backup, but Carly insists they can deal with the lifeform themselves.

It’s a simple choice for Jen, but her mistake will unleash unimaginable horror…

…and the nearest help is three days away.

Station 331 is a short story in the five-part Cymic Parasite Breach series. Each story can be read independently.



I’ll be reviewing the first three books in the series this coming weekend on my Saturday Screams meme. I hope you stop by!

  1. Oh my, what a teaser! That sounds extremely tense, and I am so curious about what happened to Carly! A sci-fi horror is pretty original, too. I’ll be on the lookout for your review, Laura.
    Have a terrific Tuesday :)

      I love horror and science fiction and it’s awesome to find both genres wrapped together. This is such an exciting series!

  2. Kathy Martin says:

    This sounds a little too scary for me. I hope you are enjoying it. My teaser this week comes from the first book in an urban fantasy series I recently discovered – Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett. Happy reading!

  3. Beth F says:

    Yikes! Sci-fi is not my thing, but great teaser.

  4. admin says:

  5. Sounds really intense….and I do want to know more. Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “TERRIBLE VIRTUE”

  6. Silvia says:

    I read more horror than sci-fi, but this one actually sounds creepily good!

    Thanks for sharing, here’s my TT :)

  7. sjhigbee says:

    Ooo… I love the idea of the science fiction, so long as the horror isn’t too graphic or shocking. Are you enjoying it? My TT this week is also sci fic – a military adventure that I’m really enjoying…

  8. Well, now that is a teaser! :)

  9. atothewr says:

    This sounds interesting. Great teaser.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      The first three books are shorter ones and wasted no time getting into the action. Kind of predictable but fun getting there!

  10. Marilyn says:

    Interesting tease. You certainly captured my attention.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you’re having a great week.

  11. It has been awhile since I’ve read sci-fi. This sounds creepily good.

  12. Candid Cover says:

    Oh my goodness! This one has me terrified by your teaser alone! Sounds like a whirlwind of a book! I have the feeling as though I need to know if she is alright. <3

    Oh my! That’s a chilling moment!
