Teaser Tuesday: Dark Matter

This week my teaser lines come from Dark Matter, the new novel by Blake Crouch (Crown, July 2016). This quote is from the first page of Chapter One:
Standing happy and slightly drunk in my kitchen, I'm unaware that tonight is the end of all of this. The end of everything I know, everything I love.
Yeah, I know that sounds like a spoiler — but it's from the book's first page, so I don't think it's giving anything away. I've read one other book by Blake Crouch — Pines, the first book in his Wayward Pines trilogy — and really enjoyed it; so I'm hoping this one is just as good.

Don't really care much for that cover (the Kindle edition). Boring, and it sort of makes me dizzy if I look at it too long. Here's a shot of one of the international paperback editions (Hungary) that's a little more interesting:

  1. Wow it seems dark. Lol given the name "Dark Matter". Interesting teaser
    Here's mine

  2. Oh, yes, the second cover is much better....and I now want to know what happens to the character after the night that is the end of everything....

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “LEAVE ME”

  3. Blake can write some good ones. I've not read this one yet. The second cover is better, but I'd grab it either way!
