Tuesday Teaser: Mouse and Dragon by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller




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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Mouse and Dragon
by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
Publication: Baen Books (June 15, 2010
What I have learned is -- mark me now! -- life is not safe. Random action threatens us all. The choices we have are between fear and boldness, between joy and terror. If at all possible, I believe it is necessary to choose joy. One may survive no longer, nor ever be safe, but one's life will be worth living.
This is a re-read for me. I keep finding more in it to think about and to love. I am reading the eARC available from Baen Books.

  3. I'll keep an eye out for it when it's released. My library's pretty good about getting new science fiction. My teaser is from Un Lun Dun.
