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!
My teaser this week comes from the newest book by Kate Elliott - Cold Magic. This is the beginning of a new series which is a steampunk fantasy in an alternate world based on the geography of Earth but not the history. This is my first book by Kate Elliott and I am enjoying the rich language and history.
Bee and I learned that lesson young: It's easier to get away with things you're not supposed to be doing if no one suspects you can even attempt them. Tell no one. Not ever.I also just came across a second quote that would be a good teaser:
Wouldn't it be easier to be dead than alone? Yet my heart beat too strongly to give up. What I felt was not precisely anger, nor was it blinding grief. It was something deeper, and more ancient, as determined as rock as rooted as the great trees whose spirits animate the forest.
I would not die for their convenience.
