Teaser Tuesday: The God of the Hive by Laurie R. King

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!

I am just getting ready to begin The God of the Hive by Laurie R. King. I enjoy this mystery series about the exploits of a retired Sherlock Holmes and his much younger wife Mary Russell. I got this book back in April and wanted to save it until I had time to devote to it. It got buried in the TBR stack and just resurfaced.
I felt as if someone fleeing Vesuvius with me had stopped to fret about the carpets. The obituary had buried any lesser consideration: To my mind, the Brothers case was in a box and temporarily closed away. Who would worry about a mere killer when the world was being engulfed?
This comes from page 150 and I have no idea what is going on. I need to start this book now to find out.

What is sitting next to you?

    I have two teasers this week.

  10. Very interesting and Holmes never disappoints so the book should be a cool read, enjoy!

    I did not do a post but my teaser is from Kat Richardson’s “Greywalker series book #2-Poltergeist” page 207 sentence #5 & 6..

    I needed a closer look at Celia. In the confusion, I bolted toward the observation room door as the board full of Christmas lights in the seance room exploded, raining colored glass and sparks over Ana, Cara and Wayne.

    My teaser is from Under a War-Torn Sky by L.M. Elliot.

  12. Okay, I'm bewildered. Who indeed? Haha Interesting... And engulfed in what, exactly? Water? Shoes? Little Hello Kitty erasers?

  15. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a recent T.T. and I thought you'd like to hear from me.
