Teaser Tuesday: Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish

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 couldn't have missed the exit yet, could I? Served me right for trusting directions from a waitress wearing fishnets and a pair of bunny ears.
This week my teaser comes from Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish. I am always up for a new urban fantasy and this one sounds great. Here is the description from Amazon:
Fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, and Linda Hamilton will flock to the kick-ass world of Owl, a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world.

Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem – and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief.

Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa’s ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa’s trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a hand basket fast…and Owl has to pick sides.


  1. Urban Fantasy is a new to me genre and I am enjoying it. This one sounds good.

  2. I've never read Urban Fantasy, but this sounds like a good story.
    My Tuesday post features LEARNIN’ THE ROPES.

  3. Yep, that's urban fantasy for you!

    Happy New Year! I have a quote from a Grisham legal thriller this week:


  4. That teaser made me laugh. I've had similar conversations with myself.

  5. LOL wonder where they are headed....

  6. This sounds fantastic. I'm looking for some urban fantasy for a reading challenge and I think I'd enjoy this series. And the title and cover are great too.
