Teaser Tuesday: Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

"Sit tight," Phaelan whispered. "I'll get some help. Tanik Ozal and his crew are two blocks over at the Rude Parrot. They live for this sort of thing."
This week my teaser comes from Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin. I bought this one because I have read a few of her other books and really enjoyed them. Here is the description from GoodReads:
A girl with attitude. An all-powerful amulet.
This could only mean trouble.

My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound…

Raine is a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves. With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, she can usually take care of herself. But when her friend Quentin, a not-quite-reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necromancer, Raine finds herself wrapped up in more trouble than she cares for. She likes attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting her down is not her idea of a good time. The amulet they’re after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when Raine takes possession of the item, it takes possession of her.

Now her moderate powers are increasing beyond anything she could imagine—but is the resumé enhancement worth her soul?


  1. I don't think this one is for me. I do like the 'girl with attitude' thing. Sounds like a good read for those who enjoy fantasy.

  2. Oh this sounds cute/fun! I hope you are enjoying!

  3. Although I feel like I only get half of what is happening in the teaser I definitely like the sound of it! And who doesn't enjoy a headstrong girl and a magical amulet thrown together? Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great week!
