Terrific Teaser Tuesday #2

literati_rain66 Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

This weeks' teaser is from The Iron King, by Julie Kagawa. 
"The chimera roared, three voices rising to a deafening shriek. The crowd scattered as the monster gathered its hindquarters under it and leaped into the fray. It came down beside a fleeing redcap and lashed out with a claw-tipped paw, catching the faery in the stomach and disemboweling it instantly." (page 172)

Here is how it works:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2 or 3) “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!)
- Remember to show the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

" 'We've just been in a riot!' she announced to proprietor Peter Ramsay as the patrons hushed to hear more. 'The advocates and the medical students had a row over who should play romeo at the playhouse tonight.' " p. 138 from Island of the Swans by Ciji Ware.

I'm actually cheating since I just finished this book last night. I need to hurry myself back to the bookstore and get something that will last a little longer.

@ SM_Schmidt- Since you just read it, is it one you'd recommend? I've never heard of it. :)

@Amy - I'm enjoying it. :) Are you enjoying Accidentally Dead?

It's a good read but I'd recommend with care. I probably wouldn't mention it to a few friends who are more conservative with their reading tastes since there are some adult themes.

Adult themes don't sway me. :) I'll add it to my To Be Read list then. :)
