Teaser Tuesday: The Iron Daughter

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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Photobucket

When I opened the door, Tiaothin, no longer a goat or cat, stared at me and broke into a toothy leer. “This way,” she hissed, backing into the icy corridor. Her yellow eyes seemed to float in the darkness. “The queen awaits.”

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa – Page 20

Check back later this week to see my review!

  5. Here's a teaser from The Silver Phoenix (Cindy Pon). "The eunuchs said the windows were ceiling height to allow the concubines their privacy, but Jin Lian knew it was also a way to keep them trapped. These quarters had walls taller than any courtyard tree."

    Sarah had a sleepless night. The day kept replaying in her mind: Laurie's bloodcurdling screams; the torn picture; the policeman at the door...

  13. "Tiaothin, no longer a goat or cat" has to be one of the greatest combination of words I have read in a long time! Thanks for that.

  30. I really like your blog! I'm a new author and have enjoyed this new experience. I find that it's the most difficult and most rewarding. I'm also a graphic designer and love having that creative outlet as well.
