Teaser Tuesday: Clockwork Angel

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:
 
“"The law protects us. We surrender to you. The Law-“
“You have broken the law,” snarled Benedict. “Therefore its protection no longer extends to you. The sentence is death."”
Page 253 of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

  1. Dun dun dun. I liked this book, but not as much as the Mortal Instruments series. What do you think?

    Here's my teaser tuesday for this week.

  22. This one was one of my favorites. I read it before I read the MI series, so it is still my first love. Can't wait for December! Here's my teaser for the week.

  25. love the teaser, love the book—not a fan of Gabriel, though but I'm biased. I want Clockwork Prince so bad right now! Maybe I should just reread this to hold me over.
