Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.


“Whorls of red light played over its chest and four arms, slowly shifting to blue and back. In the upper pair of hands it held a spear. The shaft was eight feet long, but such was the modalman’s stature it was a short weapon to him. Rel stared, mute, paralyzed by anticipation of the worst. He could not fight this thing.” ~ The City of Ice by K.M McKinley pg 20
