Teaser Tuesday – 6/4/19

tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want 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! 

The Zenana, or women’s quarter, of Daršanga palace was a world unto itself. It was the Mahrkagir’s giant, Tahmuras, who escorted me there. He said nothing along the way, and I would have wondered if he were deaf and dumb, were it not for the alacrity with which he had obeyed the Mahrkagir’s command. Tahmuras strode down the halls, descending a stair, all but ignoring me as I stumbled in his wake.

I really need to make better progress on this book, but it’s so long!

No Top Ten today because I am short on time. Hopefully I can get back to doing those on a more regular basis as well.

Please leave your teasers in comments!

  1. Good descriptive writing. Makes me curious for more after reading this scene.

  2. The privateer grinned. Again I was struck by the thought that there was something off about his features.

    “My mother was an oyster,” he said with a wink. “And I’m the pearl.”
