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!
This week’s teaser comes from Stain by A.G. Howard.
Neverdark — Nerezeth’s arboretum — had always been a beacon in their world of midnight. Other than the lead-glass window at the top that allowed a view of the outer night sky and the blink of dawn occurring once each day, the domed enclosure was forged of solid iron and filled with daylight. Or at least a reasonable facsimile. Thousands upon thousands of fireflies — fed with a special mix of pollen and liquid sunshine smuggled in from the day realm — drifted like infinitesimal stars along the shrine’s curved roof and everywhere the gardens and meadows flourished.
I am very much loving this story world that she’s created. A world of day and a world of night, constantly at war. I have loved A.G. Howard’s writing ever since reading her Splintered series, so I was excited to read this one for the Disney-A-Thon.
Please share your teasers in comments!
