Teasers & Top Tens – February 28, 2023


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ambrosia at 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 Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare, book #2 in The Last Hours series.

I have been running away from you for two years. Why should I stop now? Anna thought. Thought if she had to admit it to herself, she’d been doing a poor job of running these past few weeks.

Anna is definitely a side character, but she is one of my favorite parts of this series so far. I love her!

  1. I think you’re the first person I’ve seen say they love The Starless Sea. That book made my favorites list as soon as I finished reading it. It’s so beautiful.

  2. I haven’t read any of these books yet, but they do sound good.

  3. I enjoyed The Ten Thousand Doors of January, too!

  4. A Curse So Dark and Lonely is the only one of these I’ve read and I liked it but didn’t love it, so I never read on in the series.

  5. Chain of Gold and Daughter of the Moon Goddess are both great!
    teaser from Men at Arms- “A great many rulers, good and bad and quite often dead, know what happened; a rare few actually manage, by dint of much effort, to know what’s happening. Lord Vetinari considered both types to lack ambition.”

  6. #6 was a great book! I would include it if I wrote a similar list.
