Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along, just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page.
• Share two “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 tease for today is from The Unseen Promise, by Ellen Mae Franklin
He was alone, in the shadows, full of loathing and odious contempt, and as the room emptied Drakite stepped up to the cauldron and spat. A gleaming shard of hate crept across his face; he had given up his gift in that spitting. It was a well-loved deposit of curiosity and chaos, a glob of ruination for this world of theirs. He threw back his head and laughed.
I’ve only just started reading The Unseen Promise, but I have to say I am impressed. It’s a very well-written fantasy book, and seems full of intrigue, curses, vengeance and retribution. So far, it looks to be a definite 5 star contender. I’ll post the review when I’m done.
