Teaser Tuesday 30th August 2016.


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted on Books and a Beat.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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!

My Choice: The World Raven (The Long War Book 4) by A. J. Smith.


Page 39:

He wrapped his arms loosely around her neck and their bodies entwined into a tight embrace. ‘I don’t want you to die,’ he whispered. Anddon’t want to die. I want something of us to remain.’

‘You should probably try to keep me alive then. I’m the one who carries the child. You’re expendable.’

They kissed passionately, between shared laughter. Gwen kept hold of the blanket, making sure their naked shoulders were covered, and the laughter slowly turned into moans of pleasure. Somewhere in the corners of her mind, they were in that warm sitting room in Roman Haran. Or maybe now it was Ro Tiris. Somewhere, a child played across red carpets, and happy folk enjoyed the summer warmth of a world at peace.

Book Blurb:

All that was dead will rise. All that now lives will fall. The final, epic battle for the Lands of Ro.

The dead god is waking. His power-mad priestess has deployed a mass of men and beasts onto the plains of Ro Weir. Faced with this black swarm, the last remnants of a nation crumbles and falls. This is the final battle for the mortal lands of Ro.

Far to the north, the ice men of Rowanoco muster their Exemplars against the witch’s assassins. In the blistering southern deserts, a squire with no master walks unscathed through a poisoned city. And, in the halls beyond the world, a thrice-born man dares to tread the path of Giants…

  1. That must’ve killed you to have to copy a scene with sex into your precious blog post. Oh the horror! 🙈 Did your eyes burn as you read it, darling? 😘 This is the book they sent you the other day. Right? I meant to post one with my new boyfriend Jorg today but fell asleep last night. 😴

    1. Ha but it’s not smut! And, no that’s not aimed at your books it’s aimed at Nevernight, this is generally how sex is written in fantasy, abit more graphic for grimdark books but you see now why I commented on Nevernight’s explicitness! 🙂

      1. Nevernight was pure smut. That’s a fact! Even I was like no she didn’t. And it takes a lot to surprise me. This scene was nothing compared to what I read. I just didn’t think your poor eyes could handle any romance or sex whatsoever. 😂

  2. This is a fun and neat idea! I love how this can hype books and give people a taste into what the book may be like. Much better than just reading the back 🙂 Your teaser is on point!!! Glad to hear you are enjoying the series and it will be one I will nee to look into.
