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 Guns of Empire (The Shadow Campaign Book 4) by Django Wexler.
“Excuse me?” Marcus said.
“The Queen,” Andy said. “I think she likes you.”
“I would hope,” Marcus said, “that I have proven worthy of her trust.”
Andy gave him an exasperated look. “I mean I think she likes you. You know. How a girl likes a boy?” She pursed her lips speculatively. “You do know about that, right? See, when a girl and a boy like each other, or maybe have just had too much to drink, they–”
“Andy,” Marcus growled.
“Do you know anything about Marcus’ sister?”
“No,” Sothe said. “But I imagine I can find out.”
As the roar of the guns subsides and the smoke of battle clears, the country of Vordan is offered a fragile peace. After their shattering defeats at the hands of brilliant General Janus bet Vhalnich, the opposing powers have called all sides to the negotiating table in hopes of securing an end to the war. Queen Raesinia of Vordan is anxious to see the return of peace, but Janus insists that any peace with the implacable Sworn Church of Elysium is doomed to fail. For their Priests of the Black, there can be no truce with heretics and demons they seek to destroy, and the war is to the death.
Soldiers Marcus d’Ivoire and Winter Ihernglass find themselves caught between their general and their queen. Now, each must decide which leader truly commands their loyalty and what price they might pay for final victory. And in the depths of Elysium, a malign force is rising and defeating it might mean making sacrifices beyond anything they have ever imagined.
