Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Ambrosia @ The Purple Booker.
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!
A Might Dawn by Theodore Brun:
Hakan, son of Haldan, chosen son of the Lord of the Northern Jutes, swears loyalty to his father in fire, in iron, and in blood. But there are always shadows that roam. When a terrible tragedy befalls Hakan’s household he is forced to leave his world behind. He must seek to pledge his sword to a new king. Nameless and alone, he embarks on a journey to escape the bonds of his past and fulfil his destiny as a great warrior.
Whispers of sinister forces in the north pull Hakan onwards to a kingdom plagued by mysterious and gruesome deaths. But does he have the strength to do battle with such dark foes? Or is death the only sane thing to seek in this world of blood and broken oaths?
Teaser from Page 229:
He swore and spat into the dirt. What was another lord to him now? What did any of it really matter? What were blood-oaths or honour or loyalty? Maybe he should just wander the earth. a man cursed. An outcast. A stranger with a sword.
I’m only around 50 pages into the book but so far I’m finding it to be a great read. It’s labelled as historical fantasy but so far we’ve not really had any glimpses of the fantasy element and it’s far more akin to standard historical fiction, damn good though. And that teaser is awesome, makes me want to read quicker and find out what happens!!!!
While not a usual occurrence I am also adding a link to a post that I posted yesterday, it’s about author harassment of bloggers and is an important read:
