First of all, I thought today was Wednesday but after taking a look at my reader, I see that it is in fact Tuesday as my reader is filled with Teaser Tuesday posts. I haven’t done these in awhile so I thought I’d play.
TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. Okay, I shared a bit more than that.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!
“The ebony clock concluded its striking. It was midnight. It was 1848. Men used their knives to slash through the black-dyed walls and strips of wind-tormented canvas were immediately whipped into the flames and torches and tripods out on the ice. Flames leapt skyward and almost immediately engaged the rigging.”
The Terror by Dan Simmons.
I’ve just started the book but I can tell that it’s going to be a very intense read.
