Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:
- 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.
- 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!
This week's Teaser Tuesday comes from page 161 of Tiger Claws by John Speed. I read the prequel to this book (The Temple Dancer) a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, partially due to a very unusual setting - 17th century India. I am not sure that I am enjoying this one quite so much as, even though it has some of the same characters, it feels very different! I also had a bit ofa hard time choosing a teaser that wasn't either incomprehensible without at least some explanation, or a spoiler, but I think I found one in the end.
