Teaser Tuesday: The Sharing Knife: Horizon by Lois McMaster Bujold

My teaser this week comes from The Sharing Knife: Horizon, which is the fourth book in the very enjoyable Sharing Knife series by Lois McMaster Bujold.

The teaser comes from page 89:
It had been so swift, Dag was barely certain what he'd sensed, but he dutifully positioned the halves on the table in front of him, edged them together the best he could, extended his ghost hand, closed his eyes, and found that strange level of perception, down and in, that he had first discovered while healing Hod. Paper, it seemed, was much like felted cloth, a mass of tiny threads all matted together - torn away from one another, now

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  22. Lois is one of my fav authors - her books are pretty fantastic, especially the Vorkosigan saga and the more recent stuff...I think I ve read the first two in this series that you are reading, but had no idea a fourth was even.
    Thanks for the teaser!

  30. Oh, how cool that you got to meet Lois McMaster Bujold Violet. I am debating whether I should start the Vorkosigan series or not at the moment.

    Actually Alice, he is psychically putting it back together again! Even cooler!

    Samstillreading, yes it is a fantasy series.

    Aisle B, definitely a fantasy read, not wild west, although I guess in some ways there are some elements that could be seen to be country.

    Dag and Fawn are great characters aren't they Renee.

    Thanks to everyone for stopping by!
