Teaser Tuesday: Fleur by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

A couple of months ago I read the first book in this trilogy, Anna, and I teased from it. In my Teaser Tuesday post I mentioned that the book was overdue but there was no way that I wasn't going to finish the book before returning it. Funnily enough, I can say exactly the same thing about this book! Maybe I will get the trifecta when I get around to reading the third book in the trilogy!

This book is set in England and Russia around the time of the Crimean War.

My teaser comes from page 232:

"But Kirov is the Emperor's man, through and through, and you mustn't believe everything he says. Oh, he believe it all right - and I dare say the Emperor even believes it himself. There's an honourable precedent for rulers not to let one half of themselves know what the other half is thinking."
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!

Don't forget to check out my current giveaway of the upcoming Geraldine Brook's release Caleb's Crossing.

  5. Good one -- it's true that rulers often turn a blind eye to some truths. I guess you can't be or do everything. I haven't (yet?) given this trilogy a try.

  21. A trilogy is manageable. Her other series is so long! Maybe I will start here...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd love to read something by this author - I think it was her other series that's so long that I wanted to read but they weren't in ebooks. This sounds interesting as well.

  27. Never let the right hand know what the left hand is doing? Not my favorite kind of people, but a great teaser.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Crimean War?! That's not exactly a popular setting, kudos to the author for using it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Man, this sounds like a really interesting trilogy! I wanted to read some historical fiction for a while (it is HF, right?^^)

  35. Great teaser! I always like when the second book in a series lives up to my expectations.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, I do like books with Asian flavors and Emperors and stuff. I'll have to scout out your review! Thanks for introducing this book to me, and also for stopping by my TT! I agree with you--I'd HATE it if my dad bethrothed me in today's world, though maybe I wouldn't have minded back in the day... Who knows?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Rulers do tend to do that! Nice teaser ^_^

    Thanks for dropping by mine! :)
