Teaser Tuesday is an intriguing meme started by Miz B over at Books and a Beat.
All you have to do is:
• 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
For this Teaser Tuesday I’m going to do something a little different: to celebrate the 10th book in Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series – ONCE BROKEN FAITH – I will indeed quote two sentences, but from two recurring characters, the sea witch Luidaeg and the King of cats Tybalt – both of them huge favorites with the readers.
Double the quotes, double the fun! 🙂
A Fetch shows up now, all these people lose their shit. Never invite a death omen to a murder party.
You have to take care of yourself. Replacing you would take a long time, and frankly, I don’t want to go to the trouble.
Tybalt raised an eyebrow. “Am I nothing but a taxi service to you?”
“No,” I said. “Danny, who actually has his license, is a taxi service. You’re more like a transporter from Star Trek. Me and you to beam up, Scotty.”
He looked at me blankly. Karen covered her mouth with one hand. Quentin started to snicker.
“Sometimes I wonder if you’ve ever actually encountered the English language,” Tybalt said […]
“How finely you pack an entire request into a single word of two syllables. Would that my name were shorter, that I might encourage you to even greater acts of brevity.”
