Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
-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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I am currently reading Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews, the third book in the Kate Daniels series. This is working out really well; I was reading Kate Daniels last Tuesday as well, and I get to keep sharing quotes from one of my favorite series!
Unfortunately I can't share my absolute favorite conversation from the entire series because of spoilers, but this one is pretty spectacular too. Sorry it's a little longer than regulation, but it is the sheer essence of awesomeness, so that's okay :)
"His Majesty needs a can-I girl anyway. And I'm not it."
"A can-I girl?" Andrea frowned.
I leaned back. " 'Can I fetch you your food, Your Majesty? Can I tell you how strong and mighty you are, Your Majesty? Can I pick out your fleas, Your Majesty? Can I kiss your ass, Your Majesty? Can I...' "
It dawned on me that Raphael was sitting very still. Frozen, like a statue, his gaze fixed on the point above my head.
"He's standing behind me, isn't he?"
If you haven't read this series yet, you really should. It's brilliant.
