Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone 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.


  1. Great teaser and great story! I have an Ilona Andrews book in my teasers too. My teasers are from Ties to the Blood Moon by Robin F. Waldrop and Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews. Happy reading!

  2. I've been meaning to read this for awhile now but something always gets in the way. It just went up on my TBR pile.

    My TT

  3. Interesting teaser. Never heard of this. Thanks for sharing.

I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
