Teaser Tuesday

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!)

From chapter 11 of Academ's Fury, book two of the Codex Alera, by Jim Butcher, his high fantasy series.


"The bull yawned, scarcely noticing what must have been half a ton of burden the two earth-crafters had casually lifted into place."

"She pressed her hand against her lower belly, and could almost feel the nearly invisible scars from the pockmarks the disease had left."


  1. Great teaser! I'm intrigued--what is the bull carrying, and what was the disease?

    I need to get around to reading something by Jim Butcher one of these days . . .

  2. Hmm I'm curious now if the she that pressed her belly is the bull? After all it is fantasy! Thanks for stopping over at Peggy's Post

  3. I would love to tell you what happens next ..... but no spoilers!

  4. Oh.. intriguing! This is all new to me too, so I'm even more interested in what's going on! Great choice. Hope you're enjoying it!

    My teaser is from the wonderful and mysterious novel The Night Circus.

  5. I love this series! Great teasers!!

    Here's mine:

  6. Very nice! Great choice. Hope you're enjoying the book. Thanks for sharing.
