Teaser Tuesday August 13, 2013


Hunter and the turtle.  Who is teasing who?

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!

My teaser today if from Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal.  This is the second book in a mystery series set in a slightly different Regency Period.  Here there is magic and glamour which a talented person can use to make illusions that look and feel real.  Here is the teaser:


"Because!  You move your hands here"--she waved her hands in front of her in a pattern that could not have produced any sensible expression of glamour--"to create something over here!"  She hopped to the left, nearly toppling over with the movement of the ship."  page 66

I am enjoying the series.  The mystery builds slowly and each book adds to the world building and the character development.  Pick one up if you like what I call gently mysteries.
