Teaser Tuesday, September 17, 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 is from a book I received from Netgalley; Charming (Pax Arcana #1) by Elliott James.  If the title makes you think of a fairy tale think again.  This tease sets the tone for the book.  Charming is Urban Fantasy written in the first person and John Charming is the main character.  I loved the book.  If you want to know more look for my review of Charming on September 26.

Charming (Pax Arcana, #1)"But make no mistake:  the reason there are so many stories about "Prince" Charming is that there was never one man - the Charming were an entire family line standing between humanity and all others generation  after generation, and in the old days it wa common to give any monster killer in a story royal status.  That is a heavy burden, but I carried my name proudly for as long as I was able."
