Teaser Tuesdays (5)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly event.

Sponsored by MizB of Should be Reading.

Here's how it works:

Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)

Open the book to any random page

Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.

Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!

(Don't Give Too Much Away) Just enought to pique our interests.

List the book and author so other participants can get their hand on it if they choose to read it as well.

This Week:

If Logen had been the one clinging to the Shanka's foot, he would most likely have thought, "My life depends on this leg I'm hanging from-best not take any chances." A man would rather save himself than kill his enemy. Trouble was that the Shanka didn't think that way, and Logen knew it. So it wasn't much of a surprise when it opened its big mouth and sank its teeth into his calf.

The Blade Itself

the first law: book one

By Joe Abercrombie


  1. Great tease this week. I like a good "bite" every now and then. It keeps me on my toes!

  2. Wow. Sounds intriguing - 'people' with different ways of thinking, a dangerous situation, violence...

    Great teaser! Thanks for coming by my blog earlier, too!

  3. Thanks for stopping by Ryan & Celi.a!

    This "bite" does seem to keep Logen on his "toes". lol.

    It does seem as this book has a lot of danger in it. I am not very far but so far it seems this way.

    Thanks again for coming by! Celi.a it is no problem to stop by your blog, thats part of the fun!

  4. Now I'm wondering if the Shanka is an animal, or just a really weird person...

    That teaser certainly makes me curious!

  5. La Coccinelle - I will have to let you know when I get more of a feel for these "creatures". I am not 100% sure yet. I am only 44 pages into the book and haven't come across them fully again yet.

    Deb - thank you so much for stopping by! So far I am enjoying to book, thank you.

  6. I can't wait to get started on this book! Great teaser!

  7. Hey, I wrote a few replys over on BandN just to let you know...

    And thanks so much for sending that email!
