Teaser Tuesdays (6)

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:

As Logen picked his way carefully across the slippery stone he found himself wondering, through force of habit, how you could storm this place. You couldn't. Not with a thousand picked men. There was only a narrow shelf of rock before the door, no room to set a ladder or swing a ram.

The Blade Itself

  2. Great Teaser! We have gotten very lucky not to end up with the same teaser! LOL!

    Mine is up as well here

  3. Great teaser from a book I'm still not sure I will read. You and Krista are sure getting me closer to do so though.

  4. great teaser, I bet he finds a way in

  5. Thank you all for stopping by!

    Krista, I think one of these days we are going to get caught with the same teaser. So many pages and so many words, just never know...

    Ryan, One of these days we are going to get you to read the same book as us and discuss it with us as we go. We have fun with it, so you'll have to join in with us at some point.

    Deb, With what I am reading of this character I wouldn't put it past him - he will find a way in to anything.

  6. I found your comment over at Krista's blog and had to come over and check out yours. Great teaser!

  7. Jackie, the book has a darker side to it. There is a torturer, and to do a 2 sentence teaser or short paragraph of these parts it would seem rather dark. Though when you read it as a whole with the book, I don't think it sounds as dark as it would by itself.

    Thus far in the book I am liking it, though.

  8. The cover is cool, too (I know, don't judge a book...). I've added it to the TBR list...so maybe one day, lol.

  9. Great Jackie! Glad to hear you have added it to your tbr list. I know the feeling of one day... I have an increasing large list that keeps growing. LOL! I will some day get through them...

    I do hope you enjoy it when you get there! I am not completely done with the book yet (well, not even 1/2 way yet). But I am really getting into it.

    Good Reading to you!

  10. Sounds like there is a storming ahead of him, aka a mission impossible!

  11. Logen seems to have a huge mission impossible ahead of him. Glad to see you around Nikola. I do hope your exams went well.
