Teaser Tuesdays (9)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly event.
Sponsored by MizB of Should be Reading.

(I am rotating from Teaser Tuesday and Where are you? on Tuesdays. This week is the teaser.)
Here's how it works:

Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)
Open the book to any random pageShare 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.
Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!(Don't Give Too Much Away)
Just enough 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:

Charles shook his head. "No, absolutely not. Certainly, Xhum Y'Zir used them as such - but even his mechoservitors were intended for higher purposes than war."
Canticle
By Ken Scholes

This is page 243. This is a teaser for me as well being I have not got this far in the book. Though I do have an idea of what they are talking about...

  1. I have no clue what was just said, but mechoservitors is just a cool word.

  2. I have not heard of this one but I do agree with Ryan, mechoservitors is a cool word.

  3. Mechoservitors? I don't know what those are (but I can guess).

    I'm a little thrown by Xhum Y'Zir as well. How'd you like to have to go through life with a name like that?

  4. Okay, Mechoservitors are metal men that function by way of a constant running steam system with a powerful sun rock. But, in book one (Lamentation) Xhum Y'Zir is a wizard from long ago who destroyed a whole section of the world by a very powerful spell. But this spell has been found and used in book one to destroy a city that housed all the technology and knowledge held. But the question is who destroyed this city, is it the one who they thought it was, or is it someone else?

    So, I think "they" are discussing how these metal men where created for war but as well as much more than that.

    I do have to agree I really like the word as well. And yes to go through life with a name like, well I may not be so nice either.

    Did that help anyone? These books are actually very very good.

  6. LOL... I agreed with Ryan and then I read what it means Melissa.... wow - that is huge! It sounds like something Ryan would use as a Balderdash definition :)

    Great teaser!
