Tuesday Teaser (20)

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 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:

A high wall cut through the city before them, casting a long shadow over the squalid buildings of the slum.  There was a wide pit in front, freshly dug and lined with sharpened stakes.  A narrow bridge led across to a tall gate, set between looming towers.  The heavy doors were open, but a dozen men stood before them: sweating Union soldiers in steel caps and studded leather coats, harsh sun glinting on their swords and spears.

Before They Are Hanged
The First Law: Book Two
By Joe Abercrombie

  4. Krista - I am looking forward to this book as well. :) I think I am going to look at my notes on the last one to refresh my memory just a little, then dig in tomorrow.

Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
