Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
This week my teaser comes from Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton which I received from NetGalley. It’s the sequel to Rebel of the Sands which I read last year and enjoyed but didn’t love. This however, I did love. It’s full of magic and adventure, legends and myths and has some of the best world building I’ve come across. There’s also quite a bit of intrigue and betrayal and quite a few surprises.
Warning: As this is a sequel there are spoilers in the blurb for the first book (the teaser is spoiler free)
And just like that, everyone was looking at me. If I’d known I was doomed to get this much attention I might’ve brushed my hair.
~ 85% Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
This is not about blood or love. This is about treason.
Nearly a year has passed since Amani and the rebels won their epic battle at Fahali. Amani has come into both her powers and her reputation as the Blue-Eyed Bandit, and the Rebel Prince’s message has spread across the desert – and some might say out of control. But when a surprise encounter turns into a brutal kidnapping, Amani finds herself betrayed in the cruellest manner possible.
Stripped of her powers and her identity, and torn from the man she loves, Amani must return to her desert-girl’s instinct for survival. For the Sultan’s palace is a dangerous one, and the harem is a viper’s nest of suspicion, fear and intrigue. Just the right place for a spy to thrive… But spying is a dangerous game, and when ghosts from Amani’s past emerge to haunt her, she begins to wonder if she can trust her own treacherous heart.
Happy Reading Everyone
