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 Grey Sister, the second book in Mark Lawrence’s Book of the Ancestor trilogy. I finished this at the end of last week and absolutely loved it. So much happened in it and that ending!!!! I honestly don’t know how I’m going to manage the wait for the final book.
Quite how she could have been there unseen Nona couldn’t fathom. True, her range coat was bark-patterned, but you couldn’t hold a feather over your head and expect people to believe you were a hen.

(Warning this may include some very mild spoilers for Red Sister)
In Mystic Class Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.
All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a thwarted assassin, the ambition of a would-be empress wielding the Inquisition like a blade, and the vengeance of the empire’s richest lord.
As the world narrows around her, and her enemies attack her through the system she has sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pull of friendship, revenge, ambition, and loyalty.
And in all this only one thing is certain.
There will be blood.
