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 Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I actually finished this at the weekend and am on to the second book in the series now but I loved it so much I couldn’t resist using it for this weeks teaser. I haven’t stuck strictly to the random page rule as it’s kind of difficult to find two sentences that don’t contain swearing 🙂
Names speak to the namer as much as the named. Maybe I don’t want folks knowing who I am. Maybe I like being underestimated.
pg57 Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Destined to destroy empires, Mia Covere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.
Six years later, the child raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise she made on the day that she lost everything.
But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and demons at the heart of a murder cult.
The Red Church is no Hogwarts, but Mia is no ordinary student.
The shadows love her. And they drink her fear.
