Teaser Tuesday (August 25)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My choice of the day:


Malo chuckled and the grating sound resonated through the room. “That snivelling creature would lick my arse and call it honey if he thought it would gain a flyspeck of your favour.”

from In Search of Gods and Heroes (Children of Nalowyn Book 1) by Sammy H.K. Smith, a classic fantasy adventure where gods and demons actively interact and at times derail the mortals who believe in them.

    • Yes, it’s not that snarky throughout, but that is one of the main demons reporting back to the Dark Lord. It’s a really well written, enjoyable tale. I’ll be reviewing it in due course.

      I loved your teaser – it’s always handy to get recommendations for engrossing children’s reads as a granny who spends chunks of time reading aloud:).

  1. I’m going to have to remember that phrase. 🙂 Not that I’ll ever have occasion to use it. You never know though. It’s been ages since I last read a fantasy novel like this. It does sound like it will be good.

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment:). It’s fun, isn’t it? Yes, I’m thoroughly enjoying it, though it isn’t that sharp throughout, being a really classic fantasy tale with a strong character-led emphasis. I’m really enjoying it.

    • I’m thoroughly enjoying it – but I would emphasise that it generally is more of a classic fantasy, rather than urban though very well characterised and written.
