Teaser Tuesday – 1st March 2016

Teaser

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
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!

This is my choice of the day:
Rook Song – Book 2 of The Gaia Chronicles by Naomi Foyle

81%: Her son was a new star rising over the world – even the temple tent priest had said so, leading daily prayers for the safe deliverance of a boy who reminded his elders not to abandon their dreams. And all week neighbours had given her respect.

BLURB
Astra Ordott is in exile. Evicted from Is-Land for a crime she cannot regret, she has found work in an rook songancient fortress in Non-Land: headquarters of the Council of New Continents, the global body charged with providing humanitarian aid to the inhabitants of this toxic refugee camp.

Recovering from a disorienting course of Memory Pacification Treatment, Astra struggles to focus on her overriding goals – to find her Code father and avenge the death of her Shelter mother, Hokma.

But can the CONC compound director, the ambiguous Major Thames, protect her from the hawk-eyed attentions of her old enemies? And who in this world of competing agendas can she trust? The deeper Astra ventures into this new world, the more she realises her true quest may be to find herself.

I loved the first book Astra, and was delighted when I got the opportunity to read this for Netgalley – it is a cracking read and I will be reviewing it as soon as I’ve completed it.
