Teaser Tuesday – 6th September, 2016


TeaserTeaser 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:
The Fettered Flame – Book 2 of the Shkode trilogy by E.D.E. Bellthefetteredflame
40% Zee had not given the event any thought until now, who cared if some artists were killed in an ironic twist to their own dark obsessions? It wasn’t as if General Dronna frequented artistic events; Dronna’s sole artistic endeavours begot the spatter pattern of blood. She could not imagine her attending.

BLURB: The Fettered Flame is a genre-bending fantasy novel that continues the saga of two dying worlds, plagued by their own unique struggles for power. Follow the journeys of Cor – a woman striving to understand her powers of magic and how they connect to her past, Atesh – her contemplative dragon companion, and Jwala – a dragon plunged into a rebirth of ancient ideals.

This epic fantasy is definitely intriguing. Unfortunately, I have had a frantically busy week-end that has meant the moment I’ve picked up the book, I’ve fallen asleep… I’m hoping that I can get a bit of downtime to properly bond with the characters. It isn’t my absolutely favourite subgenre, a wide-sweeping story told via a variety of characters in third person viewpoint. However, I particularly enjoy the dragon world, where Bell’s quirky storytelling has a fascinating plotline unfolding.
