Teaser Tuesday – 4th July, 2017

Standard

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.
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 Fallen Kingdom – Book 3 of The Falconer series by Elizabeth May

p. 64 I turn, expecting to see the old crystal in the ruins of Derrick’s city, the crystal Lonnrach wanted so badly that he’d destroyed the pixie city to find it. What’s there instead makes me suck in a shocked breath.
Where the bloody hell did that come from?

BLURB: Aileana Kameron, resurrected by ancient fae magic, returns to the world she once knew with no memory of her past and with dangerous powers she struggles to control. Desperate to break the curse that pits two factions of the fae against each other in a struggle that will decide the fate of the human and fae worlds, her only hope is hidden in an ancient book guarded by the legendary Morrigan, a faery of immense power and cruelty. To save the world and the people she loves, Aileana must learn to harness her dark new powers even as they are slowly destroying her.

I loved the first two books in this gripping trilogy – see my review of The Falconer – and so have been waiting impatiently for this final slice of the adventure. And so far, it has started with a bang and continued building the tension. I have no idea where May is taking the story, but I’ve settled in for the ride…

    • I’m now halfway through this one – and it is every bit as gripping and epic as the other two books… I’ll look forward to reading what you think of them in due course:)

  1. I’m afraid I’ve become part of the “instant” age — I can’t start trilogies unless they’re all out. This sounds interesting and since they’re all out, I might venture into what would be a new author for me. Here’s my link for today — intro and teaser from Paulette Mahurin’s The Seven Year Dress: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1xk

    • I think that’s an intelligent response – I know I’ve been waiting for this particular book with some impatient anticipation… I do recommend that series. It’s great fun and quite gritty.

  2. AHHHHHH I can’t wait to read The Fallen Kingdom! 😀 It’s going to be a couple more weeks, since I have a “reading plan” I try to follow, but oh my goodness I’m so nervous and excited to get to it. *lol* What do you think of it so far?

  3. Magic, magic… after all I’ve heard of this writer, I’m sure if it were in a SF setting I’ll read it straight away. I’ve decided to give it a try, though, just to read something outside my comfort zone 😀
