Teaser Tuesday – 24th July, 2018 #Brainfluffbookblog #TeaserTuesday

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:

Like a Boss – Book 2 of the Windswept series by Adam Rakunas

p. 150. Saarien walked right up to me. “If you’re going to hit me again, please don’t hit me in the face.”
“I’m not going to hit you again. Though I hope you don’t give me a reason to.”
He nodded. “I heard what happened. I’m so glad you’re all right.”
“I’ll bet.” The goons formed a cordon around us, pushing him way too close to me.

BLURB: After buying her favourite rum distillery and settling down, she thought she’d heard the last of her arch nemesis, Evanrute Saarien. But Saarien, fresh out of prison for his misdeeds in Windswept, has just fabricated a new religion, positioning himself as its holy leader. He’s telling his congregation to go on strike, to fight the system. And unfortunately, they’re listening to him.

This doesn’t have the same breathless energy of the first book and has taken me a while to get into it. But I am enjoying the investigation into the economic and political aspects of this colony world – normally it’s a subject more lightly dealt with, rather than being the engine that drives the action. So I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes…

  1. Glad to hear the pace is picking up. In my teaser, he has changed into a rather large cat rather than a dog. I wasn’t sure if putting that in the entry would have been too spoilerish, but since you asked =0) And thanks for coming by.

  2. Just got your book #3. Delighted! I didn’t know it was out as I am returning to life quite slowly, and unfortunately haven’t visited any blogs for a long time. So my current read is Breathing Space: Sunblinded 3 🙂

    • Yes – the first book was a cracking read… This one is taking time to get going, but given the subject matter is about the economics and industrial relations, I’ll cut Rakunas some slack…

  3. The title of this book really made me laugh – totally unrelated to the book of course and related to a game called Fortnite and a little dance move that the characters perform called flossing – my daughter had a bag with ‘floss like a boss’ – which is why this made me smile.
    Anyway,…… nobody expects an essay.
    Lynn 😀
