Tuesday Teaser 10-4-11

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

Okay, we established last week that I can follow the rules. This week’s TT is once again coming from a book that I am actually reading at the moment. Maybe I’m starting a trend? Anyway, I am once again late on jumping on the band wagon for a book series. There are advantages to that though. The number one being I don’t have to wait for the next book in a series to come out if the author is already 3 or 4 books into the series when I start. Nice strategy, huh? I’d been thinking about starting the Iron Fey series for a while and now that I’m almost done with the first book I’m wondering what took me so long. So without further ado, here is my teaser. Enjoy!

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Pg. 138

My mouth was suddenly dry. I stared at Oberon in growing anger. “Why?” I demanded, making him arch a slender eyebrow. “Why her? Wasn’t she already married to my dad? Did you even care about that?”

“I did not.” Oberon’s look was pitiless, unrepentant. “What do I care for human rituals? I need no permission to take what I want. Besides, had she been truly happy, I would not have been able to sway her.”

Not exactly the reunion between a daughter and a father that she didn’t know that you would expect. I’ve already got the rest of this series on my TBR list. And yes, I know, this was once again more than 2 sentences. Seems I can only follow some of the rules. 🙂
