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!)
My teaser this week is from Trickster's Girl by Hilari Bell. This book will be published Jan. 4, 2011.
This is a story that is part science fiction and part magic that takes place in 2098. Kelsa is reeling from her father's death when she meets a beautiful boy who needs her to believe in magic and undertake a quest with him to try to heal the Earth from the damage done by humankind and especially by bio-terrorists who have unleashed a biological weapon which is killing the rain forests and working its way north to kill all other trees too. The beautiful boy is Raven, a trickster god from a dimension that is also threatened by the damage done to the Earth.
"You have a very dirty mind," he said. "Not that I object to that. It's the fact that you don't believe in magic that's going to make this difficult."I just finished this book and really liked it. I recommend adding it to your wishlist.
