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!)
I am reading The Emperor of Nihon-ja by John Flanagan. This is the tenth Ranger's Apprentice book. These are great middle grade/young adult fantasy adventures. This one has Horace in Nihon-ja (think feudal Japan) and in trouble. Will, Halt, Alyss and Evanlyn are off to rescue him with some Skandians. The story alternates viewpoints and settings. Both groups are having adventures. My teaser is from an attempt of pirates to overtake the Skandian ship.
"You know," he said to Halt, without any trace of a smile, "it might have been simpler to have the two girls board her with their practice swords."
They exchanged a long look, than Halt shook his head. "I needed to keep some of them alive."
