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!)
Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock for review from NetGalley. I had read Princess Ben and thought it was OK and I was willing to give Murdock another try. This one takes place in the same world and has a unique style. It is told from a variety of viewpoints and consists of diary entries, encyclopedia entries, letters, a play and a couple of books written well after the events of the story.
Keep in mind that my teaser is from the eARC and may be different in the final form of the book.
The history of the Empire of Lax would not be complete without the chronicles of its most revered pets: the elkhound Steadfast, whose life was immortalized in the ten opera Paws of Honor (performed only once); the poodle Brownie, who in mistaking approaching soldiers for tree squirrels alerted Castle Underjoy to the imminent attack; the Pekingese Darling, who inspired the foundation of the Darling College for Women in Gebuhr. None of these canines, however, matches the cat Escoffier, the only animal ever to be awarded the Medal of Lax for service to the Empire.
