Teaser Tuesday: Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week my teaser comes from Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier. I got this ARC at ALA and then learned that it is the sequel to Shadowfell which is sitting on my TBR mountain. Here is the description of this July 9 release:
Neryn has finally found the rebel group at Shadowfell, and now her task is to seek out the elusive Guardians, vital to her training as a Caller. These four powerful beings have been increasingly at odds with human kind, and Neryn must prove her worth to them. She desperately needs their help to use her gift without compromising herself or the cause of overthrowing the evil King Keldec.

Neryn must journey with the tough and steadfast Tali, who looks on Neryn's love for the double agent Flint as a needless vulnerability. And perhaps it is. What Flint learns from the king will change the battlefield entirely—but in whose favor, no one knows. 
Three Guardians to find, all in different corners of Alban; three branches of knowledge to master; and then, the disparate talents of humankind and Good Folk to be brought into an alliance strong enough to stand up against the might of Keldec and his Enforcers...all  that in a scant year and a half? When I had thus far failed to exchange even one word with the Folk Below? It was...I must not say impossible. I was one of Regan's Rebels now, and I must not even think it. "I'll try my best," I said.  


  1. Trying to understand.....haven't read much Fantasy. Would like to read it.

  2. Even though I do not read fantasy as a rule this teaser has intrigued me. My TT comes from Calculated In Death by J.D. Robb: http://meandu-justthinking.blogspot.ca/2013/08/teaser-tuesdays.html
