Teaser Tuesday: The Conjurer's Riddle by Andrea Cremer

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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!

Without breaking his stride, Grave turned, spotted the cat, and jumped. He hurtled through the air, his body crashing into the cat's. Cat and boy slammed to the ground a fury of limbs, teeth, and claws.
This week my teaser comes from The Conjurer's Riddle by Andrea Cremer. This is the second book in her alternate history series. Here is the description from Amazon:
The Revolution is beginning–and Charlotte may be on the wrong side.

In this sequel to The Inventor's Secret, Charlotte and her companions escape the British Empire, but they haven't left danger behind. In fact, if they go against the revolutionaries, they face even greater peril.

Charlotte leads her group of exiles west, plunging into a wild world of shady merchants and surly rivermen on the way to New Orleans. But as Charlotte learns more about the revolution she has championed, she wonders if she's on the right side after all. Charlotte and her friends get to know the mystical New Orleans bayou and deep into the shadowy tunnels below the city–the den of criminals, assassins and pirates–Charlotte must decide if the revolution's goals justify their means, or if some things, like the lives of her friends, are too sacred to sacrifice.

This alternate-history adventure series asks the questions: What would have happened if America had lost the Revolutionary War? And what would people be willing to do to finally taste freedom?


  1. Great cover and great teaser. I love novels with cats :-)
    Here's my TThttps://awondrousbookshelf.com/2016/06/21/teaser-tuesday-13/

  2. Such a fun teaser! Although, I am not so sure it was much fun for the boy. I haven't heard of this series before. I am really intrigued by the steampunk genre, so I may have to add this one to the old pile! I hope that your are enjoying it! :)

  3. Oooh, this looks good. I *love* alternate histories. I'll have to add this to my TBR.
    Here's my TT for this week.
    Keep the pages turning!

    Oh, dear. Whether or not the cat stands a chance, he will definitely do some real damage before the scuffle breaks up!

    I'm here from Teaser Tuesday, too. Here is my teaser for the week: http://shreddedcheddar.blogspot.com/2016/06/jmj-teaser-of-year-read-other-two.html
