Teaser Tuesday for July 12th

Teaser Tuesday is here again! Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, this is a weekly book-oriented meme, and is easy to participate in:


  • 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!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm reading Patrick Rothfuss' newest book, The Wise Man's Fear (Book Two of The Kingkiller Chronicles). Awesome epic fantasy. I've been waiting a while for it. I've even met Rothfuss at Gen Con. He's a great guy, so nice. It's a big book, though, at 994 pages. Big as in quantity and quality. So make sure you have the time to devote to it. Here's your teaser:

The Maer's letter of introduction had described me as, "a discerning young man of good education and diverse useful qualities." While this was perfectly true, it also made me sound like the most wretchedly useless court dandy in existence. (page 505)

  3. Nice teaser! I almost feel as though I may not be smart enough for this book though;)

    Thanx for stopping by the wastelands!

  4. Started Game of Thrones by George R R Martin, which I'm loving. Might have to try the one you mentioned.

    A foot of shattered antler, tines snapped off, all wet with blood.
