Teaser Tuesday with The Snow Queen's Shadow

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!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
It's taken me a little while to get to this next book in Jim C. Hines fairy tale series. He does a wonderful mash-up of the old fairy tales we know and love, but in a fun and original way. Plus, the princesses are the heroes. Who doesn't love a self rescuing princess?
Here's your teaser:
Snow pointed to the broken shards. Wings of ice twitched, then fluttered to life. Insects of snow and glass, no larger than wasps, swarmed toward the Harbor-master. (page 69)

  10. Now that sounds interesting. I wonder if having a blow dryer would be a great weapon then.
