Teaser Tuesday with The Iron King

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!
This is one I've been wanting to get a hold of for a while. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa is the first book in the Iron Fey series. I love the concept of the Iron Fey. It's unique in the YA fairy genre even though the protagonist is failing to draw me in fully.
Here's your teaser:
"You've gone off the deep end. Time to cute back on the anime, Rob. There's no such thing as faeries." (page 58)

  4. Too bad Meghan isn't drawing you in. Just wait until you meet Ash, if you haven't yet. He should definitely draw you in... ;). Great teaser. Thanks for sharing!

    Feel free to check out my teaser here.

  15. I finished the book and it was pretty good. I wanted more of the Iron Fey, and I still didn't like the protagonist much even after the next few books. I liked Ash and Puck each for different reasons. Can't a girl have both?!

  16. And all this time I've been posting my two teaser lines directly on Golden Eagle's comment section. I didn;t know we are to post them on our own sites. Sometimes I'm a little slow.
