Teaser Tuesday - Red Seas Under Red Skies - One more time!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

Ok - I'm starting to feel a little embarrassed that it's taking me so long to read this novel.  It's not that long of a book, and I am totally loving it, so please don't think that the length of time it's taking me to read it has any bearing on whether it's good or not.  It's GOOD!  I've just been busy with lots of stuff that don't include reading.  But I'm almost to the end and so without further ado I present one more Teaser from Red Seas Under Red Skies!

The Tease:
"Even an experienced thief will find occasion to learn new tricks if he lives long enough.  That morning and afternoon, Locke had learned how to properly loot a captured ship. " - Red Seas Under Red Skies (The Gentlemen Bastards #2), by Scott Lynch.

So....What's your Tease?

  3. Locke sounds like he's an awesome character! Great teaser!

  4. Wonder what were those new tricks ... LOL.

  5. @Kah Woei Truly, I had no idea being a pirate was so much work! LOL!

  6. @Corrine Hiya! Locke has quickly become one of my favorite fantasy characters - he's quick on his feet, he's witty and smart, charming when he needs to be, and even though he's first and foremost a thief, he has a very strong moral and ethical code!

  7. This is a great teaser! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sometimes it takes me forever to finish a book too and its not because its boring its just because sometimes I have to work too! :)

  8. Great teaser. I don't worry about how long it takes me to read a book any longer. Between real life and enjoying what I'm reading, the time is well-spent!
