Teaser Tuesday - Heartless

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!

 The Tease:
 "Motioning Ivy to stand, Alexia handed her the handle (of the parasol) and said, "Spin the parasol three times and repeat after me: I shield in the name fashion.  I accessorize for one and all. Pursuit of truth is my passion.  This I vow by the great parasol."
 - Heartless: The Parasol Protectorate, Book the Fourth, by Gail Carriger

  5. @Enbrethiliel Yes Ivy is the one with the horrendous hats - and apparently much cleverer than we all thought!! In this scene Alexia is "inducting" Ivy into "The Parasol Protectorate" with this most sacred vow.
    I love it!
