Teaser Tuesday - The Way of Kings

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!

One of the main viewpoint characters in this novel is a young woman, Shallan, who has been taken as a ward and student of the Princess Jasnah.  In this tease, Shallan contemplates her escape after committing a theft.

The Tease:
 "It seemed a fitting deadline.  That would put her departure at three weeks after stealing the Soulcaster, as she'd told Nan Balat to expect.  If Jasnah hadn't reacted to the Soulcaster switch by then, Shallan would have to take it to mean that she wasn't under suspicion."
 -The Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson
