Teaser Tuesday - A Dance with Dragons

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!

So I've finally started A Dance with Dragons.  I bought it when it came out in July, and have just been waiting to get caught up on my other reading before I started this massive tome.  I imagine that there will be several weeks worth of Teasers from this book, at least.  In this scene, while standing over a dead soldier, Dany comes to the realization that occupying and ruling a city is far different from conquering it.

The Tease:
 ""This is the first of my soldiers they have slain."
"The first," Ser Barristan warned, "but not the last."
I am still at war, Dany realized, only now I am fighting shadows.
She had hoped for a respite from the killing, for some time to build and heal."
 -A Dance with Dragons, by George R. R. Martin

What's your Tease?
