Teaser Tuesday - Timeless, by Gail Carriger

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!

Last Tuesday, I cheated a bit and had FOUR teasers - one from each of the first four Parasol Protectorate novels.  This week, I thought it would be fun to have a couple of teasers from the fifth and final book in the series.

The Tease:
 "Only Lady Maccon's good breeding kept her from committing the vile act of involuntary purging right then and there on the reed mat.  There was something particularly horrific about knowing that, because the queen was immortal, all those places where the chair speared into her flesh must be constantly trying to heal themselves."

"So it was that the Maccons found themselves floating low above the city of Alexandria in one of the famous nomadic balloons completely at the mercy of a man to whom they had not been formally introduced."
 -Timeless, by Gail Carriger
