Teaser Tuesday - The Desert of Souls

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!


Sorry this is late today, but, this week our Tease comes from a brand new book!  How new?  Well, it's not really new, just new to me, as I started it last night!  And I'm completely hooked!  In this scene, our hero is wandering the marketplace of ancient Bagdad when a wounded man stumbles into him and falls at his feet...

The Tease:
 "Before I could draw breath, four bold rogues rounded the corner and stopped short at the heels of the wounded man.  Three wore fine clothes shabbily treated, as if they liked the look of them but did not know their proper care.  More to the point, swords were in their hands."
 -The Desert of Souls, by Howard Andrew Jones

What's your Tease?

  1. Interesting teaser. I like that the sword was almost an afterthought. My teasers are from Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris and Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. Happy reading!
