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!


So far I'm really enjoying this book, it's very entertaining!  In this scene our heroes race after thieves who have kidnapped a girl and stolen some valuable - and potentially dangerous - items.  The thieves have already destroyed one of Asim's boats with magic while on the river, and he contemplates what should happen if they meet again on the ocean...

The Tease:
 "Sails shone like white wings here and there on the horizon, and I wondered if any of them might belong to the thieves, and if so, whether we might face a great flaming hand aboard this vessel. 
There would be no swimming ashore from here."
 -The Desert of Souls, by Howard Andrew Jones
