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
