Teaser Tuesday - A Memory of Light, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

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!

This week, Nynaeve struggles to help Rand as he fights a duel, and she suddenly realizes that there is more to this fight than what she can see.  There are hidden elements, and possibly a trap...

The Tease:
"Nynaeve pressed her hand against (the woman's) wound, feeling helpless.  Dared she call for Rand to release her from the circle?  If she did, Moridin would undoubtedly turn on her and attack (the woman).  What to do?  If this woman died, Rand would lose control.
That, likely, would be the end of him...and of the Last Battle."
 -The Wheel of Time, Book 14: A Memory of Light,
by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

  2. I like Robert Jordan's books, but I haven't gotten around to book 14 yet. I'm on book 5, I think. Need to complete this series!

  7. Lots of drama in your teaser. The character's name (Nynaeve) stopped me, however, and I think I'd stumble over it every time I came across it in the book, wondering how it should be pronounced. Did it bother you?
    My teaser is from THE DAY AFTER YESTERDAY.

    1. I got used to it fairly quickly, actually. There are many common names in the series, but also many unfamiliar ones as well. I don't know if this is correct, but in my head Nynaeve sounds like "Nin" (like Pin) "ave" (like cave).
