Teaser Tuesday - Theft of Swords, by Michael J Sullivan

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!


The last few weeks I've been reading a lot of short stories and novellas, but this week I've started something a little more substantial that I've been wanting to read for quite awhile - Theft of Swords, Volume One of the Riyria Revelations, by Michael J Sullivan.  The first paragraph captured my attention immediately...

The Tease:
"Hadrian could see little in the darkness, but he could hear them - the snapping of twigs, the crush of leaves, and the brush of grass.  There were more than one, more than three, and they were closing in."
 -Theft of Swords, by Michael J Sullivan
