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!


So I'm currently reading Theft of Swords, Volume One of the Riyria Revelations, by Michael J Sullivan.  I'm about a quarter of the way through, and so far I'm quite enjoying it!  In this scene, the princess prepares a spell - one that requires a lock of her recently murdered father's hair...

The Tease:
"The moon was rising as Arista placed the dagger on her windowsill.  While it would still be some time before the moonbeams would reach it, all the other preparations were ready.  She had spent all day working on the spell...All that was required now was the moonlight.
She jumped when a knock on her door startled her."
 -Theft of Swords, by Michael J Sullivan
