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.  Royce and Hadrian are exceptional thieves who find themselves in rather interesting situations.  In this scene, they are about to rescue a young girl in distress, but they really have no idea what they are getting themselves into.

The Tease:
"Disoriented and confused, the girl wiped her eyes.  She was in the gutter beneath the Tradesmen's Arch.  Her hair was a filthy tangle of leaves and twigs, her dress a tattered rag.  She clutched a tiny purse to her chest, the drawstring tied around her neck.  To most passing by, she might appear as a bundle of trash discarded on the side of the road, or a pile of cloth and twigs absently left behind by the street sweepers.
Still, there were those who were interested even in piles of trash."
