Teaser Tuesday - Rise of Empire, 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!


Since I finished Theft of Swords I've been itching to continue on with the story of Royce and Hadrian, so this week I started Rise of Empire.  Princess Arista has managed to convince the rogues to accompany her across a dangerous stretch of the country so that she might meet the leader of the Nationalist Movement and gain their aid in fighting against the empire that threatens to overwhelm her kingdom.

The Tease:
"Arista woke feeling disoriented and confused.  She had been dreaming about riding in her carriage.  She sat across from both Sauly and Esrahaddon.  Only, in her dream, Esrahaddon had hands and Sauly was wearing his bishop's Robes.  They were trying to pour brandy from a flask into a cup and were discussing something - a heated argument, but she could not recall it."
