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 I started Rise of Empire, the second book in the series. Royce and Hadrian find themselves far from home on a mysterious mission, and as usual, surrounded by danger...

The Tease:
"Royce turned to see Thranic and Staul.  Staul held a torch and Thranic carried a crossbow.  "It's not safe to venture too far away from you friends, or didn't you think about that Royce?" Thranic said, then fired the crossbow at Royce's heart."

What's your Tease?


  1. I love, love, love this series! And that is an excellent teaser! I'm hoping to get to re-read it all soon. Did you know a prequel was just released? It's the first of a two-book series. It's called The Crown Tower. Book two will be The Rose and Thorn.

    1. Yes I'm really looking forward to the prequel series as well. I was kind of late to the party, so I've definitely got some catching up to do, but so far I'm loving this series! Thanks for stopping by!
