Teaser Tuesday - Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn

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!


One of my reading goals for 2014 is to reread some of my favorite books, and I'm beginning with one of my all-time favorite fantasy novels. Many people don't care for it, but I don't even understand those people.  I love this story, and while it might not be perfect, it's pretty darn close in my mind.  For a good number of years, Prince Rohan - in spite of, or maybe because of, his flaws - was the perfect man in my eyes and definitely my first Book Crush.

This week we see Rohan through his sister's eyes for a brief moment at the funeral of their father...

The Tease:

"Rohan stood apart and alone, holding a torch in his hand.  The flame turned his hair to molten gold and sank his eyes into darkness.  He was a stranger tonight.  For almost the first time, Tobin could see their father in him; the Desert had claimed him for its prince."
 -Dragon Prince, by Melanie Rawn
What's your Tease? 

Alternate question - Who was YOUR first Book Crush?  Leave the character name and book title in the comments below, and maybe a little about why you crushed on that character!


  1. I read this first trilogy a few years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for the memories. Mine is from Jasper Fforde's The Last Dragonslayer: http://eyesandearsblog.blogspot.com/2014/02/teaser-tuesday.html

  2. Good teaser, stop and see mine.
