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. 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, Rohan finds himself in a difficult situation...

The Tease:

"Night again, hot and close.  The sixth night since Ianthe.  Rohan turned away from the dinner laid out for him.  Food, wine, even water were suspect.  He trusted neither his tongue nor his nose, for everything tasted and smelled of dranath to him. He was over the worst of it, having eaten in the last few days only those things he considered least dangerous - unsliced fruit from which he peeled the skin, dragon tail cactus root washed clean of its sauces, a few other things.  His stomach growled at times with emptiness, but he had no other way of ensuring that he ingested no more of the drug.  He found it ironic that the dranath that had saved his dragons was so great a danger to him.."
