Teaser Tuesday - Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson

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!


I am currently reading Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson.  This is a huge novel, and it will probably take me awhile to get through, which means we'll get lots of Teasers out of it!  In this Tease, something unexpected disrupts Shallan's progress through a dreary landscape...

The Tease:

"Shallan gasped at the sudden flare of color.  It disrupted the landscape like breaking lightning in an otherwise clear sky.  Shallan set down her spheres - Tyn was having her practice palming them - and stood up in the wagon, steadying herself with her freehand on the back of her seat.  Yes, it was unmistakable.  Brilliant red and yellow on an otherwise dull canvas of brown and green."
 -Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson
What's your Tease?
