Teaser Tuesday – The Wolf Age & Nightshade City

It’s Teaser Tuesday.  AGAIN!!  I can’t believe that it’s almost December!  I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping yet.  It’s starting to stress me out, so I am finding my books a welcome escape from all the hectic activity I know is just around the corner.

Lots of great reads on tap for this week! My new book radar must have finally been functioning correctly, because when I stopped by the library to pick up a book on hold, I discovered a bunch of BRAND NEW and SPARKLY books!  I only checked out a few because my TBR pile is gianormous, but I can hardly wait to dive into a few of these!

So what am I reading right now??  First up is The Wolf Age by James Enge.  It has werewolves.  And a tough warrior whose sword inflicts damage to him, too!  Ouch!  While I am enjoying it so far, I am finding that it isn’t a quick read.

“The woman’s sword was rusty, bent, unbalanced, notched along both edges – inferior to Tyrfing in every way but one: he could use it to kill with impunity.  He ran on to fight his next antagonist.”

I also picked up Nightshade City by Hilary Wagner.  This book is about a bunch of rats.  Some of the rats are not very nice.  In fact, they are very scary and mean.   I hope they get what’s coming to them!

“Placing a skeletal paw decisively on Clover’s diminutive shoulder, Billycan pressed his nails into her skin, his prickly claws pinching like thorns.  He had a dour feeling about the girl, but continued with his duty.”

The only thing I don’t like about the book so far is the font used in the book.  I am finding it difficult to read.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
