Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of Books and a Beat.
This week my teaser comes from Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard which is the second in the Red Queen Series. I actually finished this book yesterday and liked it a lot. It’s not the most unique of plots and has elements of Red Rising, Hunger Games and various other stories but it’s very enjoyable and I can’t wait for the next one.
No spoilers in the teaser but there may be some mild ones for the first book in the blurb.
She stares at her feet, fixating on the floor below. I know her look well, the look of a shattered soul. If you speak, if you move, you’ll collapse.
~ page 78, Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
I was born to kill a king, to end a reign of terror before it can truly begin.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red, the colour of common folk, but her Silver ability – the power to control lightning – has turned her into a weapon that the Silver court will do anything to destroy.
With no one left to trust, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join the uprising. But Mare is treading a deadly path. Will she shatter under the weight of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
Happy reading everyone.
