Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play, and the rules are simple:
• 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!
My teasers this week are from the Royal Ranger, the twelfth book in John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series. It claims to be the last, which makes me sad, but then again, the last two books in the series said the same, so we'll see what actually happens!
"What does she do in the forest?" Halt asked her.
"She tracks animals. And she hunts."
"Is she any good?"
Cassandra shrugged uncertainly. Horace answered before he could stop to think.
"Apparently yes. She never comes back empty-handed. But she gives the game to the castle guards."
"He fell on his knife. He's dead." the steward said. He looked up at the Ranger, but saw neither guilt nor regret in his dark eyes.
"What a shame," said Will Treaty. Then, gathering his cloak around him, he turned and strode from the tent.
I'm really liking this book so far, despite not being too far in and it being a while since I read the old ones! Also, knowing what I know about the premise of the book, I know it's going to be heartbreaking. Still, I must press on, because I need more of Will's story.
