Tuesday Teasers

Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.


Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! Feel free to Grab the logo and post your own Tuesday Teaser.



(p. 121)..."Before her eyes have had time to adjust to the gloom (even in daylight it remains murky here), Zuana is struck by the smell.  She has prepared herself for sickness, even the telltale scent of death, but this is different: light, fragrant, like a wave of perfume--roses or even frangipani--summer smells in winter.  It is almost as shocking as the sight that greets her on the bed."
