Teaser Tuesday #23 - Red Seas under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

Red Seas Under Red SkiesToday's rather long teaser is from the page I'm reading, about 30% into the book:
'You convinced the nobles of Camorr to throw away a fortune on your schemes,' said Stragos without a hint of anger. 'They love their money, yet you shook it out of them like ripe fruit from a tree. You outwitted a Bondsmage. You evaded the trap that caught your Capa Barsavi and his entire court.'

'Only some of us,' whispered Locke. 'Only some of got away, arsehole.'
-from Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch.
This is the second book in the Gentleman Bastards series (Read about The Lies of Locke Lamora here at e-Volving Books tomorrow)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Pin It!

  8. Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

    "Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.

    Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

    There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

    Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.

    Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

    Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

    "Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.

  9. Nice teaser! This sounds like a great read. Here's my TT: http://mediacenter.tyndale.com/images/x_tbn/i_review_for_the_tyndale_blog_network.gif

  10. This sounds really good, gonna have to check it out myself.

    Merry Christmas.
