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!

There was nowhere to look away, nowhere to hide, nowhere to pretend that something else was going on other than his eyes intent on her.

Dorian leaned back in his throne. “My father needs someone to aid the empire–someone to help him maneuver around difficult people.”
“You mean he needs a lackey for his dirty work.”
“If you want to put it that bluntly, then, yes,” the prince said. “His Champion would keep his opponents quiet.”
“As quiet as the grave,” she said sweetly.

“Give me the sword!” she cried, her voice almost drowned out by the clang of metal on metal. She thrust her arm forward to take it, and in that moment, she was no longer Clary, his friend since childhood, but a Shadowhunter, an avenging angel who belonged with the sword in her hand.
~p. 485, City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
