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!
To celebrate the release of The Bitter Kingdom Dani, Aly, and I decided to share some of our favorite moments from this fantastic trilogy. If you haven’t read these novels, you really should give them a try. They are AMAZING!
“What have you done to me?”
I want to tell him he is a fool. I want to show him my own Godstone, alive and real. I say nothing.
He grasps for his caged Godstone and thrusts it toward me, but the glow already fades. “Why does it not burn you?” he demands, his voice garbled. “Why?” I respond in the Lengua Classica. “Because it is not the will of God.”

“From habit, I turn to look for Hector, seeking his quiet approval. I don’t catch myself until it’s too late, until I’ve lost him all over again.”

“… my current path means danger and maybe even death. It’s terrifying. But it’s a manageable terror. Because I’ve chosen it.”
