This Tuesday, it is time for the teaser again, and this time the book is by a fellow author and blogging friend, Cherie Rich.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly 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!
Here are two teaser sentences from Men of Foxwick:
“A sob hitched in Mama’s throat as she emitted a mouse-like squeak. She embraced him tightly and then smoothed his damp hair from his face. “My sweet boy, I’m so, so sorry.””
Men of Foxwick is a collection of fantasy short stories, and it helped me stay away in a different world during a particularly depressing cloudy weekend here in Singapore. The characters engaged me, be it a blind teenager trying to find his place in the world, a woodsman who became a spy, a swordmaster par excellence, a monarch in love, and a hunter trying out his luck. If you like fantasy, and I do, this book is a good pastime. Buy it on: Amazon / Amazon UK / Smashwords / Kobo / Nook
I’ve just finished reading the most awesome book ever…TT below.
“Going to join the fool’s festival?” Ser Brynden snapped. “I’d tell you to slap some sense into your sister, if I thought it would do any good, but you’d only bruise your hand.”
Game Of Thrones, George RR Martin
Aww, wonder what happened to her boy. Good teaser!

That is not a good start, not at all.
Great teaser choice! Thanks for stepping by and sharing!
Nearly buried as we are in the world of sordid realities, unfolding around us continually, sometimes we need to immerse ourselves in the arcane yet lovable world of fantasy. The peep into the book appears to be enchanting.
Cool, Tuesday Teaser. Many thanks for visiting my blog. Come back on Friday’s for a flash fiction story.
So much heartache and sadness in these two sentences.

Another sad teaser, perhaps a trend today – it matches the weather here, dreary and rainy.
