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!
My teaser this week is from the book King of Thieves by Jane Kindred, which gets released today! I was lucky enough to get a review copy, and I just love it. I finished the book a couple of days ago, but I won’t be starting on any new books yet since I have exams and term papers due the next weeks.
King of Thieves is the 2nd book in the Demons of Elysium series, which is a prequel to The House of Arkhangel’sk series. Enjoy!
“Belphagor reached for him suddenly and pulled Vasily into his arms. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to put you in danger again.”
“You’re confusing me,” Vasily whispered.
“That’s all right,” said Belphagor. “You’re confusing me too.”
-King of Thieves
There is a lot of confusing and misunderstandings going on, but that’s what you get when two proud demons enter a relationship with each other, and they’re both to damn male to admit when they are pushed too far.
