Teaser Tuesday 35

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

The idea is to:
Grab the book you are currently reading.
Open it up to a random page.
Share two teaser sentences.
Give the name and author of said book.
And remember No Spoilers!

Trickster's Queen by Tamora Pierce.

"For a moment Aly hoped the god was not placing more trust in her abilities than she deserved. Then she shrugged. There was one way to find out if she was as good at her task as she and Kyprioth hoped, and that was to pull off a war."

Page 15.

Aly’s adventure continues. . . . No longer a slave, Alanna’s daughter is now spying as part of an underground rebellion against the colonial rulers of the Copper Isles. The people in the rebellion believe that a prophecy in which a new queen will rise up to take the throne is about to be realized. Aly is busy keeping the potential teenage queen and her younger siblings safe, while also keeping her in the dark about her future. But Aly, who is usually adept at anticipating danger and changes, is in for a few nasty surprises.

I've been having a bit of reading trouble lately nothing new is really appealing to me so I have decided to go with an old favourite. I pretty much love all of Tamora Pierce's books and I have read and re-read them many times. If you haven't read any of her stuff I really recommend it.

That's all for now.

  22. You picked a great quote from this book. I love Tamora Pierce. She's always been a favorite author of mine. I'm really looking forward to MASTIFF!

    Thanks for commenting on my TT! THE NIGHT CIRCUS is *beautiful* so far. I just read a scene with the most stunning imagery and bookmarked the page to come back to!

    I know you didn't mention ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE in your comment, so I don't know if you're also interested in it, but I just found out that I've been chosen to host a giveaway for the book I teased, ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE, so come back and enter to win! :)

  27. Great teaser! I completely understand where you're coming from. Going back to what is familiar and well loved is one of the ways I get out of a "reading slump" too. My go-to series is Harry Potter usually. I actually haven't read any of the Tamora Pierce books although I've heard they're wonderful. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
