Teaser Tuesday #11 - Lord Sunday by Garth Nix

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
***

Garth Nix is one of my favorite Young Adult writers, mainly cause his books are universal. I could recommend them to any of my friends, or the occasional reader, age no bar.
Lord Sunday (The Keys To The Kingdom)
"A boy – a Piper’s child – stepped through the gap and, without a word of warning, lunged at Arthur with a six-foot- long, three-tined gardening fork, each of the tines red-hot, the air around them blurred from the intense heat they radiated."

Today's Teaser is taken from the end of Chapter 3, the page I am on. The book is Lord Sunday, book 7 in the Keys of the Kingdom.

If you haven't read Garth Nix, a great place to start is with The Old Kingdom series; beginning with Abhorsen. Highly unique.

  4. I love the Abhorsen trilogy. I keep meaning to get to the Keys to the Kingdom series. Looking at your "you might also like" posts, it looks like we like a lot of the same books. I'll subscribe :)

  12. The teaser sounds intense, brave kid.

    Book 7? wow I'm not sure I want to read something that long again, considering I was dissapointed with Harry Potter

    @Novroz - Its really not too bad, the first few books are pretty short! And at no point do the pages go to the length that the HP books went to :)

  14. Awesome teaser! That sounds like a very dangerous weapon there. I've seen that book around, but never read any in the series . . .

    I've read The Abhorsen Trilogy--I loved those books! I loved Lirael. :)

    Thanks for commenting on my teaser!
