Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
Throne of Jade (Temeraire) by Naomi Novik: My book today is the 2nd in the Temeraire series, an alternative history of the World War (i.e. a WW 1 with Dragons). Pretty interesting so far, but thenwhat book with dragons wouldn't be?!
From Page 117:
"Already the battle seemed like a nightmare in his own memory: the endless gaudy stream of the fireworks and the red light of the cannon firing, the ash-white eyes of the Fleur-de-Nuit in the dark, bitter smoke on his tongue, and above all the slow, descent of the wave, like a curtain lowering upon a play. He stroked Tremeraire's arm in silence, and together they watched the wake of the ship slipping gently by."
That is still only two sentences, you know! I'm so excited to add to what you are reading to my reading list - really need suggestions for the 23 hour transatlantic flight I'm on this week.
