Teaser Tuesday #29 - Jaz Parks and The Silmarillion

Two for One special today! I'm reading a book on the commute and one at home, so I've got teasers from both books:
One More Bite (Jaz Parks, Book 5)Teaser #1: 
About halfway through the Jennifer Rardin One More Bite (Jaz Parks, Book 5) novel:
“Magic’s in the air already,” I murmured. “And it feels different than before. I don’t think they’re doing the same spell.”
“Can you tell at whom it is directed?” 

“Can I    .    .    .    Do I look like a bird dog to you?”
The Silmarillion Teaser #2: 
This second novel is a little harder to read, written as it is in a deliberately archaic language. However, it is immensely quotable! 
From The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien (the precursor to Lord Of The Rings):
"Thus it was in and amid all the bliss of that realm, while its glory lasted, a dark seed of evil was sown." - Page 139
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

  2. I have the first Jaz Parks book here to read at some point.

    Here's my teaser for this week.

  3. I liked Simarillion, but ought to read it again. As for magic, One More Bite has some possibilities!



  4. Great teasers...love the language in the second one!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. @BookBelle - Following you back!
    @Marg - I started reading this series recently too.. Just had to get all the earlier ones done before I review the yet-unreleased book 7 for NetGalley.

    @Malcolm - The Silmarillion is a little hard to read right now, so I'm mixing it with other books.

  6. OMG I love the Jaz Parks books I really have to dig out the latest one and read it before the last one comes out.

  7. @Sally - YAY! How nice to meet a fellow fan :)
    P.S. We seem to have coinciding tastes across more than one series too.

    @Juju - Thanks :) Visiting yours now.

  10. I tend to lean more toward contemporary reads or certain historical fiction, but I'm sure these are good reads for those into these genres.

    Tossing It Out

  11. I love your teasers! Especially the last one from The Silmarillion.

  12. Both teasers are full endorsements of Tolkien's talent for words.

    I can see the wizardry flying and amidst it comes the spells to enchant the world into the bewitching hour.

  13. Ooo double the trouble!!! I love!!! Great choices! Definitely checking them out!

  14. Both sound good, although the first one is more my speed :) I love your blog and am following you now.
