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

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

  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.

  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.

  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.
