Teaser Tuesdays #32 - Kings of the North by E. Moon

The latest offering, so new it still smells of the publishing house, from Elizabeth Moon continues the Legend of Paksennarion. 
From Chapter 1 of Kings of the North (The Deed of Paksenarrion):
Then, sudden and strong: betrayal and warning.
Kieri scarcely breathed.
Betrayal? Danger? Who?
They lie. She— But that was interrupted; his right cheek seemed to feel more pressure.

I'm very close to finishing it, so I can say that this book is aimed at readers familiar to the world, but not necessarily to Paks. The story revolves around Kieri, the newly crowned King, and other newly promoted Dukes & Captains from the previous book. Paks is inconspicous, so read this for new plotlines, and plenty of fight scenes.

On the flip side - the story feels a little stale now, and some characters don't develop interesting depth in the novel. 
Check out the full review here tomorrow!

  3. It has been so long sing I read the Paks books that I would have to re-read before beginning. I have forgotten the world. My teasers are from The Demon Kiss by Lacey Weatherford and Breaking the Rules by Suzanne Brockmann. Happy reading!

  8. @Kah Woei - Sorry, maybe I should have chosen something easier? This is actually a strong "feeling" that has been sent to Kieri to warn him of approaching danger.
    Oh, and he is getting this from his dead sister's ghost (whose hand is applying pressure to his right cheek).
    That helped right? :P

    @Jyoti - Thanks!

    @Kathy - I'm not sure this is a Paks book in truth, though it is the same world. You can read this without re-reading any of the others.

    @Sally - Thanks for the NetGalley month tip!

    @Gigi - EAch to her own :)

    @Monique - hahah

    @Novroz - Well, she does have a different style of writing, but this bit is an exception.

  9. Sounds really interesting! Great pick!
    I returned your email last night. So sorry it took as long as it did. I've been super sick the last 2 weeks and couldn't form coherent sentences. You wanted coherent sentences, right? ;)

    Here's my Teaser:

  12. That's a very perplexing teaser, it doesn't give away anything or give any real clues! Curiouser and curiouser.

    By the way, I also replied back to you about the eReader on my post if you're still interested.
