Teaser Tuesday #6: Bridge Of Birds

Today's TT is from one of the best books I have read this year: Bridge of Birds, Master Li, Book 1.
It is a fantasy-esque book set in "an Ancient China that never was". Come back here tomorrow for the review!
Taken from a page when the author is describing the importance of the drummer while two swordsman compete in Sword Dancing:

It is said that a truly great drummer is the equivalent of a third sword. Sample gymnasium conversation:
"I hear that Fan Yun has challenged you.Who's your drummer?"
"Blind Meng."

"Blind Meng! Great Buddha, I must sell my wife and wager the proceeds! Orderly, be so kind as to order flowers for Fan Yun's widow."

In other news, I have a Catchy Name Contest! that began yesterday, and will go on through the next 2 weeks. My blogpost above describes the details - I need a new name for the blog :) The winner gets a book via Book Depository, or an Ebook by Ilona Andrews. Also, I will be posting on all the attempts made, so your website would be linked as well.
Pin It!

    My Teaser

    Sorry - I have no idea about a name for your blog. Just on the evidence of my own blog's name, it's pretty clear I'm seriously lacking in blog-naming skills.

  7. I've never heard of this before. I like Asian inspired fantasy for young adults (Eon: Dragoneye Reborn and Silver Phoenix) so I might like this.

  8. Your teaser is such a coincidence, since I went to see an exhibit on Sunday pertaining to the Terracotta Warriors from China. Seems to be a theme right now. :-)

    Good luck naming your blog!

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.

  9. Wow, that bad. He should change his drummer then. :-)

    Mine's from Devil May Cry.

  10. Ooh. *makes note of book* I love Asian-themed fantasies. Sell his wife to wager the proceeds and send flowers to the other's widow, eh? Great teaser!

    And thanks for dropping by mine! :)

  11. love the teaser, I have never read anything relate to china yet
