Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to give everyone a look inside the book you’re reading.
Play along: Grab your current read; Open to a random page; Share two teaser sentences from that page; Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.
My teaser this week is from The Burning Times: A Novel of Medieval France by Jeanne Kalogridis.
“They moved steadily down out of the hills, the English, more than five thousand men, all told: lancers, foot soldiers, the much-dreaded archers with their bows the height of a man. Dark locusts spilling out in irregular swarms, they had been on the march for months and no longer bothered with the precise lines of formal battle; nor did they need to.” (256)
What are you teasing us with this week?
