Teaser Tuesday



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading and it asks us to...


  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title; author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
By Fire, By WaterThat evening, amidst the flowers and fountains in the Garden of the Generals, the chancellor of Aragon sat with Mohammed bin Sa'ad al-Zagal, the emir of Granada. Beside the emir sat his vizier, sipping a fig liquor, eating crisp pastries stuffed with squab, cinnamon, and almonds, watching a young girl called Sariya perform a dance she had learned in the harem. 
- By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan
I would include the page number but dropped the book and lost the page.
