When my officemate Sab saw that I had this book on my desk, she stopped and told me that it was one of her favorites.
"I make it a point to read it at least once every year," she said.
Naturally, I will need to find out for myself just why she does that. I haven't gotten to the end yet; about one-third through-- my only complaint is that I don't want to put it down, even if I have to.
Today's teaser, therefore, is taken from Guy Gavriel Kay's Sailing to Sarantium, Book One of the Sarantine Mosaic.
"What is it? Linon! What is this?"
But before the bird on his neck could make any reply, the mist parted again ahead of them, more than a swirling this time, a withdrawal, revealing the road across the narrow ditch for the first time that morning, and Crispin saw clearly what had, indeed, come on this day.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* 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!
