Omg, it's already July. I actually consider today's book one of the stars of my collection, simply because it was a serendipitous find and I love to reread it once in a while.
Yan picked up the chest and examined it, then pulled out a gleaming crystalline object, about two inches long and hardly broader than the stalk of a scallion, which he sniffed and stared at in the moonlight. After wrapping it tightly in several layers of cloth he placed it back in the wooden chest and muttered, "The nerve of that banshee! My wooden chest is ruined on account of him."

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!
