Teaser Tuesday: The City's Son, Onyx, Throne of Glass, & Sovereign Hope


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


The concrete shale on the ground starts to shift and a breeze picks up, spattering rain against my cheek. The burnt smell is emanating from the wall at the end of the alley, breathing out of the pores of the brick itself.

A high-pitched wail fills the air: steel shrieking on steel like screaming horses. 

~ The City's Son by Tom Pollock, Kindle Location 49 (ARC)



"Do you know what I've been thinking about all day?" With him, it was anyone's guess. "No." His lips brushed the skin of my cheek. "Finding out if you look as good in striped socks as you do in reindeer ones."

~ Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout, pg. 140 (ARC)



Dorian leaned against the door, bringing his face close to hers. "Good night," he whispered, and she didn't stop him as he kissed her again. He broke it off before she was ready, and she almost fell onto the ground as he removed his weight from the door. He laughed softly. "Good night," she said again, heat rushing to her face. Then he was gone. Celaena strode to the balcony and flung open the doors, embracing the chill air. Her hand rose to her lips and she stared up at the stars, feeling her heart grow, and grow, and grow.

~ Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, pg. 300



There was a fixed, defiant look on her face that made him want to reach down and take her face in his hands, kiss her for all her endearing stubbornness, but he kept his face neutral and flat.

~ Sovereign Hope by Frankie Rose, pg. 196 (eBook)

  1. I've been wondering whether to buy The City's Son, and that teaser's brilliant. I loved Throne of Glass and that quote made me smile, I could just imagine Celeana almost falling.
