Teaser Tuesdays


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!
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

My teaser: (Just one 'cause it's kinda long)

From George R.R. Martin's A Feast for Crows:

   "Do you fear death?"
   She bit her lip.  "No."
   "Let us see."  The priest lowered his cowl.  Beneath he had no face; only a yellowed skull with a few scraps of skin still clinging to the cheeks and a white worm wriggling from one empty eye socket.  "Kiss me child," he croaked, in a voice as dry and husky as a death rattle.
   Does he think to scare me?  Arya kissed him where his nose should be and plucked the grave worm from his eye to eat it, but it melted like a shadow in her hand.
   The yellow skull was melting too, and the kindliest old man that she had ever seen was smiling down on her.  "No one has ever tried to eat my worm before," he said.  "Are you hungry child?"
   Yes, she thought, but not for food.
