Teaser Tuesday - Fantastic Creatures by Fellowship of Fantasy

Hey everyone!! I hope you're having a good start to the week. Right now, I'm enjoying a short story anthology from the Fellowship of Fantasy, which basically tries to have stories without explicit violence, sex or swearing (doesn't mean everything is happy and light though. Some stories are quite dark).

And I'm really enjoying the stories so I'm having a good start to the week.

My teaser:
"To arms! To arms! Wake the citizenry and seal the city! The King's body has been stolen!" 
One of the black-clad figures pulled off his gag. "So much for the mannequin." 
"I really thought that would fool them until morning, another replied. "Maybe it shouldn't have been smiling."
I know this isn't two sentences, but if you don't have them all, the joke loses its punch.

And now, I should get back to preparing for my graduation thesis. I'm a little bit behind :p

What are you reading this week?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. 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!

  3. You're right. You needed the extra sentences. Sounds like an interesting anthology. This week my teaser comes from Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts. Happy reading!
