Teaser Tuesdday - Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson

I came back to Singapore on Saturday, so obviously, I've already been to the library! I managed to borrow quite a few books that I've had my eye on - Pennyroyal Academy being one of them. Another fairy-tale inspired book, how could I not?

My teaser is:
"According to legend, Saudade was looked upon with disfavor by the Fates, who sought to destroy it at every opportunity. When finally they succeeded, the kingdom burst apart into the Great Tide that washed the world clean, ushering in the Age of Kings. It's yet another fairy's flight of fancy." (Page 214)
Ok, this is three sentences instead of two, but I really wanted to include the last sentence!

Happy Chinese New Year to all Chinese!

What is your teaser Tuesday today?


  1. This looks like an interesting read - might have to check if my library has it. :-)
    Here's my teaser for this week: http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2015/02/teaser-tuesdays-february-17-2015.html

  2. This sounds like fun and the cover is great! I have recently started enjoying fairy tale adaptations, so maybe I should give this one a try! I wish there was a fiction library near me so I wouldn't have to buy books in order to try them! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great week!

  3. Interesting Teaser. I'm not much into fantasy or paranormal, but I like the description in this excerpt.
    My Tuesday post features ALL THAT GLITTERS.

  4. I do enjoy fairy tale spin-offs! Especially ones that include dragons! :)

  5. I'm with Claudia. A spin-off and dragons has got me curious:)
