Teaser Tuesday - The Gauge War by S.C. Green

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's Tuesday again? I swear, the weeks went by faster and faster this year. Anyway, right now, I'm making my way through The Gauge War by S.C. Green, the second book in the Engine Ward series. I'm enjoying it, because the setting is just so interesting - imagine a world where science is literally the religion.

My teaser:
"Far from the desolate, mud-strangled wasteland Nicholas had always envisaged, the swamps carried their own unique beauty. He followed Brunel through mist-cloaked valleys, past trees bent and twisted into eldritch shapes, through pools of warm, cloudy water."
What is your teaser this week?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!


  1. Sounds like the bayous around where I live. I need to check out this series.

  2. An intriguing read, enjoy.

  3. That's an intriguing teaser although I'm not quite reconciling it with the book cover. The teaser is beautifully written; is the whole book that well written? Here's my teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-11y

    1. Half the book takes place in the swamps, and half takes place in an industrial society (like in the cover). It's very well written, in my opinion(:

  4. Ok, so this sounds like something I want to read! Look at that cover, it's really different from others I've seen lately and I agree with your protagonist, marshes have their own beauty! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
