Teaser Tuesday (2)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading; the rules are to post two non-spoiler sentences from a current read.

These two lines are from Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley, one of my favorite authors. :)

(A review shall come soon.)

Of course most of the broth went all over me and the dragonlet, but some of it must have gone down its throat because it choked and gargled and then I knew I had killed it. I whipped out of my shirt again and held it up head down in the air and it gacked and gagged and then started mewing again and trying to get back into my shirt.

I read that book, and it was okay, but not the best. How did you like it?

Kathy Martin said...

This was a good book. I enjoyed it a lot when I read it. My teaser is from Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel. Happy reading!

Robin McKinley is a favorite of mine. I've read and loved Spindles End and Rose Daughter - I need to read the rest of her stuff. Dragonhaven looks to be excellent! I'm hoping that her newest book, Pegasus, will live up to her best work.

AND I can't wait for your review. :D Great reviewer, you are.

Alayne said...

Aww, a baby dragon sounds cute! :) Nice teaser. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

The Golden Eagle said...

Lady Q: You're welcome. :)

Kelsey: You should! It's a really good book.

Amy: Sure!

Carrie In the Hammock Blog: I know. But it works out. ;)

Icewolf: I love it! It's too bad you didn't; I know you like dragons.

Darlyn: You should read it!

Kathy Martin: Glad you did! Also: Infinite Days! I've heard so much about that book. :)

John: I have yet to read her fairy tale adaptations, but I REALLY want to. I've seen a lot about Pegasus esp. on her blog, and it looks very good! The review will be coming . . . sometimes tomorrow, probably. :)

Alayne: It is very cute. :D

LadyViolet said...

Aww baby dragons always sound so cute! (Although there's nothing cute about them when they're all grown-up) Great Teaser - I've really liked the 3 Robin Mckinley books that I've read so I'll have to see if I can find a copy of this.

You're right: they aren't quite as cute once they're grown. :P

Lillie (AliseOnLife) said...

Aww!
I haven't read a good sci-fi dragon story in a while, might check into this book. I do like Robin McKinley.

Book Sake said...

Really interesting teaser - will have to look into this book!

kaye said...

I'll have to read this--I love Robin McKinley and dragon lore.
Kaye-the road goes ever ever on

The Golden Eagle said...

Lillie: This could certainly be classified as SF! And add to that McKinley . . . :)

Book Sake: Hope you do!

Kaye: Me too.

Is this part of a larger series?

Yvonne said...

Great teaser!

The Golden Eagle said...

Smellincoffee: Nope. It's a standalone, which is sort of a relief since there are SO MANY series out there. :P

Yvonne: Thanks. :)
