This week my teaser is from The Summer Tree by Guy Gavriel Kay, the first book in The Fionavar Tapestry series. This is the third book by him that I've tried; the other two being Under Heaven and Ysabel, both very good.
(I really like this illustration on this cover. I just wish there was more of it and less of the bright red title panel, which seems a little busy, IMO.)
Beyond the gates and the walls of the town, the depredations of drought came home. The impact of a rainless summer could be measured in the heavy dust of the road, in the thin grass peeling like brown paint on hills and tummocks, in stunted trees and dried-up village wells. In the fiftieth year of Aileill's reign, the High Kingdom was suffering as no living man could remember.-p. 82
What are you reading right now? Have a teaser to share?
