Teaser Tuesday | Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) by Laini Taylor
I am sharing two teasers from the same page only a paragraph apart. Brace your selves! The “she” is Zuzana, Karou’s best friend.
She came straitght to the table and stood facing Akiva. SHe was fierce, ready to scold, but when she saw him, really saw him, she faltered. Her expression warred with itself — ferocity with awe — and awe won out. She cast a sidelong glance at Karou and said, in helpless amazement, “Oh, hell. Must. Mate. Immediately.”
“No, really,” said Zuzana. “Right now. It’s, like, a biological imperative, right, to get the best genetic material? And this” — she made spokesmodel hands at Akiva — “is the best genetic material I have ever seen.” She pulled up a chair beside Karou, so the two of them were like a gallery observing the seraph.

You can read one of the opening scenes from yesterday’s What I Read post if you’re interested. I highly recommend this book! It is one of the best I have read.
