Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ShouldBe 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 and the author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

All I would say to Hylas, the soon to be hero, is if you're going to make enemies don't make them the "monsters of darkness and bronze" who have no compunction about killing goat-herding teenagers. Michelle Paver's black warriors are royally bad.
WHAT KIND OF MONSTER WOULD YOU WANT TO FIGHT?
Please make mine a short one with all the power of a feather in flight ;)
