Teaser Tuesdays......And It's Tuesday...

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

We tried
to pull the dead man out of the snow, but he was frozen into the ground, as rooted as a tree. Dusk was leaching all of the colors from the forest; the night was almost on us; there was no more time to spare for corpses.
p.117 taken from City of Thieves by David Benioff

I'm 15 maybe, and was caught looting a dead Nazi. Why anyone here in Russia cares is beyond me, but as my punishment I have to find 12 eggs for a colonel's daughter wedding cake. My companion in this insane assignment is Kolya. He's been like a big brother to me. Russia is decimated, dead corpses are just lying on the side of the road, everyone is hungry, and I don't know what will happen to us if we return without the eggs.

  1. This sounds like an excellent read! Great teaser; the 'Where Are You?' post really caught my attention.

  2. I've been thinking about reading this for some time - I seem to see it everywhere :) Great teaser this week! My teaser accompanies a giveaway on my blog this week.

  3. Very interesting. Love the teaser and the description is intriguing. Can't wait to hear more.

  4. Your teaser is very intriguing. Sounds like a book for me.

  11. Thanks for stopping by and I loved your teaser. This book has been on my TBR pile for a bit. I think I'm going to have to move it up a few spots.

  12. What an interesting teaser. The second part of your post (the where are you part) really adds to it and gives a better picture of the book and what is going on. I hope that he finds those 12 eggs as I don't want to know what will happen if he doesn't!
