This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is:

♠ Grab your current read.
♠ Let the book fall open to a random page.
♠ Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
♠ 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!

Legacy, Susan Kay

"Yes, Cecil, as you so rightly say but seem to be in danger of forgetting, I am the Queen. And I warn you now that the man who tries to use the spur with me will take a fall from which he'll never recover!"

And now he was finding it hard - perhaps impossible - to rule the lion's cub. He had thought himself in partnership with this splendid young lioness, but now he saw how easily she might break the chains of discipline and dignity, and turn upon him with rending claws, as the great Henry had turned on his loyal servants Wolsey and Cromwell. Never trust a cat, the least domesticated of all animals!

  1. I can't begin to tell you how much I want to read this book. I am very much looking forward to when it is rereleased by Sourcebooks next year.
