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 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 and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Dreaming the Eagle, Manda Scott

Airmid spat. She had forsaken the grey cloak of Mona and armed herself with blade and helmet. Of itself, it said she would not be taken alive as a slave. If they died, it would be together: a dreamer and her warrior.

Breaca reached down and pulled Airmid up behind her on the grey. A shadow moved to her left. She thrust out with her shield and drew back her blade for the swing. The red mare moved ahead of her and the enemy warrior died in a plash of blood and splintered bone.


  1. Fantastic teaser! This novel sounds interesting. Mine is here:

  2. Whoa...a great teaser. You have me wondering about the story. Are you liking the story?
    I am going to find out more about this book and most likely place it on my to-read list.

  3. Haven't read enough to have an opinion yet. But I've always been interested in Boudicca.
