Teaser Tuesdays [11]




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, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

The Seven Swords by Nils Johnson-Shelton


Teaser:

"Please," Thumb said. "Each of these swords has slain at least one dragon."
"Quite true, sire," Bercilak added. "I half expect that's why Tiberius is so moody all the time. Not much fun being surrounded by dragon slayers - if you're a dragon."

Goodreads Summary:


Across both worlds are seven legendary blades. Some have been uncovered, Some forgotten, Others secreted away.

Very soon all must be united.

Spending the summer fighting dragons, rescuing wizards, and leaping through portals into the Otherworld was only the beginning for Artie and Kay Kingfisher. The two worlds remain divided, Merlin is missing, and worst of all, Qwon Onakea, their kidnapped friend, may be lost to the Otherworld forever. It seems the only way to save both worlds—and to save his friends—is for Artie to claim his throne as King Arthur reborn.

To do this, Artie must gather his knights so they can venture forth and recover each of the Seven Swords. Finding them all is Artie's only hope for victory.

But all the video games in the world haven't prepared Artie for the battles to come against giants, dragons, ogres, and sorcerers. Nor is he ready for the unexpected threat of the Peace Sword, a mysterious weapon used by the treacherous Mordred to kill the original King Arthur more than a thousand years ago...

  8. This sounds like a fun book, the cover is so cool. I don't read many children's books because most of the ones I know are picture books with few words. The one I want to read is the Borrowers but I think I might add this to my TBR along with Destiny Rewritten.
