Tuesday Teaser/ Dwarves by Markus Heitz

Tuesday, March 30, 2010
 Welcome to Tuseday Teaser.

Miz B at Should Be Reading sponsors Teaser Tuesdays asking that you to: 
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  •  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! 
This week's teaser comes from a book I am reading for the Once Upon a Time Challenge entitled Dwarves by Markus Heitz.

"Who pays for your handiwork?" demanded Tungil. "Tell us, and you'll be spared."

"We'll leave you to drown in your blood if you don't, " Ireheart said threateningly.



I have just started this book. It reads very much like J.R.R. Tolkien and while I loved Tolkien,  like Tolkien,  I got a feeling this is not going to be a quick read.

This is new to me. I'm a huge Tolkien fan, so I should look into it.

This is a new book to me too. Thanks for sharing! My teaser this week is Green Angel by Alice Hoffman - a teen read.

Sounds neat! I always felt like dwarves got (no pun intended) the short end of the stick, in terms of books about them. Elves seem to enjoy a lot more popularity--so I'm glad this book is out there!

My teaser for this week is here!

It looks, and sounds really interesting. Even though Tolkein's books always meant a longer read, I felt pretty satisfied when I finished a book haha. Great teaser!

..."while I loved Tolkien, like Tolkien, I got a feeling this is not going to be a quick read."

I could never even get to the part where I love Tolkein. I never could get past the first few chapters of the Hobbit. Which is weird, when I read Hawaii at the age of 11. (or 12) Those first chapters took forever, - well they took as long as it takes an island to appear and grow vegetation, birds, animals..... :)

What a threat! I have never read Tolkien since I can't get into sci-fi or fantasy. Thanks for visiting.
