Teaser Tuesdays -- The Golem's Eye

Teaser Tuesday time again, hosted by MizB. How it works is you grab the book you're reading, open to a page, and pick a juicy two-sentence teaser. No spoilers, obviously.

I've been reading The Golem's Eye, the second book in Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus Trilogy a couple pages at a time for about 6 months. I'm just about done, so I thought I'd give it a teaser.

Upon the gruesome death of a magician at the hands of a genie he failed to control:

Then the whole place erupted into noise; those magicians who had already suitably bound their slaves, my master among them, stepped from their pentacles and gathered around the scorch mark, stewy-faced and jabbering. We higher beings began a cheery and approving chatter.

  2. Intriguing! Great choice - you see the conflict and the magic and some social hierarchy - lots of variety.

  6. If it were my book I would be reading a few pages at a time for years. Not my kind of thing. Good thing there are so many different writers for all the different readers.
