Teaser Tuesdays -- Runaway Horses

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'm in the midst of reading Yukio Mishima's Sea of Fertility tetrology. This is from the second book, Runaway Horses, which I just started. I haven't gotten to the page I just opened to, but I believe this scene depicts a kendo match.

The Lieutenant's eyes glared fiercely. Isao's stave came whistling down, aimed directly at the top of the Lieutenant's close-cropped head. At the same moment, their eyes met, and Isao sensed a communication pass between them too swift for any words.


  1. Runaway Horses sounds really good. Mine is posted here.

  2. I like that description—the "stave came whistling down"...really pulls the reader in.

    My teaser is here:


  3. Lovely prose. I have not heard of this series, so I shall need to investigate. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2009/11/lonesome-teaser-tuesdays.html

  5. Oooh I wonder what's going on here. Great teaser!
