Teaser Tuesday 15


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Be careful not the include spoilers!
• Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

I have modified them slightly for my Teasers. It will not be two sentences from a random page but two, usually more, sentences from the pages I have read so far that have struck me as most interesting, original or that I just happen to like a lot.

My teaser this week comes from Caged Warrior (Dragon Kings 1) by Lindsey Piper. I got this book as an ARC from NetGalley a while back and now I am finally coming around to reading it. It is a paranormal romance / urban fantasy and it is the first book in a series. Book 2, Blood Warrior, is to be released on 30 July. A short prequel, Silent Warrior, was published in April this year. I am still in the beginning of the book and I am still not sure what to make of it but I am rather curious how the story will develop.

"Why do I feel there's a tiger in my skin? And what the hell happened to his armor?
But how to demand answers from a man who had more in common with a brick wall than a sentient creature?"

Caged Warrior (Dragon Kings 1) by Lindsey Piper

Ten years ago, Audrey MacLaren chose to marry her human lover, making her an exile from the Dragon Kings, an ancient race of demons once worshiped as earthly gods. Audrey and her husband managed to conceive, and their son is the first natural-born Dragon King in a generation—which makes him irresistible to the sadistic scientist whose mafia-funded technology allows demon procreation. In the year since her husband was murdered, Audrey and her little boy have endured hideous experiments.

Shackled with a collar and bound for life, Leto Garnis is a Cage warrior. Only through combat can Dragon Kings earn the privilege of conceiving children. Leto uses his superhuman speed and reflexes to secure the right for his two sisters to start families. After torture reveals Audrey’s astonishing pyrokenesis, she is sent to fight in the Cages. If she survives a year, she will be reunited with her son. Leto is charged with her training. Initially, he has no sympathy for her plight. But if natural conception is possible, what has he been fighting for? As enemies, sparring partners, lovers, and eventual allies, Leto and Audrey learn that in a violent underground world, love is the only prize worth winning.
