Teaser Tuesday, 18th Edition

Teaser Tuesday 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!

I am doing a slightly different version of Teaser Tuesday. Since I go through books so quickly, I'm going to put a quote from any book I've read in the past week.


"'We have taken possesion of you, granddaughter to an enemy, a traitor guest. An old debt must be paid.'" - Dandelion Fire, by N.D. Wilson

"All this while, Mr. Crossley was trying to give 6B a geography lesson. He had gotten to the point where he was precious near giving up and giving everyone detention instead." - Witch Week, by Diana Wynne Jones (from The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume II)

"They crossed to the enormous trees, now black in their own deep shadows, and slipped between them to find the path again. It took some time before they hit upon it in the meager, dappled starlight." - The Hollow Kingdom, by Clare B. Dunkle

"He and Mrs. Baldock eyed each other down the length of the table. Everyone's heads turned from one to the other like people's at a tennis match." - Conrad's Fate, by Diana Wynne Jones (from The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume III)

"'Don't you try to put me off, Joss Callow,' Grammer interrupted. 'I've told you to fetch me Joe here and I mean it.'" - The Pinhoe Egg, by Diana Wynne Jones (from The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume III)
