“‘It is from the Church,’ Rhun explained. ‘Those who will come will not harm you.’

As she watched the helicopter’s swift approach, Erin felt a nagging worry.

Over the centuries, how many men have died after hearing similar promises?” (pg 141)

Oh James Rollins, you don’t disappoint. The characters! The plot! The intrigue! It’s all pretty awesome.

“(Fraulein Engel instructs me to put down here, for Captain von Linden to know when he reads it, that I have wasted 20 minutes of the time given to me because here in my story I laughed at my own stupid joke about the pickled onions and broke the pencil point. We had to wait for someone to bring a knife to sharpen it because Miss Engel is not allowed to leave me by myself. And than I wasted another 5 mintues weeping after I snapped off the new point because Miss E. had sharpened it very close to my face, flickering the shaving into my eyes while SS-Scharfuhrer Thibaut held my head still, and it made me terribly nervous I am not laughing or crying now and will try not press so hard after this.)” (pg 11)

I could never resist a good spy book, and WWII was also my favourite thing to learn about in history. “Verity” is writing her confessions as a story, and thought her sidenotes are kind of random, I love them!

  5. Ooh, that first teaser is nice! I need to look into The Blood Gospel now.

    And OMG. Dude. I’ve had Code Name Verity on my list for ages, but your teaser makes me want to get the book RIGHT NOW. xD

    1. Yay! I had it on my list for a while too, than my friend just finished it and recommended to me, so I couldn’t wait. There’s lots of her side thoughts that are absolutely hilarious!

    Great teasers. I’m kind of scared of Verity…I love a good spy book, too, and WWII has always fascinated me, but I’m afraid it won’t live up to the hype. 🙁

    1. ah I know what you mean! My best friend who has very similar taste in books as me recommended it to me, so I figured it can’t be that disastrous haha

  7. Cool teasers. These sound interesting.

  8. Intriguing….We have Code of Verity at my library. Now I will have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Both teasers sound super awesome. Code Name Verity sounds like a book that would suck me right in.

    My teaser is up at Find the Time to Read

  10. Very good teasers! I’ve heard good things about Verity. Hope you are enjoying both. 🙂

    If you’d like to stop by I have a teaser up today as well…

  11. All your teasers are awesome, although I’m definitely leaning towards Blood Gospel.

    the first one may be good, not really my kind of book on that 2nd one, hope you enjoy it.

    Tuesday Teaser

  13. Oh yeah, awesome promise ~.~ I wouldn’t trust him for a throw out the window.
    And Code Name Verity? I couldn’t stand it. Was too random for me. I managed the first 10%, then gave up.
