Men lay dead and bleeding and a crowd was waiting outside the Kettle door. I could Nikolai’s voice in my head: The people like spectacle.

The show wasn’t over yet.


“I hope you weren’t looking to me to be the voice of reason. I keep to a strict diet of ill-advised enthusiasm and heartfelt regret.”

Leigh Bardugo’s new book (Six of Crows – which sounds awesome!) comes out next week and I realized I actually hadn’t finished Ruin and Rising yet! Therefore now rectifying that. Still adore Nikolai, ha.

  2. Both teasers are good, but I particularly like that second one. So quotable.

    I’m pretty sure that this book is on my TBR list – which is very very long!

  4. I liked this series and am looking forward to her new book too. My YA teaser this week comes from What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler. Happy reading!
