Teaser Tuesday: A Conjuring of Light

What is teaser Tuesday? It’s a meme hosted by The Purple Booker (previously by Books and a Beat).

Grab your current read, flip to a random page, share two teaser sentences, don’t include spoilers.


A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
Series: Darker Shade of Magic #3
Hardcover: 624 pages
Publication date: February 21st 2017
Publisher: Tor Books

“Oh, come on,” said Lila. “Every ship needs a pet.”
Kell threw up his hands. “Fine. He can stay.”


“Kell,” she said, the word something between a whisper and a gasp.
And then the door burst open.
Alucard stood in the doorway, soaking wet, as if he’d just been dumped in the sea, or the sea had been dumped over him. “Stop fucking with the ship.”
Kell and Lila stared at him in stunned silence, and then burst into laughter as the door slammed shut.

If I had a physical version of this book I’m pretty sure I’d used up all my post it notes because everything was just so good, which made it hard to choose which teasers to use.

  1. I still can’t believe I haven’t read anything by VE Schwab yet. I really must start this series, everyone absolutely raves about it and it sounds as though it’s already a much loved favourite of yours too. Wonderful snippet and thanks so much for sharing <3

  2. Oh my gosh!! I can’t wait until I get to those parts! Kell and Lila are killing me with their cuteness right now and I’m only like a fourth in ha. Great teasers, Jackie!

    1. Their cuteness definitely killed me. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book, Cyn.

  3. I keep meaning to start this series. I have the first book on my Kindle. I have The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato from my review stack this week. Happy reading!

  4. I am definitely curious about this author….thanks for sharing. Here’s mine: “THE FUTURES”

  5. Humorous quotes! I hope you enjoy. Happy reading!

  6. I keep saying I’m going to start this series! Going to add it to one of my challenges so I will.

  7. I really need to make time for this book. I have a copy but not enough time to get it read. Sounds great!

  8. Gaaaaaahhhhhh, I need to read this book! I’m so scared (I’m scared of conclusion novels in general) but also very eager to read it. It’ll be my treat for myself after I graduate in May (which theoretically seems like a long time away BUT IT ISN’T). D: Thank you for sharing, Jackie!

    Have a great week. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    I still haven't gotten to the second book yet, but I enjoyed the first one quite a bit. I'm excited to finish.
