It's Tuesday, Where Are You? | Teaser Tuesday {9/1/09}

I am in France on my way to Chartes; it is March 1173 and my name is William Marshall. I am with Prince Henry and we are leaving Chinon, Anjou. Prince Henry has had another argument with his father, King Henry II. Prince Henry has ordered us, his hearth-knights, to accompany him to his father-by-marriage's home in Chartes.

  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from ... that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
  • Please avoid SPOILERS.
This week's Teaser comes from THE GREATEST KNIGHT: THE UNSUNG STORY OF THE QUEEN'S CHAMPION by Elizabeth Chadwick. These sentences come from page 118 of my ARC copy (and therefore may differ from the final, published version). It's out today though!
For a while, they concentrated on putting distance between themselves and Chinon, the knights grim, the servants who had chosen to come absorbed in their effort to keep up. William sent outriders to the front and rear, the space between his shoulder blades prickling.

  1. Great teaser this week! Another book for the old tbr list :) My teaser accompanies a giveaway on my blog this week.

  2. Sounds like part history, part swashbuckler. Hopefully a good tale. I like your use of the map too.

  3. Since they were about to embark on a journey, I thought it would be fun to 'see' it.

  4. Nice post! I got to visit Chartes a few years ago and loved it!
