Teaser Tuesdays / It’s Tuesday, where are you ?

Just quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences the book you’re reading to tempt other readers.

Here is mine:-

“He didn’t know where or when, he didn’t know what his punishment would be, but he knew that there would be one. A dead owl had been left in front of his door in the middle of the night.”

My name is Giles and I live in the village of Ulewic. I am in trouble. Real trouble. The Owl Killers have given me a sign that I am to be punished. I should never have bedded that girl. I’ve though about running, but I’m bound to Lord D’Acaster. And even if I could get away, even if I could lie low for the year it would take to become a free man, they would take their revenge on my mother. I have stay and face them. There is no other way.

  1. That’s an intriguing, exciting teaser! Owls aren’t always just a symbol of wisdom — sometimes they symbolize something deadly. So my hair kind of stands up while reading your teaser.

    Meanwhile, my own is at Bookishgal.

  2. Future punishment indicated by dead owl…that’s a new one! I mean, the bloody horse’s head in bed is typical, I suppose…on to other animals? Great teaser in any case – I’m wondering all about what happens before and after!
