Teaser Tuesday 10/27

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
My teaser this week is from The Alchemaster's Apprentice by Walter Moers:
Echo groped his way to the back of the cellar and crouched down in a corner just as Ghoolion appeared in the doorway. The cellar was suddenly bathed in multicoloured light by the will-o'-the-wisp lantern in his hand.
Don't you just love the term will-o'-the-wisp?


  1. will o wisp - now how can I integrate that into my everyday vocabulary? I just used accolades the other day - twice! My friends were suitably astounded. :)

    My teaser is up too and showing some world building in a sci fi suspense romance story.


    Happy Tuesday - Miranda

  2. Oh, sounds kind of spooky. Makes me want to read this book; I will have to add it to my to be read list.

  9. Very interesting teaser! I followed the link to the Amazon Page and discovered this is the fourth book in the series. I'm definitely adding this series on my TBR list.

  10. I'm used to will-o-wisp, but it stills works wonderfully as a lantern image. Good teaser.
