Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Books and a Beat.
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
- BE CARFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Godsknife: Revolt by Timothy C. Ward
About 22% in (I’m reading the digital version, which doesn’t give page number):
Warmth rose off his stomach, and she had to touch it. When she did, the heat shocked her—not quite a glowing stove coil, but hot. She reached out again, prepared this time, and traced her finger over his scar. Something arched up to her touch. She yanked her hand back. It’s all real. She stepped back, reaching behind her to hold herself up by the wall. If Order is real, does that mean Chaos and the Maker are as well?
An apocalyptic battle for godhood in the rift between Iowa and the Abyss…
A fleet of enlarged praying mantises have invaded Des Moines, Iowa. Swarms of cicadas are turning survivors into winged soldiers. Orchestrating the war zone is a priestess of Order, who’s perusing godhood, and the nation of followers who’ll get her there.
Caroline’s new friendship parts the veil between reality and myth, as a recruiter of Order needs her to hide him from capture. In their escape, the boss she’s loved like a father reveals his elevator into the Abyss.
In this new world, Caroline finds a usurped God and an angry ghost eager to make her their gateway back to power. What if the person her friends will need is heartbeats away from becoming the real threat?
