Teaser Tuesday – River God

Leave a comment

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
4. Share the title and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

My teaser is from:
“The voyage up-river passed pleasantly enough in long, leisurely days spent sitting on the poop-deck with my mistress. We discussed every detail of our changed circumstances in great depth, and examined all that we might expect and hope for in the future.”
River God by Wilbur Smith

This is a tale of ancient Egypt told from the point of view of a slave and so far it’s rather interesting. There’s a lot of murder, intrigue and betrayal so lots going on. The slave is well versed in medicine so it’s quite fascinating to read about the various treatments that were used.  I’m about half-way through now and enjoying it.
