It's Tuesday: Intros & Teasers

 To take part in Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea, just post the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are currently reading or are going to read. The add your link to the list :)

And to take part in Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Should Be Reading:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that 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!

Then add your link to the comments.

Although I haven't finished the book I was reading last week I do currently have more than one book on the go so I can give you the intro and teaser from something different to last week.

Tuesday Intro

Pannonia, 453 CE

The Barbarian encampment was enormous, a great city that moved from place to place at the whim of its unquestioned ruler, the High King. But in the dim light of this predawn morning it was in chaos. Hundreds of thousands of warriors and their shrieking women and ungovernable offspring milled about.  Hundreds of thousands of horses, cattle, sheep and goats all bleated and neighed in the general alarm and made the dawn a cacophony of sounds. The stink of the livestock competed with the smoke of ten thousand fires being fanned to life at once.

Teaser Tuesday

"They could easily be a surveillance team for a much larger conspiracy," said Klein. "They've still offered no good explanation as to why they're following you and spying on you."

Cool intro and teaser! I love the juxtaposition of what feels like a historical or fantastical beginning with the very spy/thriller feeling teaser. Excellent pick!

My Teasers this week are fantasy-based. Happy Reading!

I've seen this author's books around but never investigated further - that might change after that intro. Here is my TT
