Teaser Tuesday, April 25

I am seriously obsessed with Crystal King's Feast of Sorrow, a marvelously fascinating historical novel set in ancient Rome, following the gifted slave chef Thrasius, and his ambitious epicure master, Apicius. (Today's its release, too!)

I'll be honest, I was skeptical how much sorrow or drama there could be in a book about a cook but I was so very wrong. (Give it to the Romans to drama up everything!) This book has me gripped, and I'm pretty sure I'll finish all 416 pages in less than 72 hours.

Here's my teaser from it:
I heard and felt the whoosh of wings near my head as a giant owl swooped by me and came to land on Mars's outstretched sword. (p233)
What are you reading today? Any teasers to share?
