You must know the drill by now: you take your most recent book, and open it to a random page. There you pick out two sentences to serve as teasers, that may induce people to want to check out the book.
This meme is hosted by MizB at the Should Be Reading blog, and that’s where you can go and leave a link to your own teaser, and check out the teasers of others. You can get some pretty good ideas for reading material there!

I’m very excited to read this book. It’s the first historical novel I’ve ever read that features the “heretic Pharaoh,” Akhenaten. I’m fascinated by ancient Egypt to begin with, and of course the story of this man, his queen Nefertiti, and all the events that surrounded his reign, is an intriguing real-life tale.
This book is the first of three, and I accidentally read the second book first, which dealt with the events after Akhenaten died. So I’m very excited finally to be reading book one.
