Teaser Tuesday: Discord's Apple

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give away too much. You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
There wasn't much spare time this past week so I'm actually still working my way through Wildefire (it's starting to annoy me so I'm having a hard time getting into it). So here's a book I read during the summer written by one of my favorite authors, Carrie Vaughn. I go completely nuts for mythology so when I read the back of Discord's Apple, I was immediately hooked. Evie Walker returns home to her terminally ill father at a time when America is starting to fall into disarray, when terrorist attacks are common, checkpoints and rationing re-instituted. But her father - and her entire line of ancestry - protects the secrets located in the Storeroom, artifacts that ancient enemies have patiently waited centuries for the right moment.

Here's the teaser: 
"The slippers knew that the old woman had come for them; as if they had a sentience of their own. Did every object in the Storeroom have the same sense of knowing?"  
- pg 38, Discord's Apple by Carrie Vaughn
