Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Mercedes Lackey is the author of several books on my TBR pile. I thought she was mostly a Young Adult author. So when I found this one about an adult witch, I thought it worth a try, also. Had a really difficult time getting into it and felt like reading the back cover kinda ruined the book for me. Still, I'm a sucker for mythology and Aztecs don't get a lot of page time.
It's those scene-stealing Mayans that get all the attention.
Also? The Teaser I'm including is part of the main character's personal Creed, which I found myself almost completely identifying with…almost.
Here's the Teaser:
What are you reading?
"Fifth commandment: there are only three things worth living for; love in all it's manifestations, freedom, and the chance to keep humanity going a little while longer. They're the same things worth dying for. And if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race."
- ummm…forgot to get the page number and now I can't find it,
