teaser tuesdays: the thin excutioner

Written by Darlyn At Tuesday, July 06, 2010



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!




From The Thin Executioner by Darren Shan

"The executioner swung his axe - thwack! - and another head went rolling into the dust. There was a loud cheer. Rashed Rum was the greatest executioner Wadi had ever seen and he always drew a large crowd, even after thirty years."

page 9.

What's your teaser for Tuesday??

    Interesting! I remember reading somewhere that being an executioner is a very physically demanding job because heads are actually pretty difficult to lop off. (Okay, was that TMI? LOL! Sorry!)

  16. Oh dear. I get the feeling that there's a lot of gore in this one? Or maybe just make that death. Any which way, it's probably not for me, but it sounds quite...interesting. Nice teaser!
