Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a new meme hosted By Jenn at Should be Reading.

Rules ARE:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
Please avoid spoilers!

And this week, as I keep saying, I'm reading The Sorceress by Michael Scott. And I love it. Can't put it down type of love it. So here's my teaser:

"Many Elders have called for your destruction," Bastet continued in a deep growl.
The sentence shocked Dee into silence. "But I have served the Dark Elders loyally. I have done so for centuries," he argued plaintively.
"Your methods are crude, antiquated," the cat-headed Elder went on. Consider Machiavelli: he is a scalpel, neat and precise; you are a broadsword, crude and blundering. You once almost burned this very city to the ground. Your creatures killed a million humani in Ireland. One hundred and thirty thousand died in Tokyo. And despite this loss of life, you still failed to secure the Flamels."

Now back to the Flamels, London, and Gilgamesh.
