Teaser Tuesday: Sailing To Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay

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

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

But she'd had to tell him... otherwise there was no cause at all for him to even consider it, among all the usual requests. He was said to be a kindly man... - pgs. 144-145, Sailing to Sarantium (The Sarantine Mosaic Ser.) by Guy Gavriel Kay
