Teaser Tuesday: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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 too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.

Heir of Fire – Bloomsbury
Children’s Books

His silence demanded information for information – a fair trade. She sighed. “Let’s just say it was fear and necessity and impressively deep-rooted survival instincts.”
— Chapter 22

Men didn’t build more armies and forge more weapons without having plans to use them. And they certainly didn’t hand out bits of mind-controlling jewelry unless they wanted absolute dominion.
— Chapter 24



I should stop being surprised by this series, by its twists and turns and unexpected developments. The fact that I haven’t also shouldn’t surprise me any longer. The basic story line is unassuming enough, but the layers Sarah J. Maas adds to it make it quite extraordinary. There is not a single character whose motives you should disregard. Second-guess every single detail and especially what you thought you’d figured out. And don’t even think of hoping for one thing or the other. Even if it might look like something is headed in a certain direction, the story will almost certainly prepare an undercurrent to the complete opposite. All very vague and maybe a bit cryptic, but you absolutely need to discover this series for yourself.

Which book has surprised you recently with an unexpected plot twist? Share your reads and teasers in the comments.

That second teaser is so true. Glad you enjoyed it. I would expect loads of plot twists in a fantasy novel.

The first one makes me more interested in reading it, I like the little bit of sarcasm/humor in it.

Although I don't read much fantasy, this sounds like a series I'd enjoy. You chose a couple of great Teasers, especially the second one.

bits of mind controlling jewelry, eh?

For mine, super sleuth Ellery Queen hunts a serial killer in New York City:

I'm in murky and unexpected waters this week as well. (Also, I LOVED Heir of Fire, and agree 100% that Maas's way of layering a story is so complex and delightful to read!) I hate having to wait a year in between her stories!
Here's My Teaser.
