Teaser Tuesday: Royal Tour by Amy Alward

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Ambrosia of The Purple Booker.
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!

Royal Tour by Amy Alward.

Royal Tour – Simon & Schuster

‘I don’t think it was that bad ...’
The tone of her voice doesn’t do anything to reassure me.
— Chapter 3

Finally, I hear the sound I’ve been waiting for. The flapping of wings in the sky.
‘Oh my god, what is that?’ asks Anita, her head tilted up to the sky.
‘You don’t want to know,’ I say.
— Chapter 52

This series is so cute! Fluff and sugar, a fun quick read with humour and witty dialogue. And not at all vapid or senseless. I was more than pleasantly surprised with the first book in this series, so I knew that I could expect an entertaining read with this added level of adventure and criminological puzzles. And the stakes are even higher in this second book. I especially love that we’re getting to see a little more of this fantastical world and I enjoyed the exploration aspect. While second books are in danger of suffering from a sort of bad patch within a series this one nicely managed to maintain the first book’s quality.
The first book had a slight cliffhanger, but this one? Let’s just say that there definitely needs to be a next book and I would very much like to have it sooner rather than later. And maybe, just maybe Sam and Zain will finally be able to go on their normal date?

Can you name a second book in a series that was exactly right and didn’t suffer sequel syndrome? Share well-made continuations of first books you enjoyed and your teasers in the comments!

Sometimes it's fun to read something fluffy, especially after finishing a heavy, serious story. This sounds like a good one.
My Tuesday post features A Memory of Violets.

I love Rick Riordan. I flew through all of the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus. Such a great writer.
