Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can 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!
This is a reread and one of my favorite books ever.
They had long agreed they would celebrate the date by starting the children in their uterine replicators. The debate had never been about when, just how many. He still thought his suggestion of doing them all at once had an admirable efficiency. He’d never been serious about twelve; he’d just figured to start with that proposition, and fall back to six.

I’ve never heard of this! I just checked it out on Goodreads and it has an amazing average rating. I’d definitely like to check it out. Would you recommend reading the whole series or do you think it’s possible to read this one on its own?
I think it works as a stand alone.
You will miss somethings because you’ve not read the previous books – reoccurring characters, mostly. But I think the writer does a pretty good job of explaining past relationships.
Nice teaser, hun. 🙂
Thank you, love 🙂
Uh oh… Even with some kind of replicator that would be a lot of babies at the same time. I hope you’re enjoying Diplomatic Immunity, Sonia.
Sounds good but I don’t fancy twelve or even six babies at once… Here is my Tuesday post https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/first-chapter-first-paragraph-july14/
The wonders of “modern science” lol. I’ve read McMaster in the past, but it has been awhile.
This sounds like such a strange concept. Six children at once? No thanks.
Great teaser 🙂
Ooh this sounds very different. It’s new to me. Hope you’re enjoying it & thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Wow! I don’t think I’d want that many!
Sounds fascinating! Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.
I love this series. Did you know Lois has another book in it coming out somewhere around February 2016? Happy reading.
Interesting teaser! I will definitely check this book out on Goodreads. 🙂
Nice teaser, sounds like a cool read!
Ooh I haven’t read much speculative fiction, and none from this author, but I’ve heard great things. Great Teaser! 🙂
I’ve never heard of this book! Love the teasers, sounds interesting. Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
Sounds interesting and a little scary. That’s a whole lot of babies! Happy reading!
This one sounds different! I’d have to read a bit more to figure out what is going on there.
Wow that teaser sounds quite interesting, different but it does make you want to read at least that page to see what the hell is going on!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Good teaser. It’s been a while since I’ve read some science fiction.
Wait, what? So many kids at one go? The teaser makes me want to read the book!
