Teaser Tuesday: Ancillary Mercy

image Teaser Tuesday 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!

My Teasers:

“Governor Giarod requests that you return to the station at your earliest convenience.” Seivarden said. Ship said. That request, the barely polite gloss of at your convenience or not, was more peremptory then was strictly proper.

– Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie

Eve Dallas is mellowing?

image I finished the new Eve Dallas, Devoted in Death, a few weeks ago and I’ve been thinking: Eve Dallas is a lot mellower in this book. She still kicks ass and takes names, but in a less aggressive way.

Before, she threatened robots and parked right in different of buildings instead of finding a proper parking spot.

In this book she actually parks in parking garage before going up to interview witnesses or suspects or whoever.

It’s just so odd. What does this new, mellower Eve portend? I’m convinced it means something.
