This week's teaser is from Chalice by Robin McKinley

"Nor was there any wind, and the rain fell gently, softly, with a quiet susurration; it was now little more than a mist, a drizzle. Even the lingering smoke seemed benevolent, and barely stung her eyes and throat."

Robin McKinley has such a beautiful writing voice! It look me a while to think of a metaphor, but reading Chalice is like floating down a river. Soft and flowing, but the occasional thrill when the boat hits a current. It's such a lovely read! In the beginning though, she really thrusts you into the world she's created. She doesn't ease you into it much, so for the first couple chapters I felt like I was playing catch up, but after that the information is unveiled much more naturally. I'm really loving it so far!
