Teaser Tuesday 5

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. To participate, simply 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 week's teaser is from Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri.
"You said to beware the witch mark on a person’s body, for they are servants of the devil. But he had no mark, did he?"
"No. It was gone. I saw it in the baths, but then it was—"
"And so your clever answer was that the court must be more wary of those without the mark, because the devil doesn't need to mark them. They've gained his trust."
"Yes, but—"
"So whether he did or didn’t have a mark—all that talent, my work, sentenced to death."
"Please stop this. Please let me go."
"Just two more questions, Monsieur Bodin. What makes you think the devil is a he? And why is it that there are no marks on you?"
Pages 104-105

Eclectically yours,
