Teaser Tuesdays (2): The Serpent's Ring by H.B. Bolton {Relics of Mysticus-Book One}








Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading where we can share what we are reading with some teaser sentences.  The rules are simple and anyone can play.  
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share (2) two teaser sentences from anywhere 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!
So here is my teasers:



    Title: The Serpent's Ring
    Series: Relics of Mysticus Book One
    Author: H.B. Bolton
    From Goodreads:
Evan and Claire Jones are typical teenagers, forced to go with their parents to yet another boring museum ... that is, until something extraordinary happens to make their day a little more than interesting. After following a strange little creature into a closed exhibit, Evan and his older sister, Claire, discover the Serpent’s Ring, one of the magical relics formed from the shattered Mysticus Orb. Purely by accident, they have awakened its powers and opened a portal to Sagaas, land of ancient gods.
Before the siblings can comprehend what has happened, the Serpent’s Ring is wrenched from Evan’s hand by an enormous fish and flown back to Aegir, the Norse god of the sea. Evan and Claire, accompanied by a band of unlikely heroes, must retrieve the Serpent’s Ring before Aegir uses its immense powers to flood all the lands on Earth.
For Middle Grade readers and higher
Fans of: Percy Jackson Series

"So that's how you drink," observed Evan.
"Did you think we drank seawater? Yuck.  I happen to know what fish do in seawater." She leaned closer to whisper, "And if I were you, I would not drink it."

I am scheduled to review this book and book two at the end of May for a blog tour for this book.  I can't wait either!  I am loving this book so far and I am enjoying reading it with my nine year old sons.  It is humorous, adventurous, and has a lot of mythology packed inside.  

So what is your Teaser this week?  I would love to hear from you!
