What Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. It’s fairly straight forward. Just answer a few simple questions about the book you are currently reading and the post it. If you use the image above, please make sure you link it back to It’s A Reading Thing.
How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
The Last Days of Magic by Mark Tompkins
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
Turlough MagRodain, the long-reigning king of Meath, sat flanked by his entourage on a slightly raised platform spanning one end of the hall. The deep scar running down the side of his face, just missing his eyes, spoke of his commitment to charging ahead of hist troops into battle; the fact that he still lived spoke of his deftness with a blade.
Sitting beside him was his son and a woman whom Liam did not recognize but guessed to be Turlough’s new wife, as his previous marriage contract had expired without being renewed. Liam was surprised to see that the Brehon-law judge seated on the king’s platform was from Tara, while the chief judge of Meath stood respectfully behind her. That’s fortunate, thought Liam. Such a member of the high court would be helpful in carrying news of the coming events back to the Celtic high king.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
I’m not entirely sure at the moment. It’s a world full of magic, so that could be fun… or frightening. But as with most WAYRW posts, this is a book I am just starting, so I don’t have a good enough idea of the world at hand to know if I would like to live in it or not. We shall see!
