Teaser Tuesdays: Prospero in Hell by L Jagi Lamplighter



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The exciting, suspenseful story of Miranda’s search for Prospero, the fabled sorcerer of The Tempest

The search of a daughter for her father is but the beginning of this robust fantasy adventure. For five hundred years since the events of William Shakespeare’s
The Tempest, Miranda has run Prospero, Inc., protecting an unknowing world from disasters both natural and man-made. Now her father has been taken prisoner of dark spirits in a place she could only guess. Piecing together clues about her father’s whereabouts and discovering secrets of her shrouded past, she comes to an inescapable conclusion she has dreaded since Prospero was lost.

Prospero has been imprisoned in Hell, kept there by demons who wish to extract a terrible price in exchange for his freedom. As the time of reckoning for Miranda draws near, she realizes that hundreds of years of their family’s magic may not be enough to free her once-powerful father from the curse that could destroy them...and the world.


My Teasers: "What do poets have to say about harpies, hm? 'Hatchet-faced'; 'loathsome'; 'ill-tempered.' Not a word about what wonderful mothers we are. Not a word about our feelings or our needs. No it's just 'frightened this nosy king' or 'chased off by that pair of winged clowns.'"

-Prospero in Hell (Prospero's Daughter #2) by L Jagi Lamplighter, pg 23

Ordinarily I am rarely tempted by fantasy/paranormals, but this spin on Shakespeare sounds interesting, and the subversiveness implied by the teaser's mythical creature of ill-repute is promising. I will defintely look up more information about Prospero In Hell, so thank you!
