Teaser Tuesday #TuesdayBookBlog The Goddess and the Thief by Essie Fox

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books And A Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two or three “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!


The Goddess and the Thief is the third book I have read by Essie Fox. It is described as      A beguiling and sensual Victorian novel of theft and obsession

Inside the cage, within the golden bars there perched a little silver bird, its surface engraved with feathers and flowers, very detailed, very intricate.  Its eyes were two pieces of gleaming jet.  A beak had somehow been engineered to open and close in time with the notes- until the music stuttered and died, which was when the bird’s breast split in two and opened to reveal its heart.  A green jewel in a nest of black velvet.  

Our souls are like birds within a cage, they long for the liberty of the air.

You can read about another of Essie’s books here.
