Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
The two books I'm currently reading are on my Kindle, and I'm too lazy to be flipping back and forth between that, so I just pulled out The Red Pyramid in celebration of today's release of the second book in The Kane Chronicles.

Why didn't you tell me? I wanted to scream.
My father summoned his staff and wand. "Ruby, if we fail-"
"We can't fail," she insisted. "The world depends on it."
They kissed one last time, as if they sensed they were saying good-bye. Then they raised their staffs and wands and began to chant. Cleopatra's Needle glowed with power.
