Teaser Tuesday #85

Ed ecco di nuovo la rubrica settimanale Teaser Tuesday, creata dal blog Should Be Reading, che si divide in poche, semplici fasi:
1_ prendi il libro che stai leggendo
2_ apri una pagina a caso
3_ scrivi un breve brano (stando attenti a non spoilerare)
4_ scrivi titolo e autore

"There's almost no shamans never. I mean, people always talk about how there's never many sorcerers, but there's less shamans. Sorcerers are just wankers who get that life is magic, like that's a big deal. They're all into their special effects, their boom bang boom shit - any old tit can be a sorcerer once they learn how to feel the city beneath their feet. And there's the shamans of the Tribe, the guys who get all bonded on self-mutilation and that, but they're only shamans because they lead, not because they know, and half of them are dead anyways. But proper shamans, real shamans - you and me - we got the other thing. The deeper thing. We don't feed on the city like sorcerers do, we don't use it for our powers. Us and the city, we're the same. We're one. You gotta get used to two things when that happens."
"What things?" asked Sharon, almost in a whisper.
"First thing is you ain't never gonna be alone. Wherever you go, it'll be with you, in you, you in it. No one's never alone in a city."
"And the second thing?"
"You're always gonna be alone", he replied with a little shrug. "Cos no one else will ever get it, and cos you'll always know how much bigger everything is. You can try explain it, but you can't because you're a shaman and they ain't. Now, you may be into your self-help shit but, as a goblin who is like pretty fucking good at what I do, and I'm not just saying that because I am, I'm gonna give you the best ever advice ever. Deal with it."
 - Stray Souls, Kate Griffin
