Teaser Tuesday #129

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

"You're part Tamouran," he says after a moment of silence.
I blink. "Pardon?"
"Amouteru is a Tamouran family name, not a Kenettran one."
Why does this boy know so much about the Sunlands? Amouteru is not a common Tamouran surname. "There are many Tamouran immigrants in southern Kenettra," I finally answer.
"You must have a Tamouran baby name, then." He says this casually, idle chitchat that sounds strange to me after all that's happened.
"My mother used to call me kami gaurgaem," I reply. "Her 'little wolf'."
He tilts his head slightly. "Interesting choice."
His question brings back an old memory of my mother, months before the blood fever hit. You have your father's fire in you, kami gaurgaem, she said cupping my chin in her warm hands. She smiled at me in a way that hardened her usually soft demeanor. Then she leaned down and kissed my forehead. I'm glad. You will need it in this world. "My mother just thought wolves were pretty," I reply.
