Teaser Tuesday: Clockwork Angel

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week my teaser comes from Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel, a young adult paranormal set in Victorian England. I'm about halfway through and this teaser comes from page 78:

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1)     "You know about the Magister," Tessa said. "They said they were preparing me for him."
     "For him to do what?" Will asked. "Eat you for dinner?"
     Tessa shook her head. "To--to marry me, they said."
     "To marry you?" Jessamine was openly scornful. "That's ridiculous. They were probably going to blood sacrifice you and didn't want you to panic."
