It’s time for another First Lines Friday! Hosted by Wandering Words!!
What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?
Here is how it works:
– Pick a book and open to the first page.
– Copy the first few lines without revealing which book it is.
– Reveal the book!
So… do these first lines entice you?
Arent Hayes howled in pain as a rock slammed into his massive back.
Another whistled by his ear, a third striking his knee, causing him to stumble, bringing jeers from the pitiless mob, who were already searching the ground for more missiles to throw. Hundreds of them were being held back by the city watch, their spittle-flecked lips shouting insults, their eyes black with malice.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
I am so excited to read this book. I read The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Turton and really enjoyed it, giving the book 4 stars, and I’m really hoping for more of the same from book #2! This time our characters are stuck on board a ship in 1634, where devilry stops the smooth sailing and there’s a mystery to be solved. I’m hoping to add this one onto my September tbr and fingers crossed I’ll love it!
