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?
Long, long ago a king arrived in the north. They called him the Red King for he wore a scarlet cloak and his shield was emblazoned with a burning sun.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
A book from my childhood! And one I’m actually unhauling, but it’s going to a good home! It’s going to be living in my old school where the kids will get a lot more joy out of it than I will and fingers crossed they’ll enjoy this dark, magical adventure about a poor unloved boy discovering he has more power than he ever realised.
