First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
- Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
- Finally… reveal the book!
Are You Ready?
“If I’m not home in two months, I’m dead.
Her mother’s warning haunted her as Enne Salta lugged her leather trunk down the bridge leading off the ship, filling her with an inescapable sense of dread.
If I’m not home in two months, I’m dead.
It’d been four.”
Can you guess?
The character’s name might give it away!
Need another hint?
It is from the first book in a series
Have you guessed?
Okay here it is….
I am so excited to be rereading this. And I am super excited to read the final book in the series The Queen of Volts later this month.
Were you able to guess? Have you read this one yet?
