First Lines FRiday

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!


“We had made a terrible mistake.

I felt it in every beat of Akarra’s wings, in every white-clouded breath that rushed back to sting my face with ice crystals, every tear drawn out on the knife-blade of the wind. The storm was getting stronger. “

Can you guess?

Need a hint?

It has dragons….

It has pride….

And prejudice…..

Give Up?

Here it is!

This is the third book in the Heartstone series that is set in Jane Austen’s world of Pride and Prejudice, but with dragons. It has been a fun series.
