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!
Everything had gone horribly wrong.
None of Safiya fon Hasstrel’s hastily laid plans for this holdup were unfolding as they ought.
And that’s all you’re getting!
This is from a newly discovered series for me, but it has some of the best world building, and some truly hilarious and loveable characters. If you’re a fan of Sarah J Maas then you will love these books.
Have you read this series? What did you think? I managed to get E-arcs of the first two books in the series, and the third has just been released. I would definitely recommend these for anyone in need to of a good fantasy read, with some really witty characters, and a magic system that is wholly original.
