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!

Hello! Thank god it’s nearly the weekend. I have next week off work, and am spending the weekend catching up with friends I haven’t seen in nearly two years, then next week visiting my sister in Leeds for her birthday. I’ll hopefully have a little time for reading, but I think most of it will be spent catching up which I am SO looking forward to. For this weeks FLF I’m highlighting a book I recently treated myself to in a Kindle sale. It’s a quirky sounding fantasy romance that has had some rave reviews, and I’m really looking forward to reading it.

“My editor is going to kill me. I don’t mean rip out my throat and eat my heart whole, or whatever the hell Shifters like him do on weekend getaways in Jersey City. I mean, like normal human kill me. Or fire me – which is infinitely worse.”

Sounds good right? This is a part of BBNYA so I won’t be picking it up until later in the year, but I’m definitely excited to give it a read. Ready to find out what it is?

Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch – her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.

As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister.

In snowy Moscow drained corpses of illegal workers have begun to turn up, with hundreds more reported missing. When Saskia is sent on assignment to investigate an oligarch Vampire crime ring that might be behind the deaths, she plans to get in out of the city’s frozen grasp quickly…preferably with her neck intact.

But beautiful ballet dancer Konstantin Volkov and his wildcard brother Lukka complicate things. The vampire brothers have their own reasons for solving the string of murders, reasons that conflict with Saskia’s mission. Soon, Saskia finds herself enmeshed in the city’s glittering web of crime, passion, and violence, where truths and lies are one and the same.
