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!

Happy Friday! This week I’m going to be focusing on a book from my NG backlog. I’m a little ashamed to say I haven’t read this one yet, especially with all the love I see the series receiving on twitter. BUT you could say I was very clever because the author has just released the final book in the series so I won’t have that torturous wait in between books.

“Give me your hat.’

They are not the sort of words that you expect to start a legend, but they were the first words he ever heard her say.”

Any guesses? I really hope I’m able to pick this one up soon because it sounds right up my street! Ready to find out what it is?

Two nations at war. A prize beyond compare.

For generations, the Hundred Isles have built their ships from the bones of ancient dragons to fight an endless war.

The dragons disappeared, but the battles for supremacy persisted.

Now the first dragon in centuries has been spotted in far-off waters, and both sides see a chance to shift the balance of power in their favour. Because whoever catches it will win not only glory, but the war.

  1. This is such a good book! I love the whole series, though I’m putting off reading the third book because I’m not ready for it to be over. I envy you, though, not having to deal with the agony of how book 2 leaves off. I hope you enjoy the trilogy when you get to it!
