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! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week. I’m currently on my way to Vienna for a gig and some sightseeing and am ridiculously excited to be on a plane after the past two years. The book I’m spotlighting this week is the witchy book of my dreams. It sounds like it’s going to be a quirky and feminist read and I can’t wait to dive in.
“In her dreams, Conrad was still alive.”
Well, I’m definitely intrigued! Ready to find out what it is?
Hidden among us is a secret coven of witches. They are Her Majesty’s Royal Coven. They protect crown and country from magical forces and otherworldly evil. But their greatest enemy will come from within.
There are whisperings of a prophecy that will bring the coven to its knees, and five best friends are about to be caught at the centre. Life as a modern witch was never simple … but now it’s about to get apocalyptic.
