Hello friends! Welcome to another First Line Friday post.
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? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:
- 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!
If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!
‘The outpost gate creaked in the wind, swinging back on its hinges. It knocked lightly against the wall, a rhythmic tapping sound that echoed in the looming silence. A cold breeze swirled through the gap, and the scent of blood lay on the air like a heavy blanket.‘
I know I know I know. I’m only supposed to write the first sentence of the book. However, I wanted you to get a feel for how the book his going to be like.
This book is titled The Forever Song, which is the third and final book in the Blood of Eden trilogy by Julie Kagawa!
Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.
Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions – her creator Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost – the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.
In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, her triumph will be short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.
THE FINAL HUNT IS ON.
I’ve been wanting to read The Forever Song, for well, ever. I’ve never gotten around to reading this last instalment because I don’t want the story to have a definite ending. Since I haven’t read The Forever Song, that means that I don’t know how the story will end, and therefore, I can have Allison and those she cares about, have a happy ending.
Have you read the Blood of Eden series?
Here are my thoughts on The Immortal Rules, if you’re interested.
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
