Hello friends! Welcome to my 10th First Line Fridays 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!
‘I’d always welcomed war, but in battle my passion rose unbidden.’
The title of this book is Nightshade by Andrea Cremer.
Calla is the alpha female of a shape-shifting wolf pack. She is destined to marry Ren Laroche, the pack’s alpha male. Together, they would rule their pack together, guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But then, Calla saves a beautiful human boy, who captures her heart. Calla begins to question everything – her fate, her existence, and her world and the orders the Keepers have asked her to follow. She will have to make a choice. But will she follow her heart if it means losing everything, including her own life?
The above synopsis is from GoodReads, but I like the one on the back of Nightshade better (below).
She risked her life to save his, believing she’d never see him again. But he has returned, challenging her destiny as Alpha wolf, leaving her doubting her past, and fearing her future.
Nightshade has been on my TBR for a while now. I believe for a few years at least, and I would tell you where I first heard of Nightshade, but I can’t remember. Which is how my life goes to be honest, haha.
Nightshade intrigues me because of the synopsis to be frank. My interest tries to get away from me whenever I think of what might happen. So I can’t think on the what-ifs for too long, or I end up disappointed when I finish the novel.
Have you read Nightshade? What did/do you think of it?
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
