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!
First Lines . . .
Today’s First Lines Friday book is . . .
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas!
THE FINAL BATTLE IS HERE.
Aelin Galathynius has risked everything to save her people – but at a tremendous cost. Locked in an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must use all her fiery will to endure the torture inflicted upon her. If she yields to Maeve she will doom everyone she loves, but her resolve is beginning to unravel . . .
With Aelin imprisoned, her friends must go on without her. Some bonds will deepen whilst others will be severed forever. But as destinies weave together at last, all must unite as Aelin fights to save herself – and the promise of a better world.
