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? I’m kind of using this as a way to keep track of what I want to read next or at least soon. 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!
So here it is:
The rumors spread, wide and fast as a plague.
What book is this?
Do y’all know?
The Circle of Twelve is not who Avery though they were. Neither is Avery.
Her mother is dead. Betrayal and attraction and history have tangled the strings that bind her, Jack, and Stellan. And now, Avery and her friends must put aside their own problems and focus on putting a stop to the most dangerous conspiracy of all . . .
From London to Russia to Egypt, from the chill of underground crypts to the flash of paparazzi cameras, Avery West will finally have to confront whether her fate means salvation–or destruction.
I have absolutely adored the first two books in this series and can’t wait to read the conclusion. These books are like modern day-Indiana Jones meets something you’d watch on the CW. I’m so excited to find out how this will end and if my ship will sail!
