Ashes To Ashes We All Fall Down… This First Line Friday

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?

Psst I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) 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!

 

what the fluff

“You think Darez Fort was a test.”

She spoke slowly, tasting the words. They were metal on her tongue, bitter as blood.

“Oh yes,” Rabia said eagerly. She leaned forward. “All of it is intended to test us— the unnatural madness, the sickness, the blight on Irinah’s desert. <slight edit for spoilers> And what happened to your husband, his bravery when the madness came, and your survival, it’s proof—”

Ok are you ready ?????????????

And No I Am Still Not Giving WordPress The Chance To Mess This Up…

 

Realm of Ash (Book of Ambha #2)

Empire of Sand (Book of Ambah #1)

By Tasha Suri

*I believe but will double check- this is also a stand alone but will hold more significance for those who have dead Empire of Sand.*
