Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week. You can check out others’ book beginnings here. I’ll share a quote from the 56 percent mark for the Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice! I’m also going to link up with Carrie at Reading Is My Superpower for First Line Friday.
This week’s book beginning:
Adelais is on the run.
And the kingdom of Galmandie has never been more dangerous .
In every town square, people whisper of a girl who brought down lightning on her enemies. The king has placed a huge price on Adelais’s head and sent troops to hunt her down.
Adelais flees high into the mountains. But winter is closing in and she cannot hide for ever .
Far to the north, there is a chance of escape. Her homeland has risen in rebellion against Galmandie. To reach freedom and safety, Adelais must cross many miles of hostile territory with inquisitors and royal soldiers always close behind.
If she is captured, Adelais will be burned as a witch. But if she learns to control the storm of magic within her, she could be the spark that sets the whole country aflame .
Packed with intrigue, action and warring gods, The Rune Song Trilogy is perfect for fans of Robin Hobb, Mark Lawrence and Andrzej Sapkowski.
I had the chance to read and review the first in G. N. Gudgion’s Rune Song trilogy, Hammer of Fate. I really enjoyed it, so I jumped at the chance to read and review this one! Look for my review shortly.
What do you think? Do the snippets I’ve shared grab your attention?
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers. See what others have to say on this topic and link up your own post here.
What are your thoughts on “happily ever after” endings?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
I LOVE a good “happily ever after”! Generally, I like it when my books wrap things up neatly at the end and seal them with a kiss. Unless we’re talking a ripping good series that leaves some things unsettled to suck me into the next book. Then I can live with a little bit less than happily ever after.
What about you? Happily ever after, or not? Leave your thoughts in a comment!
