First Lines Fridays 2/22/2019

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!

On the island of Mistmantle, before dawn on an autumn morning, a squirrel lay on her side and watched the shooting stars dash across the sky. It took her mind from the pain.

It was a rare night when the star left their orbits and swirled so low across the sky that it seemed you could reach up and touch them. These nights did not happen often and when they did, they always meant that a great event would happen. For good, or for bad? Nobody could know which.
