First Line Friday . . . Week #5

Friday, February 3, 2017

About the book: From New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee comes the much-anticipated, fast-paced sequel to The Progeny about the powerful descendants of the most notorious female serial killer of all time.

All at once, she remembers. The memories Audra had erased have returned. And now she knows why she did it—to save her daughter.

Now she must find her archenemy, the Historian, and put an end to the centuries old Progeny/Scion war once and for all. But first she has to rescue her husband, Luka, who is being held prisoner by the Scions, all while on the run from the law and struggling with her growing powers and their painful side effects.

But when a bitter betrayal stalls her plans, Audra doesn’t know who to trust. With the help of a heretic monk, her Progeny friends, and the hacker, Jester, Audra fights to defeat the Scions and find a way to save other Progeny in the process. The final confrontation with her surprising nemesis will put her powers to the ultimate test.

Andi, I LOVED The Progeny! I can't wait to get my hands on Firstborn!

The squeal of the train wheels jerked Essie Vanderfair's attention from the doodles and half-formed thoughts scribbled inside her notebook to the window beside her.

Since I shared the first line of the Prologue on my blog, here is Chapter one. "Maggie turned the hat block and examined the broad-brimmed, yellow straw hat." Happy Friday Andi! Enjoy the Ice Festival!

My first line is: " "...for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord." The words grabbed the man by the throat." (I had to include that 2nd line!) from Moving Target by Lynette Eason

I love Tosca's obsession with bacon :)

Finished reading A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander

Rebekah Carrington stood shivering across the street from her childhood home, satchel heavy in hand, cloak dusted with snow.

I received a copy from Netgalley and it is super good.

Sounds interesting!

Thanks Rachel! I just posted pictures on Facebook.

Tosca is a ton of fun and her hubby is a hottie! ;)
I'm waiting on my copy to arrive. Can't wait!!

That's a good one!!
