First Line Friday #32

Friday, August 11, 2017

Welcome to First Line Friday. Today I am going to feature a book by four of my favorite authors, Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky.

The Next Wave of Stories in the Harbingers Series Arrives
Cycle 2 of the Harbingers series continues the story of four gifted strangers brought together to fight a growing darkness.
In Bill Myers's "The Revealing," the team finds themselves in Rome trying to retrieve the mystical spear Hitler once owned--the very spear that pierced Christ's side. This task will take them from hidden chambers inside the Vatican to a mysterious seaside cave with powers they could never expect.
Frank Peretti's "Infestation" unleashes a microscopic evil on the world that deceives, blinds, kills, then spreads. The Harbingers team must confront a monster bent on seducing and destroying mankind.
In "Infiltration" by Angela Hunt, the team is wounded and barely holding together. Forced to split up, they realize their investigations have led them into dangerous waters.
Alton Gansky's "The Fog" unleashes a supernatural mist unlike any other. There are vicious things in the fog that kill whatever they find. One team member realizes that the ultimate sacrifice                                                               may have to be made.

First Line:

"What're you sketchin' now?" Cowboy asked. I flipped my notebook shut like a kid caught with porn.
The big guy smirked, "You know, Miss Brenda, you don't have to keep hidin' your gift under a bushel."

Quite a hook, huh?! What's your first line? Let me know in the comments, and then go visit my blogging friends and see their first line.

I have a review copy of this on my Kindle. If this is the second in the series, do you think I need to read the first one first?

I'm currently reading something quite different - Freedom's Ring by Heidi Chiavaroli:

Death's threshold overwhelmed me in a swell of instant silence and intense heat.

It's a dual timeline story set in 1770's and modern Boston.

Sounds very intriguing!

I have the first line from Thomas Locke's "Fault Lines" on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from Candace Calvert's "Disaster Status" from her Mercy Hospital Collection. The Kindle collection with all three books in the series is on sale this month for just $2.99, so I couldn't resist!

"Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms."

Sure sounds interesting! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Ooh I love Frank Peretti and Angela Hunt. Why haven't I heard of this before? Thanks for sharing! :)

I'm sharing about Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren over on my blog today, but I'm currently reading the sequel, Four Winds, so I'll share that here. :)

"Javier laughed and shook his head as we reached the top of the sand dune, Centinela loping in a wide circle around us. "I do not know if I can court a girl from the future and have a pet wolf," he said in Spanish. "That is a lot to ask of one man."

I've not read this series! I love Frank Peretti!

Here is my first line:


In the fourth grade we made little rockets out of old film canisters, baking soda, and vinegar.
The Isaac Project by Sarah Monzon

Oooohhh! I want to read it!

Happy Friday!
My first line is from The Spinster & the Cowboy by Lena Nelson Dooley:
"When the sharp rap on his closed office door roused him, Joshua Dillinger raised his gaze from the legal document he had been studying with intense concentration."

Happy Friday!

Here's mine from Misty Beller's The Lady and the Mountain Man "Are you going to poison her the way you killed your last wife?"

My first line:
“I inspected the knife in my hand.” ~ Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Happy Reading!

I know I’m breaking protocol but I’m still readin the same book! So this is the first line of another chapter.. just to whet your reading appetite:
“Right… right here.” Peter came to a halt between two massive trees where the undergrowth provided a good screen for anyone hiding.
A Name Unknown by Roseanna White.
I need to find more time to read!

I've only read Angela Hunt. I'm going to have to add this book to my list.

Intriguing book; I find I am not so fond of first-person books so much anymore, not sure why or what caused this change though. I may still have to give this one a try though!

I love that first line. Will definitely have to check this book out!

My first line comes from Hold the Light by April McGowan.

"Unremarkable. Amber glanced out the steaming windowpane at the cityscape below her."
