First Line Friday # 37

Friday, September 15, 2017

This week I am going to feature another favorite author and her new release. Ronie Kendig's new book, her second in the Tox Files released on September 5, 2017. I hope you've had a great week and like me are looking forward to the weekend, reading, and catching up on some sleep.

About the book:

Six months after stopping a deadly plague, Cole "Tox" Russell and his team are enjoying a little rest. That peace is short-lived when a sniper shot hits Tox. The enemy is discovered to be one of their own, a rogue Special Forces team operator.
Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he's out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier.
Afraid his old friend is right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team engage in another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is cheating--he's using a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.

First Line:

Day 1

Virginia Beach, Virginia

It took one ten thousandth of a second -- exactly 0.000169 seconds ---for the bullet to rip through his shoulder. The sniper shot shoved him backward onto the sun warmed beach. 

Quite a start, huh?!? And sorry, but that's all you get.  😃😃

Ah, Tox! <3

I've got the first line from Janet Ferguson's new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

"Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now."

It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with 'have a good weekend', but I hope you do! 🙂

Another book on my want to read list!

Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

1908 4 days until Christmas
"The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge."

Great first line! I really need to read this one soon!

I'm sharing about "The League and the Lantern" by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is "All of You" by Sarah Monzon.

Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

Lieutenant Michael "Finch" Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and started at the mass on the opposite rack.

You're such a tease! ;) I have this book sitting in my #TBR mountain!
Have a wonderful weekend!

A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
October 15, 1940
Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

My first line is good, but not as gripping as yours!

I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.

Sounds so good! I will definitely need to get this book!!!
Right now, I'm reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It's the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

"There was almost nothing there. Almost."
