First Line Friday #90

Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:

Brand of Light (The Droseran Saga #1)

Amazon | Goodreads

The tap, tap, tap of rain drilled into Achilus’s brain, holding him captive against sleep.

Admittedly this is one that’s outside of my normal genre preference, but it sounds really intriguing so I’m excited to be digging into it soon 🙂

About the Book:

There’s a price on her head, and it has everything to do with the brand on her arm.

Tertian Space Coalition has blessed every planet in the quadrants with high technology, save one: Drosero. But in spite of their tenuous treaty with the ruling clans, TSC has plans for the backward planet. And they’re not alone.

After a catastrophic explosion, Kersei Dragoumis awakens in a derelict shuttle, alone, injured, and ignorant of the forbidden technology that has swept her into a nightmare. The brand she’s borne since childhood burns mysteriously, but the pain is nothing to that when she learns her family is dead and she is accused of their murders.

Across the quadrants, Marco Dusan responds to the call of a holy order-not to join them, but to seek a bounty. Gifted-or cursed-with abilities that mark him a Kynigos, a tracker sworn to bring interplanetary fugitives to justice, Marco discovers this particular bounty has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with prophecy. One that involves the hunter as much as the hunted.

  3. Happy Saturday!

    Yesterday on my blog I shared the first two lines from Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar. I’m currently starting The Dating Charade by Melissa Ferguson so I’ll share from there.

    “If one was going to dip one’s toes into the murky, pestilential waters of online dating, an escape plan was critical.”

    Hope you’re having a good weekend! 🙂🧡📖

  4. I’m sharing the first line of Chapter 5 in Echoes Among The Stones by Jaime Jo Wright (since others also chose this book today) :
    It was a cavern of hollow memories that ricocheted off dark walls, repeating themselves over and over until Imogene wished to clap her hands over her ears and scream the remembrances into silence
