First Line Friday

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? I saw this over on The Anatomy of a Bookworm but it was originally hosted by Wandering Words.

Rules:
> 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!

Here we go! 😀

Tonight, I will make the Alchemist’s blood – Jules Ember’s blood – into a weapon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Evermore by Sara Holland. Jules Ember was raised hearing legends of the ancient magic of the wicked Alchemist and the good Sorceress. But she has just learned the truth: not only are the stories true, but she herself is the Alchemist, and Caro—a woman who single-handedly murdered the Queen and Jules’s first love, Roan, in cold blood—is the Sorceress. The whole kingdom believes that Jules is responsible for the murders, and a hefty bounty has been placed on her head. And Caro is intent on destroying Jules, who stole her heart twelve lifetimes ago. Jules must delve into the stories that she now recognizes are accounts of her own past. For it is only by piecing together the mysteries of her lives that Jules will be able to save the person who has captured her own heart in this one.

Did anyone guess what book it was? 😀 I’m currently reading Evermore, and I’m really enjoying it so far ❤ It is the second book in the Everless series by Sara Holland. In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. Everless follows Jules Ember, a former servant at Everless, the Gerlings’ estate. With her father on the verge of death, Jules will do whatever necessary to save him. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself. Have you read Everless or Evermore? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Hope you all enjoyed! Bye guys, happy reading! xx
