Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of Dream of Kings by Sharon Hinck!

and the first line is…

My dreams had whispered to me all my life, but lately they were shouting – shouting something urgent that I couldn’t discern.


The Future Never Sleeps

In the glacial nation of Norgard, Jolan the Dream Teller serves every seeker, whether peasant or high lord. Though she loves using her gift, she struggles to navigate the corrupt and dangerous court and the jealousies of the Guildagard.

When an old man’s nightmare imparts a dire warning, Jolan realizes her entire nation is in danger. But before she can sound the alarm, she is betrayed by the guilds and sold into slavery in a rival kingdom far to the south. As a slave in a foreign land, at first Jolan can’t see beyond her singular focus: return home to warn Norgard of the coming calamity. After facing new dangers, making new friends, and forgiving old wrongs, she must fulfill the purposes the Provider has set before her.

Only then can she face a decision that could cost her the man she loves, her calling, and her freedom—all to save a people who abandoned her.

    Daria Nevsky slammed the door of her Ford F-150 truck and tucked her jacket under her chin to ward off the chill of the November wind.
    On the Run by Lynette Eason, part of Targeted: Three Romantic Suspense Novellas by Lynette Eason, Lynn Blackburn, Natalie Walters

    That certainly caught my attention!

    My first line is from the creepy good book by Jaime Jo Wright, The Premonition at Withers Farm:
    August 1910
    When death came to visit, no one ever prepared tea and cookies.
    Happy reading!

  3. I am currently reading Godmersham Park by Gill Hornby. It’s pretty awesome!
    “Anne did not stay long at the party. She was still not in quite the right mood.”
    I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. That’s a gorgeous cover! I’ve been reading The Christmas Switch by Zoey Marie Jackson. The first line is: Chanel Houston tossed her keys in her purse and reached into the back seat of her sister’s 2002 Honda Civic to grab one of the boxes of books. ~ Have a great week!
