Contrary To Popular Belief It DOES NOT Say Pet Me. I REPEAT. It DOES NOT Say Pet Me

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?
Psst I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) 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!

IT DOES NOT SAY “PET ME” NOW YOU STOP THAT MISTER! Back to First Line Friday…

Four stories above the Grand Foyer of the Seafall City Opera House, each painted panel in the barrel-vaulted ceiling depicted a scene from one of the three worlds. Which world it happened to be depended on the tint and tone of the panel: daylight was for Athe, the world of mortals; twilight represented the Valwode, where the gentry dwelled; and midnight belonged to Bana the Bone Kingdom, home to all the koboldkin.

Through these wheeling coffers of world-skies- day dancing into dusk, dusk swirling into night, night into day again- cavorted the bright-winged, the beautiful, the bizarre. In that ceiling, at least, juman and gentry and goblin all intermingled together, like they had in olden days before the doors between worlds were barred and the boundaries set.

Ok are you ready ?????????????
