This First Line Friday There Will Be Dragons

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for readers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, readers were hooked on a book by the first 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

“Gods dream of empires, but devils build them.” – the poet Valerius, prior to his exile in 735 AD (anno Draconis)

One day after the emperor had died and been eaten, the call went out to select his successor. 



 

Are you ready??!
