Hi! It’s Friday!!
It’s been awhile since I’ve joined in on one of these ‘first line Fridays’…so I thought I’d do it today!
Here’s my first line for today:
He’d never killed a woman in cold blood before, but now was as good a time as any.
Wow! Now how’s that for a first line?! Now you see why I want to be sitting around reading today!! I knew it would be this way. You see, I’ve had this book laying here, waiting for me, for several days now. I just knew the minute I cracked open the cover and read the first page, I’d want to be a shirker and neglect everything else…so I’ve resisted temptation and left it there. But…now the weekend is here. And although we’ve got a busy weekend ahead of us, maybe I’ll have a chance to read a snatch here and there… 😉
Oh yeah! I forgot to tell you…
The book it’s from is
and the book blurb
Mentioned in the pages of the Septuagint but lost to history, the Book of the Wars has resurfaced, and its pages hold secrets–and dangers–never before seen on earth.
Tasked with capturing the ancient text, former Navy SEAL Leif Metcalfe is finally given command of his own team. But their best efforts are ruined when a notorious Bulgarian operative known as “Viorica” snatches the volume right out from under them.
Iskra “Viorica” Todorova is determined to use the book to secure the thing that matters most–freedom. But a series of strange storms erupts around the globe and the coming dangers foretold in the text threaten crops, lives–entire nations. Though both are haunted by secrets of the past and neither trusts the other, Leif and Iskra must form an uneasy alliance to thwart impending disaster. However, the truth hidden in two-
thousand-year-old words could unleash the storm of their own destruction.
Ronie Kendig has long been a favorite author of mine. Her last series was really good, “The Tox Files” and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this book… 🙂
