First Line Fridays - Wings of the Wind


Happy Friday!!!

I hope this Friday finds you well! We are hoping to finish our cabinets this weekend. Yes...they are still not completed! But we are almost there. Today's line comes from Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette. This is book #3 in the series Out From Egypt. I can't wait to dive into it this weekend!

Negev Desert
Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, 
I'd never felt more alone.

  1. My first line is from, Vendetta, by Lisa Harris.

    "The initial step off the sheer face of a three-hundred-plus-foot drop was always the most terrifying."

    Enjoy!

  2. The Out of Egypt series is on my wish list!

    My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

  3. Oh, you will love that book!

    I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger's upcoming release on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from 'Nightshade' by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

    “Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Happy Friday!! My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: "The dream started the way Jennifer's actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten."

  9. Good luck on finishing the cabinets! I love finishing home projects! Here's my first line today (from the prologue): "Night crept over the hills, smothering the landscape in a cocoon of darkness that would hide him in a few minutes." -- Colleen Coble's Haven of Swans (the cover is intriguing, too!).
