A very late FIRST line Friday #DevilsDeal #FirstImpressions #TWRBlogtour

Or at least a very late blog post for me, I’m usually a morning blogger. After I’ve had my dinner, I get sleepy. And a sleepy me shouldn’t blog. The spelling. The writing. The use of exclamation marks will all be a tad unedited!!!! Not that I spend too long editing – feel free to point out any blog bloopers!

Anyway…

Aren’t first lines so important? One of my favourite pastimes in my much beloved local Waterstones is picking up books (of course) and reading the blurbs (who could resist?), admiring the cover (I love a good cover design) and reading those all so important first few words (yay words).

So, without further delay (and since the first line is so short I’ve included the first 3 lines) –

Two silhouettes stood in the clearing. The only things visible were their wings: A pair of white and a pair of black. The rest was covered in dark clothing, to make sure no one could recognise them.

Hmmm… I’m not sure about the different colours of silhouettes… shouldn’t it have been black wings and maybe slightly lighter dark grey wings, or just two dark silhouettes? Argh! Or maybe I have just misinterpreted the imagery. Or maybe I am overthinking it. I have been known to overthink. A. Lot.

What do you think?

And now for the book blurb…

When two angels break their deal with the devil, he comes for the one thing they’re trying to protect.

All 16-year-old Nora wants is to graduate high school and visit her family in Italy. But when two boys transfer to her class, everything changes.

Danny steals her friends, Ben her first kiss.

When Nora finds out the boys are not who they claim to be, she faces a difficult choice.

Will she give her love or her life?

Sounds interesting, right? It kind of reminds me of the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Have you read it?

First line Friday is hosted over at Hoarding Books.
