First Lines Fridays (21) – September 3, 2021

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?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) 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!

Today’s First Lines:

“Sylvestri Yarrow tried not to scream in frustration as she looked at the numbers before her. Why hadn’t anyone warned her how expensive it was to own a ship? Between the rising cost of fuel and the Nihil threat forcing them to alter their routes, she and her crew were barely scraping by.”

Thoughts & Comments

The synopsis and first lines don’t really give anything away about what this book is about. I’m looking forward to it, though, because it has some of my favorite characters from the High Republic era.

Does this book sound like something you would like? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments!
