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!

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.
