First Lines Friday: 3rd December

first lines fridays

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.  Judge a book by its opening lines, and not by its cover!

The rules:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (or your current read) 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!

For thousands of years the Cursed Ones hid in the shadows, fooling mankind into thinking they didn’t exist.  Then one day they just… stopped.  Skeptics turned into believers one fateful dawn.  And no one was ever safe again.

Read on to find out which book this extract is from…

Craving the support of her fighting partner, Antonio – and his touch – she finds herself betrayed by someone close. Her relationship with Antonio holds its own dangers, but right now Jean needs someone she can trust…
