First Line Friday #147

First Line Friday is hosted once again by Carrie at Reading is My Superpower. You can visit HERE to go directly to the FLF page of her blog.

"Bondi Wynstanson stared enthralled as across a blood-red sky, countless black birds soared."

Have a line to share? Leave a link and let me know!

Happy Reading


  1. Nice descriptive opener. And a bit intriguing - what made the birds start to fly?

  2. "My name is Jimmy Flannery. Maybe you remember I had a little trouble last winter over a gorilla named Baby who's supposed to have killed two gay men, but didn't."

    Hip-Deep in Alligators by Robert Campbell

  3. My first line comes from the first chapter of The Mark if Zgrace by KimberleyWoodhouse:
    Monday, May 3, 1909 El Tovar Hotel, Grand Canyon
    Spoons clattered against pots. Steam sputtered out from under lids. The scent of fresh-baked bread and brewing coffee filled the air.

  4. Your book looks cool!

    Happy Friday!
    I am finishing up The Rose and the Thistle by Laura Frantz, so I will share a line from there.
    "Davie is in the tower."
    I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Cool cover and great first line. It's funny how much more attention I pay to first lines since starting this meme! Happy Reading.

  6. Great descriptive opening! I hope you enjoy this one! Have a great weekend!

  7. That is an intriguing opening and I need to take a look at this 1066 saga series. It looks like something I might enjoy.

    1. The first book is called What Fates Impose, which was great! The author also wrote a story for a 1066 anthology called 1066 Turned Upside Down. It explores all different possible scenarios for what could have happened. It was SO good!

  8. That's a cool cover! I'm currently reading The sisters of Sea View by Julie Klassen. The first line is: "April 1819. Sarah Summers carefully lifted the family heirloom, a warm mantle of nostalgia settling over her." Hope you had a great weekend!
