Book Beginnings…

Book Beginnings with Rose City Reader

Here’s how it works…

On Friday share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

I’m reading an ARC of Nexus by one of my favorite authors, C.L. Parker. This is the last book of the Supernova trilogy, and is available for pre-order. It’s release date is September 27th, and I’ll be reviewing Nexus as part of the blog tour next Friday.

Here are the opening two sentences:

Looking out over the garden in the early morning, Kerrigan Cruz smiled to herself. It may not have been the mystical refuge she had grown accustomed to, but it was at least an acceptable surrogate to her sanctuary- about as close to what used to be her once sacred place.

My impressions thus far:

One of the reasons that I love C.L. Parker is because she writes beautifully. I’ve said many times that I favor descriptive writing because I’m a visual reader…I see the story in my head as I’m reading it. C.L. is great at giving me the visuals I need with her words. She’s also very gifted at writing erotica well, and she infuses humor wonderfully. Those are two other traits I admire greatly.

So far I’m extremely pleased with how the story is developing.

Anybody want to share your book beginning?

    “I knew I should have sent her to boarding school, Tessa Scuderi thought as she sat at her kitchen table listening to her sixteen year old sister explain how Robby Parker had knocked her up in a round of passion under the bleacher during the Lucy’s Lake high Christmas dance six weeks ago.”

    I love well-done opening sentence that are long. This one has told us; the time of year, two of the main characters, where they are, approximate ages and social-economic status.
    I want to read more. This story sounds like it will be humorous and possibly have some level of raciness.
    As I read this I discover that I have another favorite author to add to my list.
