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.
