Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
To be completely honest, I haven’t truly started reading this book, but it’s been on my TBR list for years. That’s right, I have books on my Kindle app that been there that long. I am a huge fan of Julie Kagawa, so I am excited to dive into this series…
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny – one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth Meghan Chase has a secret destiny – one she could never have imagined…- that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
The Ghost in the Computer
Ten years ago, on my sixth birthday, my father disappeared.
No, He didn’t leave. Leaving would imply suitcases and empty drawers, and late birthday cards with ten-dollar bill stuffed inside. Leaving would imply he was unhappy with Mom and me, or that he found a new love elsewhere. None of that was true. He also did not die, because we would’ve heard about it. There was no car crash, no body, no police mingling about the scene of the brutal murder. It all happened very quietly.
On my sixth birthday, my father took me to the park, one of my favorite places to go at that time. It was a lonely little park in the middle of nowhere, with a running trail and a misty green pond surrounded by pine trees. We were at the edge of the pond, feeding the ducks, when I heard the jingle of an ice cream truck in the parking lot over the hill. When I begged my dad to get me a Creamsicle, he laughed, handed me a few bills, and sent me after the truck.
That was the last time I saw him.
Well. that is definitely intriguing. I haven’t read anything from the Fairy/Fae genre in a long time, so I am looking forward to this. I’ve heard amazing things about this series, so if anyone who has read this series and wants to share their thoughts, please do so in the comments.
