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.
This book is one that I’ve been waiting for, and it’s perfection…
I can’t believe that we are more than six months into this year!! Where has the time gone? For me I’ve been way more particular about what I read. That means that if I finish a book and put it on my “books that own me” shelf that it didn’t get there easily.
As I reflected on what I have read so far this year, I decided to focus on my favorite thing about reading. Falling in love with the characters. Well, the male character that is…There is only one new book boyfriend on this list, but there are also recurring favorites.
Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.
A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.
While I wait patiently ***rolling eyes*** for Amy to finish writing Iniquity, the last book in her fabulous Premonition series, I get spend some time with one of my favorite book boyfriends from 2013, Trey Allairis. I have yet to be disappointed with anything that Amy writes, Sea of Stars is no exception.
