#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Sixteen)

FLFIt’s time for #FirstLineFriday! On Friday, authors post the first one or first two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a published work  on their blog, and title the post #FirstLineFriday (just like this). It’s  a lot of fun, so feel free to join in! You can share your link on my blog comments, or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind FLF).

Today’s first line comes from Chapter Sixteen of Masque of the Vampire (available for pre-order with an April 1st release date) :

Katelina gaped at the grisly sight before her. Nestled in the center of the broken weeds and sprinkled with snow lay the torn body of a boy.

Might seem like it’s giving something away, but since the book description says there’s some murders going on, it’s about time we got one. (It took a LOT longer to get to it in the plot than I initially imagined.)

What do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?

  1. I like when any chapter starts with an “oh, shit!” moment.

    So I like this one 🙂
    Can’t wait to read this one!

  2. Sounds like something Stephen King might have wrote. And you know I love me some Stephen King!

  3. Suitably ominous. Not really a boy, though?

  4. Can’t wait to read this book!!!

  5. I LOVE how descriptive this was in so few words. I’m looking forward to reading this when it comes out!!
