First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

First Lines:

When her life flashed before her eyes, Elora wanted to forget it all.

The balance that had the power to turn her into a fae shattered into tiny pieces inside her heart. Its power spread all through her body. All reality ceased to exist as memories replayed in her mind.


Do you recognize the lines?

Hint: It’s the third book in a series.

Still not sure? Here’s another hint:
