It’s seriously Friday already?! I have barely posted this week, more on why on a post later.
First Lines Fridays is hosted by Wandering Words.
Here are the rules (as outlined by Wandering Words):
- 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
In three weeks, Neomi Vidal will die–here, in this very place.
Today is just practice. “
Scroll down for more info about the book.
She’s a soldier.
Noemi Vidal is seventeen years old and sworn to protect her planet, Genesis. She’s willing to risk anything–including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she’s a rebel.
He’s a machine.
Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel has advanced programming that’s begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he’s an abomination.
Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they’re not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they’re forced to question everything they’d been taught was true.”
Defy the Stars is actually not released yet, but I was able to snag a copy on NetGalley. It’s being released in a couple weeks, so stay tuned to read my review of it!
