Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?
This week I'm featuring an intro from a September release I've been anxious to begin.
Little Brown & Co - Hachette Book Group
"THEY SAID I MUST DIE. They said that I stole the breath from men and now they must steal mine. I imagine, then, that we are all candle flames, greasy-bright fluttering in the darkness and the howl of the wind, and in the stillness of the room I hear footsteps, coming to blow me out and to send my life up away from me in a gray wreath of smoke. I will vanish into the air and the night. They will blow us all out, one by one, until it is only their own light by which they see themselves. Where will I be then?"
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
