First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

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!

The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, #3)

Tbh, I’m quite frightened to read this book. Because it’s the end of the trilogy, yet there are books after it. Which means something bad is going to happen if this is the end yet not the end. Either way, I’m not prepared to read this book at all!!!

Talk to me!
For those who have read this, is my fear justified?
Will I be emotionally destroyed?

  1. I haven’t read the other books but I do know they’re set 300 years after these ones so I’m really interested to read them and see how they connect! Sanderson’s writing really pays off in this book though, I was totally wowed when I got to the end and all the threads came together, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what you think of it.
