Friday 56 and Book Beginnings {Stormfront by K.R. Conway}




The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, as well as Book Beginnings which is hosted by Rose City Reader.  Post one or a few sentences from page or percentage 56 from any book, as well as the first sentence (or sentences) of a book you would like to highlight.

Title: Stormfront (Undertow #2)
Author: K.R. Conway
Published: August 18th, 2014

This is the second book in a series, so the synopsis contains spoilers for the first book, but the quotes below do not!
Synopsis
Not long ago Eila Walker’s choices were limited: death by a bullet to the head, or at the hands of her beloved bodyguard, Raef. Now, five weeks after Raef triggered her power and she nearly leveled a historic mansion, Eila is dealing with the fall-out of her decisions. While she doesn’t remember dying in the arms of the soul thief who loves her, she knows that Raef remembers everything about the night he nearly killed her.

Now on the mend and attempting to keep one step ahead of the FBI, Eila and her team of misfits are desperate for a bit of normal. Eila is trying to navigate high school, while her BFF Ana is cautiously hanging with past-boyfriend and soul thief, Kian. Shape-shifter, MJ, is trying not to piss off his mother, while Raef is coping with his fears that Eila will never be safe.

But just as “normal” seems within their grasp, a powerfully built newcomer arrives. Raef knows the scarred man as a Blacklist Dealer – a soul thief, who peddles the names of humans who deserve to die. Eila, however, knows him as the protective hunter from the woods, who she nicknames Thor. Before long, Raef and Eila realize they’ve met the same killer, and he has one hell of a story to tell the five friends . . . if Raef doesn’t murder him first.

I prayed we couldn’t be seen by whoever else was in the house, now that we were hidden among the racks of long dresses and dark jeans.  I slid the necklace over my head and it rested against my chest, pinned in beneath the book I was clutching.  My nerves were at DefCon One.

Jail. Prison. The Pen.

I was defiantly going to be wearing a striped jumpsuit.

First Sentence:
I had a kill mark.

Why This Quote?
I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the third book to come out!  I think that the quotes above really give readers a good glimpse into Conway’s writing style!

  4. I'm guessing if I read the first book I might understand the first-line quote. <a href="http://headfullofbooks.blogspot.com>My Friday Quotes</a>
