Wow, is it Friday already? Where has this week gone?! What with an assignment due in, several nice outings and a birthday, it's been a pretty busy week and I've hardly had any time to read at all. :( I haven't even finished last week's Patricia Cornwell book, but I have managed to start a new e-book, 'The Undertaker', by William F. Brown (review to come).
So, 'The Undertaker' has a prologue, and I'll give you the first line from that:
"We decided to put it all down on paper in case they came after us again"
Now I love this opening, as it immediately caught my attention. This line is on a page of its own, before the rest of the prologue, so it makes a real statement and it isn't the kind of thing that you can miss or gloss over. At this stage, we don't know who the 'We' or the 'they' are yet, but to know that someone is in danger right from the start I find really exciting. I'm already scared of whoever 'they' are!
I'm looking forward to ploughing into the rest of this book during the week ahead, so look out for the review coming soon!
