The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Invaded by Melissa Landers


Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.


I'm also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader.
  The rules are pretty simple - you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires.  Don't forget to link up your post's url with Rose City Reader.

This week I'm spotlighting my current read, Invaded (Alienated #2) by Melissa Landers. I enjoyed the first installment a good deal more than I expected so I'm excited to see what happens in the sequel.


Book Beginning: 

Car a frowned at the starched gray duffel bag at Aelyx's feet.  It was identical to the one he'd brought to Earth last fall when he'd travelled from L'eihr to stay with her for senior year.

56:

If Cara was going to do this, she'd do it right. Taking a deep breath, she peeled back the lapels of her robe and pulled her arms free, then handed the garment to Alona and faced  the sea of clones, staring through them as they'd done to her.

  1. I haven't read the first book yet. I'm really wondering what's going on in your 56.
