The Friday 56: The Silent Deal by Levi Stack

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.

"Look!" said Romulus. "We know the Leopard banned the cards, and we know something's happening in Staryi Castle. If we could just get in—" 

"You're mad if you think I'm going to break into the castle! Especially when so many people know about the king of spades: Lady Nutrix, Kamdrac, the Crossbones Clan, the girls—they can turn on us anytime they want!" 

"But they won't!" Romulus argued. 

"I don't care. It's time. We must talk to your grandmother." 

"I told you a hundred times: That's—not—an option."

  1. My interest is definitely piqued, and I'm wondering how the author used a deck of cards in creating his story.
    My Friday post features THE 13 OF HEARTS.

    1. I'm just about to start this one, so I'll be finding out... it sounds like a really interesting blend of fantasy, adventure, and historical fiction.

      Thanks for sharing!

  2. I really love the cover, it's so creative and suitable to the story! Thanks for sharing, I've never heard of this one before.

    1. It's pretty new and I'll be reading it as a read for review. :)

  3. This one sounds interesting. I'm curious why talking to the grandmother is so definitely not an option!

    1. Very much so! I'm curious, too. I can't wait to start in on it!

  4. I'm thinking he just wants to protect his grandmother. Happy reading and have a lovely weekend.

  5. Not my usual read, but the excerpt pulled me in...and now I'm definitely intrigued. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's mine: “THE TWILIGHT HOUR”

  6. His grandmother must be pretty powerful if he is resisting going to her for help. Sounds like an interesting story.
    Happy weekend!

  7. Wow. Wow. Wow. What a cover and opening. Thanks for sharing on my blog.
