The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Hollow Empire (Poison Wars #2) by Sam Hawke

 



On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 


Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my current Mythothon books, Hollow Empire (Poison Wars #2) by Sam Hawke.  I loved the first book in this series and I'm so glad to be back.

Beginning: 

You never get used to poisoning a child.

56:

She fixed me with her stare, long enough to make me squirm uncomfortably like a child.

  10. Ooh, I've been meaning to read this series! That first line, though. Now I'm all sorts of curious. Think I'm definitely going to have to look at grabbing the first book of this.
