The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Thieftaker (Thieftaker Chronicles #1) by D.B. Jackson



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 the May The Force Read With You Readathon books that I've just finished, Thieftaker (Thieftaker Chronicles #1) by D.B. Jackson.  So far this sounds like it's going to be a really cool historical fantasy novel set pre-American Revolution.  Plus, just look at that cover art by Chris McGrath!

Beginning:

Boston, Province of Massachusetts Bay,
August 26, 1765

Ethan Kaille eased his knife from the leather sheath on his belt as he approached Griffin's Wharf, the words of a warding spell on his lips.

56:

"Don't you dare!" a voice warned, echoing off the ceiling and stone walls.  "Not in this place!"


Are you taking part in this readathon?  Have you read this book?  What are you reading today?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commeting down below!

  5. I not sure I get a fix on your book from the quotes but I do like reading historical fiction. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I hope you do get a chance to read both of my books mentioned this week in different posts. Have you read Hank Green's first novel? Start there if not.
