The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): At the Table of Wolves (Dark Talents #1) by Kay Kenyon



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 Name-a-Thon reads, At the Table of Wolves (Dark Talents #1) by Kay Kenyon.  This is a cool little alternate history so far - all I had to hear was Agent Carter meets X-Men.

Beginning: 

Wesermarsch Sub Camp
North Coast of Germany

Friday, March 27, 1936.  In the distance, across the marshland, a large black car sped under a leaden sky toward the gates of the sub camp.  The road led straight across the wild plain with its sere yellow grasses.  Beyond lay the immense gray wilderness of the North Sea, stretching all the way to the British Isles.

56:

At that moment, she spied an old man being escorted by an orderly down the hall in her direction.  He was so thin, he looked skeletal, and his six-foot height was crowned with a green plaid tam.  He pointed to her quite rudely, but the orderly took no notice and steered the old man into what might have been the privy.
