The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The City of Dusk (The Dark Gods #1) by Tara Sim



On Friday's I take part in two 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!  How is it already the end of June?  This week I'm spotlighting one of my Pride Month 2023 books, The City of Dusk (The Dark Gods #1) by Tara Sim.  This dark fantasy series opener just sounds really cool.


The flash of a dying star made the boy pause and look up.


The soldiers stared back at him, either unimpressed or nervous.  He wouldn't fault them either way.

Have you read this book?  What are you reading this month?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. Sounds intriguing. Have a wonderful weekend ☕📚☀️💜😊

  2. Sounds good, not what I expected when I looked at the cover. The cover gave me pirate vibes. Happy weekend!

  3. I had mixed feelings about this book, but I may still read the sequel. Enjoy!

  4. Sounds very dark indeed. The cover is creepily attractive. I'm late visiting First Lines/56 this time around but I hope you're having a good reading week!
