Friday 56: Dead Radiance by T.G. Ayer

This is 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


Synopsis:
    "Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow. But it is only when her best friend dies that she discovers the meaning of those beautiful golden auras — Death. Alone, lost in the foster system, she struggles to understand who she is and why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead. 
     The new foster kid, Aidan, isn’t helping any. Mr. Perfect seems to fit in no matter what, making her feel even more pathetic. But when his affections turn to her, Bryn finds him hard to resist. Impossible actually. A mystery himself, Aidan disappears, leaving behind a broken heart and a mysterious book that suggests Bryn might not be entirely human.
     Bryn stands at the threshold of a journey of discovery. Will destiny help her find herself, find her purpose and her place in a world in which she’d never belonged?"



My 56:
"I sank onto the bed and flicked the lamp on. The book and its intricately carved leather binding weaved its spell around me. I opened it, allowing the book to fall open naturally to a well-used page. To the painting of the Valkyrie called Brunhilde. This time more notes filled the margins, and one particular newly printed phrase jumped out, boldly written and circled again in red ink.

    Brunhilde -  Bright Warrior =  Bryn."

  1. Oh! Is Bryn the person reading? Or someone the reader knows? This is what runs through my head. Here's my post. http://ebogie.blogspot.com/2015/03/book-beginnings-page-56-shepherdess-of.html

    1. Bryn is the narrator of the story, so it's her reading.

  5. Luv the Friday 56. I want to get my hands on that book. It's described so beautifully. Is it a beautiful book or an ugly book? Either way I would like to see it and maybe hold it.
