Friday 56 an Book Beginnings: Fractured Suns (Broken Skies #2) by Theresa Kay

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.

Please join us over at RoseCityReader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

We came in peace. Lie.
We had no role in the Collapse. Lie.
I have always been honest. Lie.
I never lied to her. Truth.
     Reunited with her brother, and surrounded by Flint, Peter and her new-found grandfather, Jax Mitchell has still never felt more alone. The choice to follow Rym back to the city to find answers and see Lir is an easy one, but their reunion is cut short and Jax is forced to leave Lir behind. She finds herself traveling with some unexpected companions and heading back toward a place she’d hoped to never see again.
     After being imprisoned—and tortured—on the orders of his uncle, Lir hasn’t seen daylight or linked to anyone in weeks. After a lifetime of connection, the pain and loneliness is almost too much to bear. Elated that Jax actually came, Lir finds renewed hope and the strength to continue fighting his uncle's influence over the E'rikon, even when things look hopeless and Lir’s been branded a traitor by the very people he’s trying to save.
     While Jax and Lir fight separate battles, their missions have more in common than they realize. It’s a race against time to stop men driven only by greed and power. But the ones they trust the most might be the very people working against them—and "family" doesn't mean what it used to. Will they recognize their friends from their enemies in time to save the people they love or will they lose each other in the process?

Review of Book one, Broken Skies

Book Beginning:
     Tiercel skims the air just above the ground, a yellow-tipped arrow covered in brown and white feathers. He flies so low that the tips of the meadow grass brush against the underside of his wings.

     Descriptive start, but nothing to really draw me in the way I prefer.

My 56:
     "Arrogant jerks. The both of you... but especially you." I jam one finger into Gavin's chest. "You knew I wanted to see Flint and you decided to play these stupid little mind games with me by avoiding me. What? Was it some sort of power play? Did you think it would give you the upper hand somehow? For that matter, did you think at all?"

     She sure is sassy. This is a little further than I am in the book right now, and currently she's hasn't gotten this sassy yet. I look forward to what it is that made her snap.


  1. For some reason it seems like I have seen a cover almost identical to this one lately. You are right she does sound sassy.

    1. This cover is really similar to the first book in the series. Maybe that's the one you're thinking of?

  2. I still need to read the first in this series!

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

  3. I am not sure about this book from the two quotes. But I do like the idea of it.

    1. For some reason I can't comment on your blog.
      Your 56 sounds interesting, though I'm not sure if it's the book for me.

  7. Hmm I'm intrigued but I'm also not quite sure whether this is one for me! The teasers grabbed my attention but I should probably check out the first book first xD Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
