Friday 56 and Book Beginnings: Frozen Tides (Falling Kingdoms #4) by Morgan Rhodes

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.

I am finally getting around to reading this book. Only took me close to a year.

Book Beginning:
35 years ago
The pitch black monster reached toward the young boy with horrible, long-fingered hands, pressing him down into his bed, smothering him. It did this every night. And every night, the boy was terrified.
Great opening. Writing like this is why this is in my top 5 favorite series.

My 56:
The flames engulfed his mouth and face until his entire body, head to toe, became a torch. Then, suddenly, the fire turned from deep amber to brilliant blue--just as Kyan's eyes had.
Wha..... I can't wait to get to this part of the book. Who and what, why and how.


  1. I love the covers for this series, but unfortunately I couldn't get into the first book. I really wanted to and I liked the prologue, but it just wasn't working for me.

  2. I really like the beginning and the 56. I haven't started this part of the series yet, but I did read the first book in the spin-off series.

  3. I loved to be hooked from the opening page and this does sound like a fab series. Happy reading.

  4. Nice excerpts. I'm sure you're going to love it. Here's my Friday read -Wastedby Mark Winkler.

  5. I haven't had a chance to even begin this series yet. It sounds like one I need to add to my list. I am spotlighting a mystery this week - The Silence of Murder by Dandi Daley Mackall. Happy reading!

  6. I have this one but forgot it was on my Kindle. Now, I 'm going to go find it!

  7. I've heard this series is great but haven't started it myself. I want to though! Happy weekend!

  8. Compelling opening and beautiful cover. The 56 excerpt sounds scary! This sounds like a can't-put-down book.
    My Friday post features CHASING CHARLIE.

  9. I love the cover and both the beginning and 56 sound seriously intense! Hope you enjoy it!

  10. I usually don't read these kinds of books, but that 56 had me interested! :D
    My Friday 56! :D

  11. I can't even remember if I've seen this cover but I love it! I like the beginning and the 56 too. Here's my Friday meme

  12. I keep meaning to try this series and I am waiting for the first book from the library. Just popular books take awhile to get. Happy Weekend!
