Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include include the title and author so others know what you’re reading.
My book beginning today is from Angels’ Flight by Nalini Singh. This is a series of four novella length stories set in her Guild Hunter Universe. Two have been published before but all but one are new to me. Here is the opening line from the first story in the book Angels’s Pawn.
“This is a surprise, Cher,” Janavier said in that lazy drawl of his, one hand braced on the doorjamb of his Louisiana apartment. “far as I know, I don’t have a hit out on me.”
Here is what Goodreads has to say about each story:
In Angel’s Wolf a vampire becomes fascinated with the seductive angel who rules Louisiana. But all is not what it appears to be in her court.
In Angels’ Judgment a hunter must track one of her own gone bad, while surviving the deadly tests placed in her way by the archangels themselves. Unexpected backup comes from a stranger who might just be the most lethal threat of all…
Plus FIRST TIME IN PRINT
In Angels’ Pawn a vampire hunter faces off against two rival factions and the angel manipulating them both, and a vampire whose help is not entirely selfless…
And NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED
In Angels’ Dance an angel trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge finds herself under siege by a warrior angel from a martial court.
