Book Beginnings on Friday, July 27 2012
Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. 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.Liar’s Game by Kait Gamble is Science Fiction Romance with a difference. Aurelia and Keys have know each other for years. Aurelia is the captain of the space ship and Keys is her first mate. Aurelia doesn’t pursue Keys because she thinks he has no interest in her and Keys thinks he is not good enough for Aurelia and so doesn’t show how he really feels. It takes a liar showing up on the ship to change that. There is more than one lie in the story and that keeps everything moving. This was a fun story to read. I actually finished Liar’s Game yesterday but loved the very long opening sentence. It caught my attention right away so I decided to use it for this Book Beginning.
“Aurelia Popkiss glared at the half-dozen men who dared to board her ship and didn’t know what annoyed her more: the fact that eight meagerly armed men though they would take them so easily, or the imbecile currently blocking her shot.”
