First Line Friday (Week 2)
Welcome to the second week of First Line Friday’s post!
I looked down the row of Aska hunched against each other, ducking behing the muddy hill.”
2 lines because I couldn’t just leave ya’ll with two words. 🙂
Read my review of Sky in the Deep: Sky in the Deep: Book Review.
I still can’t get over how beautiful this cover is.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
