Welcome to First-Line Friday! 🙂 And Happy Fall!

The book I’m featuring today is:

Shadow of the Storm

{Out of Egypt, Book 2}

by Connilyn Cossette

And the first line is:

17 Tammuz – 4th Month Out from Egypt

Wild drumbeats rumbled through the ground like distant thunder, pulsing in defiant rhythms and vibrating the hollows of my chest. My fingertips echoed the beat against my knee until a glare from my mother across the tent stilled their dance.

I loved and recommend Connilyn Cossette’s debut novel in this Biblical fiction series ~ You can find my review for that HERE ~ and I’ve been wanting to continue reading the series ever since. 🙂 Now, with books 2 & 3 on my TBR shelf, it’s just a question of finding the reading time.

Now, it’s your turn! What’s the first line of your current book – or the one nearest to you?
Or let me know – What’s a Biblical fiction novel that you’d recommend?
Then head on over to find out what first-lines these other First-Line-Friday folks are sharing today:

    That is an excellent first line. It really sets the scene in the readers mind quite clearly.

    Finding time to read all the books I want is impossible…but I’m trying.
    Here’s what I’m sharing today.
    How dare the stars still light the night and the James River continue to flow, when the one who made Lettie’s life bearable was gone?
    This is the first line from chapter 1 (not the prologue) of Carrie Fancett Pagels novella “Love’s Escape” in The Captive Brides Collection.

    Connilyn’s series is on my MUST read list!

    I’m sharing the first line from Becky Wade’s True to You. “Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn’t all fun and games.”
