Friday book share was created by Shelley Wilson. Please check out her website for the rules. This is my first time of taking part.
I am currently reading Thief’s Magic book 1 Millennium’s Rule by Trudi Canavan.
First line of the book
‘The corpse’s shrivelled, unbending fingers surrendered the bundle reluctantly.’
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb
Sometimes magic lies within…
When the young student Tyen unearths an ancient book, it opens the door to a realm of mystery and danger. For it holds a clue to a disaster facing the world.
Elsewhere, in a land ruled by priests, Rielle has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she has a talent for it, and desperate times may force her to risk the Angels’s wrath.
But not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe. Not the nature of magic – and not even the people they trust.
Introduce the main character using only three words
Tyen – Resourceful, talented, naïve.
Your favourite line / scene
From the beginning of the book.
‘He’d never heard of a person turning into a book before. How is that possible? he wondered.
I was made by a powerful sorcerer, replied the text.He took my knowledge and flesh and transformed me.
His skin tingled. The book had responded to the question he’d shaped in his mind. Do you mean these pages are made of your flesh? he asked.
Yes. My cover and pages are my skin. My binding is my hair, twisted together and sewn with needles fashioned from my bones and glue from tendons.‘
I’m over half way through and enjoying the book. I look forward to reviewing it next week.
