First Lines Friday #9

It is Friday and you know what that means!!! It’s time for another…First Lines Fridays!!! 🥳🎉

I haven’t done one of these in ages. Life’s been pretty hectic lately. I got a new job, where I’m still adjusting to new work procedures, people, and just a lot of sitting around. My old phone isn’t very up to the challenge and can’t even last a full shift! Currently waiting for my new phone and am really looking forward to use WordPress on it. Bigger screen and bigger battery!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!


Life sliced into tiny moments.


Cason Cole beneath a shattered door. Smells: eggy gunpowder smoke, rose petals, sweat, sex. Sounds: someone screaming. Another someone gurgling. A high pitched eeeeeeeeeee in the deep of Carson’s ear.


Do you know the book? Hmm?

It is…

Unclean Spirits by Chuck Wendig

Genre: Urban Fantasy | Horror
Published: May 7th 2013 by Abaddon
Length: 320 pages

The force of nature that is Chuck Wendig returns with an original urban fantasy novel, creating a brand new series for Abaddon Books.

Five years ago, it all went wrong for Cason Cole. He lost his wife and son, lost everything, and was bound into service to a man who chews up human lives and spits them out, a predator who holds nothing dear and respects no law. Now, as the man he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the sounds of the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free. The gods and goddesses are real. A polytheistic pantheon—a tangle of divine hierarchies—once kept the world at an arm’s length, warring with one another for mankind’s belief and devotion. It was a grim and bloody balance, but a balance just the same. When one god triumphed, driving all other gods out of Heaven, it was back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who spite them. None of which is going to stop Cason from getting back what’s his…

Happy reading and have a lovely weekend ❤
