Book Beginnings + Friday 56: Flight of the Raven (The Ravenwood Saga #2) by Morgan L. Busse

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading. Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and asks you to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your ereader and share a non-spoilery sentence or two.

About the Book
Selene Ravenwood, once the heir to House Ravenwood, is now an exile. On the run and free of her family's destiny, Selene hopes to find the real reason her family was given the gift of dreamwalking. But first she must adapt to her new life as wife to Lord Damien Maris, the man she was originally assigned to kill.

While adjusting to her marriage and her home in the north, her power over dreams begins to grow. As the strongest dreamwalker to exist in ages, her expanding power attracts not only nightmares but the attention of the Dark Lady herself.

With a war looming on the horizon and a wicked being after her gift, Selene is faced with a choice: embrace the Dark Lady's offer, or search out the one who gave her the gift of dreamwalking. One path offers power, the other offers freedom. But time is running out, and soon her choice will be made for her.

Book Beginning
So dark.

Friday 56
Was Selene using her dreamwalking gift on others around the castle? Was there more to her gift than either of them realized?
Were his people in danger?

Do you think that readers make better employees, as opposed to non-readers? Why or why not?

Hmm. I don't know. I've never thought about it. I think it just depends on the type of person they are, not necessarily if they're readers or not.

What have you been reading lately?

  7. I like the teaser better than the opening. I prefer long, shaggy opening sentences to one or two word non-sentence openings. Thanks for posting the book on Book Beginnings!
