Book Beginnings on Friday (2)

Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.

Fractured by Teri Terry

Rain has many uses.
Holly and beech trees like those around me need it to live and grow.
It washes away tracks, obscures footprints. Makes trails harder to follow, and that is a good thing today.
But most of all, it washes blood from my skin, my clothes. I stand, shivering, as the heavens open. Hold out my hands and arms, rub them again and again in the freezing rain, traces of scarlet long gone from my skin but I can't stop.

Fractured (Slated, #2)

This book picks up right where Slated left off. Kyla found herself in a situation where she had to defend herself, and much to her surprise, she was fully capable of doing so.

My review of Slated here.


  1. Ooh, love the excerpt...thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. Great beginning! It really makes you wonder what has happened to her and whose blood it is. Thanks for sharing! I am hosting a book giveaway on my Book Beginnings post today. If you are interested, please click over and comment for a chance to win. Have a great day!

  3. Chilling...shall I say thanks for sharing? :)

    My book beginnings is from THE WEDDING GIFT...if you like the "teaser" I finished it today and reviewed the book if you care to check out the review.

    It is a book EVERY woman should read.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. Hope you have a great day.

  4. The author certainly knows how to grab the reader's attention! I agree with Elizabeth; that's a rather chilling opener. But it does leave you wondering. I think it would be hard to put the book down for the next several pages at least.

    1. Yes she does! Its actually picks up right where the first one left off- it's not action packed per se but here she is recovering from something that happened in the last book. I think we're going to find out more in this second one!

  5. I haven't read this series. It sound like an attention grabber. Here is my Book Beginning at Mixed Book Bag

  6. Wow, haunting beginning! Definitely a good start to make you want to read further and find out what's going on!

    Here's my Book Beginnings Post!

    1. I thought it was a powerful beginning. It picks up right from the last one and she kicked a little butt and now has to recover f/ that. I'm definetly curious. :)
