FIRST LINES FRIDAY [24-Feb-2017] – @words_wandering


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?
  • 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!

Being a banshee is hard. Being a hybrid banshee who is mostly human is harder.
Seven was used to seeing Death. Only banshees could see him, and Seven handed him souls on a regular basis. Even so, knowing he was coming, that someone was about to die—it made her nervous. So when she saw him standing by the school bus, watching silently, her heart sank a little.
She stopped outside his field of vision, wondering who he watched. His black cloak hid him entirely. She wasn’t sure he even had feet, and when he moved, he sort of floated. No, the only part of Death she could see besides his thin white hands were his glowing red eyes. He wasn’t a bad guy at all, but his eyes? They were terrifying. A little bit.

Read on to find out which book this extract is from…


Banshee at the Gate (The Gates of Atlantis #1) by Wendy Knight

Version: Kindle Edition

296 pages | Pub Date: 24 July 2014 | Six Gates Press


Goodreads Excerpt

Half-breed banshee, Seven, likes her life. She leads souls safely to Death and she has the planet’s most awesome dad and little brother. But a cryptic message from Atlantis asking for her help changes all that. And then there’s Death, who has decided it’s time to take her brother’s soul. Now she’s racing across the world, trying to stay one step ahead of Death.
Unfortunately, getting to Atlantis from Ireland isn’t easy, and there are evil minions determined to keep her away every time she turns around. But fighting for their lives teaches Seven one very important lesson—she isn’t human, and she isn’t a banshee. She has to be both if she wants to save her brother and make it back home alive.
