First lines Fridays #13

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

I rise to my feet when he lets me. The chain jerks me up, pulling on the thorned collar at my throat. Its points dig in not enough to draw blood-not yet.
