First Chapter, First Paragraph #6: Athena's Ashes by Jamie Grey!!


First Chapter, First Paragraph is one of the two memes that I will be alternating on Thursdays in place of my Ink & Batter posts during the summer, when I won't be baking due to the heat!

I discovered this meme via the ladies of My Shelf Confessions, and it is hosted on Tuesdays by Bibliophile by the Sea. But since I already have my blog tours posts and Tell Me Tuesdays, I thought that it'd work best on Thursdays for me!

The idea of this meme/feature is quite self-explanatory from its name, we share the first paragraph of the first chapter of our current read! Quite a good teaser for others to read and see if they'd be intrigued!

This week I'm sharing a bit of an ARC I got last week, that is on my list of ARC August! Thank you Jamie for it to sending me! I'm quite excited to see what all is coming for Renna!


Athena's Ashes by Jamie Grey

"For someone who was supposed to be the best thief in the galaxy, Renna had been spending entirely too much time locked up lately.

Not that a high security hospital room in a secret MYTH base was much of a prison for her, but the IV line snaking from her arm might as well have been a pair of Saltani iron handcuffs. She swung her feet over the edge of the lumpy bed and watched the holoscreen on the far wall. Stats scrolled past, red text on the black background. Her vitals were stable, blood pressure was fine. Looking at her chart, she was the picture of health."

  2. Just from this one paragraph, I can tell that the worldbuilding is very intriguing! I know how much you liked Srar Thief, and I hope you're enjoying this one just as much. I promise to find time for both soon.

  5. I love the very first sentence in a book. I always read it 2-3 times and let it sink in. Is that weird? That's pretty weird eh? haah.But really a great start can make or break a book sometimes. It sets the mood and gives you expectations. This one is reeaaaly intriguing imo!!

    1. I agree that the beginning of a book can make or break the impression of it, Giselle!
