The Friday 56 (Nov. 14, 2014)

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

For one second Maanik's eyes rolled to meet hers and Caitlin felt raw horror wash down her spine.  She had seen young people trapped in terrible circumstances - held hostage by a parent, pinned by a landslide -  but here she felt as if she were looking at someone who had wakened in a coffin and found herself buried alive.  The girl took an uncertain step and her eyes rolled to the ceiling.  She was still trying to scream.
 *This book was so fascinating!  Enter my giveaway to win it HERE. 

Noise swells from the cryo room, interrupting my dark thoughts.  At first I think it's just the natural volume of fifteen hundred people cramped together in one giant room, but then a voice screams in fury over the sound of all the others.


  1. I'm sure A Vision of Fire is a good story, but all those rolling eyes bothered me! I'm curious about the cryo room in Shades of Earth. Why are 1500 people cramped into one room? What's going on? I hope you're enjoying both books.
    My Friday post features THE 13 OF HEARTS.

  2. Love the excerpt for A Vision of Fire. This one is on my TBR . I hope you're enjoying it!

  3. Oh, my, I think this book (A Vision of Fire) would scare me so...but I wouldn't be able to stop turning those pages! Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE TWILIGHT HOUR”

  4. Both books sound intriguing based on each 56!
    Happy weekend!
