Ames tagged me with a meme. This is a fun and easy one.
Here are the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the closest. Tag five other people to do the same.
Here was the closest book to me:
His face was bleak and I had to resist the urge to reach out to him once more. As he'd said, when we touched, bad things happened. I did not want to see again that flash of fang ; I didn't want to catch a whiff of blood.
I tag whoever else wants to participate who has not been tagged yet.
And the book happened to be this one:
Elizabeth Phoenix once used her unique skills as a psychic to help in the Milwaukee Police Department’s fight against injustice. But when Liz’s foster mother is found viciously murdered—and Liz is discovered unconscious at the scene—her only memory of the crime comes in the form of terrifying dreams...of creatures more horrific than anything Liz has seen in real life. What do these visions mean? And what in the world do they have to do with her former lover, Jimmy Sanducci?
While the police question Jimmy in the murder, Jimmy opens Liz’s eyes to a supernatural war that has raged since the dawn of time in which innocent people are hunted by malevolent beings disguised as humans. Only a chosen few have the ability to fight their evil, and Jimmy believes Liz is among them. Now, with her senses heightened, new feelings are rising within Liz—ones that re-ignite her dangerous attraction to Jimmy. But Jimmy has a secret that will rock Liz to her core…and put the survival of the human race in peril.
I got this as an ARC from LibraryThing. I am not positive how I feel about it. I really liked most of it. The characters were interesting and I was enjoying the storyline. Until I got to a part toward the end that had a forced seduction scene and I was not too thrilled about that. I have never been crazy about those, too close to rape. He was not in his right mind but still too close for me. This book is definitely not for everyone. It is the beginning of a series and there is no definite HEA yet. She sleeps with someone other than the hero which I know a lot of people who do not like that. Of course, I am not positive who her hero is going to be. I am curious where she is going to go with the storyline.
Besides the sex I was very interested in the storyline. I know that is so backwards for me, go figure. Because of this I am not too sure how to grade this one. Labels: misc, paranormal, psychic, shape-shifter, vampires
