First Lines Friday: August 20

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?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • 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!


If she were a litigious sort of person, Dani was reasonably certain she could’ve had her best friend charged with attempted murder.

Two sisters. Divided they burn.

Two sisters raised to be fierce dragon slayers end up on opposing sides of an impending war when one forms an unlikely, magical bond with a dragon, in this exciting, fresh contemporary young adult fantasy.

Dani and Eden Rivera were both born to kill dragons, but the sisters couldn’t be more different. For Dani, dragon slaying takes a back seat to normal high school life, while Eden prioritizes training above everything else. Yet they both agree on one thing: it’s kill or be killed where dragons are concerned.

Until Dani comes face-to-face with one and forges a rare and magical bond with him. As she gets to know Nox, she realizes that everything she thought she knew about dragons is wrong. With Dani lost to the dragons, Eden turns to the mysterious and alluring sorcerers to help save her sister. Now on opposite sides of the conflict, the sisters will do whatever it takes to save the other. But the two are playing with magic that is more dangerous than they know, and there is another, more powerful enemy waiting for them both in the shadows. 

Fire with Fire sounds amazing and it starts with an intriguing first line. And DRAGONS! Need I say more?

Have you read it? Is it on your TBR? Share it with me in the comments.

  1. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this book before but over the past few days I’ve been seeing it EVERYWHERE and I’m liking the sound of these first lines so I’m taking that as a sign I should get it? 😂 Sounds (and looks) so good!
