Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! The book I’m featuring for you today is next up on my TBR list. The main object is to grab the book nearest you and share the first line.
I began following Jennifer Macaire’s blog recently and her series The Time For Alexander looked really interesting. I checked on Amazon and was able to pick up the first book for $0.99. Today I am sharing the first line from that book.
“There are several tombs purported to be of Alexander the Great. Only I know the real one.”
About the Book: After winning a prestigious award, Ashley is chosen to travel through time and interview a historical figure. Choosing her childhood hero Alexander the Great, she is sent back in time for less than a day. He mistakes her for Persephone, goddess of the dead, and kidnaps her, stranding her in his own time. What follows, after she awakes under the pomegranate tree, is a hilarious, mind-bending tale of a modern woman immersed in the ancient throes of sex, love, quite a bit of vino, war, death and ever so much more.
I am about 20% in and am enjoying it so far. It is very different from what I normally read, but that’s okay. I need to move out of my comfort zone.
