First Line Friday is a meme created by Hoarding Books. Feel free to head over there, have a look around, grab your nearest book and post its first line in the comments there and in your blog.
I started reading Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell this week. I am a quarter into it now. Quick summary of what it feels like so far: m/m romance in an SF setting, marriage of convenience, potentially a murder mystery and court intrigue, hints of space opera. It‘s also one of my overdue NetGalleys.
Ancillary Justice meets Red, White & Royal Blue in Everina Maxwell’s exciting debut.from the book blurb
Both of those are excellent books. I recommend the audioversion of Ancillary Justice. Adjoa Andoh does an excellent job. She seems to be Leckie‘s standard audiobook narrator. I also listened to her narration of The Raven Tower — or was that Provenance? — not sure which right now. And she plays a role in Bridgerton — one more reason to finally check that out.
Anyway, I am rambling, back to First Line Friday…

As first lines go, that is a pretty good one! I also like the cover.
I received this free e-copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
