First Lines Friday – January 17, 2020

First Lines Friday

This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

Here are my first lines:

My knees buckled and my hands trembled as I reached for the door to the school. An invisible weight came crushing down on my lungs as I gasped for air.

Off to a great start…

And the book is… Fire in Frost by Alicia Rades.

Fire in Frost

Buy the book


“There’s a fire growing inside of me. It’s not the harmful kind that can kill a girl like Olivia. It’s the kind that can save her.”

Crystal Frost tells herself she isn’t crazy, but sane people don’t see ghosts. As her psychic abilities manifest, Crystal discovers she can see into the future, witness the past, and speak with the dead. Add blackmail to the list of things she never thought would happen to her, and you basically have her sophomore year covered. After spotting her first ghost, secrets from her family, friends, and classmates begin to surface. Uncovering secrets can be dangerous, but giving up means someone will get hurt. Again.

Fire in Frost is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree and was named one of the top 50 indie books of 2015 by In addition to earning 5 stars from Readers’ Favorite, it was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Readers’ Favorite 2016 International Book Award Contest in the YA Paranormal category.

First of all, what a beautiful cover!  Secondly, who doesn’t love an award winning paranormal young adult fiction novel?  So far there are four books in the series and I hope to get started soon.

Happy reading!
