Please share the first line on the book you are currently reading so that those first few words intrigue others to read it!

Please DO NOT post first lines of ARCs as they are advance copies and aren't publised.
To maintain the uniformity of the thread, post only the first line (post till you reach the first fullstop) and post the link to the book and not the book cover.
Finally, please do not spam, again to maintain the uniformity! :)
