The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
This week’s quote is from The Girl King, by Mimi Yu, one of the books I’m reading for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge.
When she looked up, the woman’s face was a chasm of writing light and fire, horrible to behold.
Cold fear seized her, but the sensation quickened into an unbearable heat. The woman’s robes turned to living flames, scorching Min’s arms and neck and setting her hair ablaze. She opened her mouth to cry out and the stranger bent over her, sucking the scream out of her with a cruel, searing kiss –
Min awoke with a start violent enough to chase the nightmare away.
The quote you’ve picked is really dramatic! I hope you’re enjoying The Girl King.
My Friday memes this week.
