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 Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin, an enemies-to-lovers young adult fantasy romance about a witch and a witch hunter.

“Lou!” Bas grabbed my shoulders and shook me slightly. “Can you get us out?”
Tears welled in my eyes. “No,” I breathed. “I can’t.”
