For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Oh look, a fun new feature! This one is so so interesting, I've been lurking around it for a while now and I'm finally jumping in. Here goes.
They say only the good die young. At least, that's what they used to say about Isabella Fernandez.
This book is the second in a series, so I already know what I'm getting into and I'm familiar with what's happened before, so this sentence just brings back all of the events of the previous book and I had to sit and consider it all again before I could properly get reading.
I'm about half way through now and loving it, it's filled with mystery and suspense and there's a hint of romance and scandal. Perfection.
