Book Beginnings & Friday 56 - #10

Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

My Book Beginning:  

Unbinding (World of the Lupi, Book 11) by Eileen Wilks


Aleri in Winter

Kai hadn’t had a cup of coffee in eighteen months. 
That’s what she was thinking about when the Queen of Winter’s emissary came to see her – about coffee and her favorite mug.

My Thoughts:  To be completely honest, this would be a huge, huge problem for me.  I have at least 1 if not more (usually more) cup of coffee a day.  I can’t imagine going that long without it…

What do you think?  Don't forget to leave your book beginning below and to link-up at Rose City Reader.  


Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice on every Friday.

To Play along here are the Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your post below. 
*Don’t forget to add your post URL (not your blog url) at Freda’s Voice.  
*It's that simple.

My 56 (Also from Unbinding by Eileen Wilks ): 

     “I’m the closest thing you’ve got to an expert on sidhe magic and religion – specifically, one pissed-off chaos god.  I’m also a mindhealer,” she added to the assistant chief.  “My gift lets me see the colors and patterns of thoughts, which is why I need to look over the transformed building carefully.  Intent is a component in spells, and it often leaves traces – remnants – I’m able to see.”

My Thoughts:  I’d let her do her job without bothering her – he’s clearly pushing her buttons the wrong way!

About Unbinding by Eileen Wilks

After questing through the sidhe realms with her ex-hellhound lover, Nathan, Kai Tallman Michalski has finally returned home. But she knows Nathan will eventually be called back to serve his queen—and Kai will have to decide whether to enter her majesty’s service as well. Sure, the job comes with great bennies, but there’s one big downside: she would have to swear absolute fealty to the Queen of Winter.

For now, though, Kai is glad to be home, and glad that Nathan completed his mission for his queen with surprising ease. But what seemed to be a quick conclusion turns out to be anything but. The two of them helped thwart the sidhe god of chaos—and he is not happy about that. He’s got plans for them. Plans, too, for the sidhe who killed him some three millennia ago. Nor has he abandoned his plans for Earth, as they learn when chaos begins bursting out all over...

Don't forget to post your meme's and link up at both host locations.  

Have a great Friday! 



  1. I haven't heard of this book before, but I like the sound of the synopsis.

  2. No coffee in 18 months?!? And she's still functioning?!? Yep ... definitely a fantasy novel ;)

  3. I'm still hung up on her being without coffee for 18 months! Yikes....I think I would seriously implode without at least two cups right away after awakening...LOL. Enjoy, and thanks for sharing. I want to know if she gets coffee again....

    Here's mine: “THE BLACK WIDOW”

  4. This sounds like a cool series. I'll have to look it up.

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginning).

  5. I really like this series. I wouldn't miss coffee since I really dislike it but no Diet Pepsi would be a deal breaker for me. I am spotlighting Play by Kylie Scott this week. Happy reading!

  6. Although this isn't a genre I generally read, that opening sentence is definitely a winner. It makes me wonder why she hasn't had coffee in so long and whether or not she'll get some caffeine.
    My Friday post features The Mirror.

  7. I definitely want to check out this series since it seems like it has something to do with mythology and I love anything that deals with mythology! haha great post! My Friday post Half-Blood

  8. Happy Reading!!

    I don't read this genre, but I hope you are enjoying the book.
