First Chapter First Paragraph: King's Cage

First Chapter, First Paragraph is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea, where we share the first paragraph of a book we're currently reading or want to read soon.  My selection this week comes from King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard.

"I rise to my feet when he lets me.

The chain jerks me up, pulling on the thorned collar at my throat.  Its points dig in, not enough to draw blood- not yet.  But I'm already bleeding from the wrists.  Slow wounds, worn from days of unconscious captivity in rough, ripping manacles.  The color stains my white sleeves dark crimson and bright scarlet, fading from old blood to new in a testament of my ordeal.  To show Maven's court how much I've suffered already."

Based on this intro, would you read this book?  Watch for my review of King's Cage on Saturday!

Happy Reading!


  1. Humm, is this part of series? I'll have to check into it. I'm not sold on this opener, but I'm curious enough to check out the author and books.

  2. Wow. That's pretty intense and visual. Reminds me of Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi (with more blood). I might not finish this one. LOL

  3. Not my style, but I hope you enjoy it.
