Not much news from me: except my new Blog theme. Do you like it? I think it looks like a Wordpress theme, but I could not get the dropdown list to work, which is disappointing. It still needs some tweaking but I do like it, since I'm not likely to get a self-hosted Wordpress.org theme anytime soon.
There are some books I've had on there for 3 years and more, so its really about time I got around to reading them. So the book I am featuring today is a YA Fantasy novel I got as a freebie in 2015.
With King Harold away at war Lord Raburn has his eye on the throne. Those who dare to stand in his way fall beneath his power. All but one. A girl named Annabeth. Can a common, ordinary girl, with love for king, country, and her father, achieve the impossible?
Trained by her father, a master swordsman, outlawed Annabeth has only her sword, her wits, and her disguises to keep Belterra from falling entirely into Lord Raburn's clutches. Can she rescue her captured father and Prince Alfred? Will one girl keep the kingdom from falling?
Of course, even though this book is not historical and not based on real events or persons, I do love the names Harold and Alfred. Good Anglo-Scandinavian names.
The first line from the Prologue reads:
Annabeth took a deep breath looking up at the five tall boys before her. Curling her fingers, she rubbed them against her palms, wishing she held a sword in her hand.
So that's my First Line from this week, from of the the three older books I actually have downloaded on my Kindle at the moment.
