The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE
Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.
Beginnings: "The history of the world begins in ice, and it will end in ice."
56: "The stream of words made her frown, but my statement was so unexceptional she could not protest."
Comments: Honestly, I haven't read any books that I can quote from for The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings. Instead, I decided to share a few quotes from one of my favorite books: Cold Magic by Kate Elliott. Cold Magic is the book that introduced me to Elliott's writing, and since then it has remained one of my favorite fantasy novels. Period. End of discussion. The opening sentence is also quite memorable.
