Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.
This is a really fun meme!
The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.
Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!
My 56 for this week is from
Jill Kismet #1
by Lilith Saintcrow
Genre: Urban Fantasy
My 56 from the paperback.
The water was knee-high and I splashed through…it’d been a hell of a fall.
Smells like something’s dead down here. Lovely.
I hate this sort of thing. The sludge started getting deeper, and the tunnel slanted downhill. I really hate this sort of thing.
Read on if you want to know more.
I picked this up at my local used book store. The cover grabbed me right away. And the blurb sold me.
Kick butt female protagonist. Creatures of all shapes and sizes to be slain. Count me in.
I had a blast. Jill is very genuine, flaws and all. And the way she faces and takes down the evil beings keeps you on edge, flipping pages, cheering her on. From the mean streets to the sewers below, she hunts.
As for those creatures, you’ll encounter some really bad ones. I’m all about the nastier the better and there were some great ones in these pages.
The writing is fast paced and reads easily, and there are some interesting characters, good and bad. Plus a bit of romance. Nothing to cast a shadow over the action, just enough to make you smile.
For fans of Urban Fantasy, you’ll get what you’re looking for in this book. I’ll be following the series, anticipating more intense action and scary good creatures for Jill to take down.
Jill Kismet. Dealer in Dark Things. Spiritual Exterminator. Demon Slayer.
Not everyone can take on the things that go bump in the night.
Not everyone tries.
But Jill Kismet is not just anyone.
She’s a Hunter, trained by the best – and in over her head.
Welcome to the night shift…
Leave your link and I’ll drop by your 56.
Until the next time….
