First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 37 | No Less Days by Amanda G Stevens

It’s First Line Friday, which means it’s time to open the book nearest you and share the first line. Today I’m sharing the first line from No Less Days by Amanda G Stevens, a speculative Christian novel that’s somewhere between Fringe and Forever. Here’s the first line:

First line from No Less Days by Amanda G Stevens: His books were burning.  He let the glass door slam behind him and charged into the shop.

I can relate to a character who worries his books might be burning. What about you?

About No Less Days

David Galloway can’t die.

How many lifetimes can God expect one man to live? Over a century old, David Galloway isolates himself from the mortal humans who die or desert him by making a quiet life as a used bookstore owner in Northern Michigan. But then he spots a news article about a man who, like him, should be dead.

Daredevil celebrity Zachary Wilson walked away unscathed from what should have been a deadly fall. David tracks the man down, needing answers. Soon David discovers a close-knit group of individuals as old as he is who offer the sort of kinship and community he hasn’t experienced for decades—but at what cost?

David finds himself keeping secrets other than his own. . .protecting more than himself alone. He’ll have to decide what’s worth the most to him—security or community. When crimes come to light that are older than any mortal, he fears the pressure is more than he can stand. What does God require of him, and is David strong enough to see it through?

  1. Um. Wow. That book sounds super intriguing. The first line did its job and the book description only increased my curiosity. I love the premise of the book. Did you say that you’d finished it? I’m so curious now!

    First line:
    “I am not sure I will live long enough to finish this account.” – The Man with Two Names by Vincent B. Davis II

    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 30.

    “Henry winced as he gripped the newel post and pivoted from the stair’s landing to the next flight of stairs.” — The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd (first line from chapter 30)

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It’s the book closest to me right now because I’m currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean.”

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    My FLF is from one of my favorites by Terri Blackstock called Covenant Child.
    “There’s a question that haunts me in the blackest hours of night, when wasted moments crowd my dreams and mock the life I know. The question is this: How could a child born of privilege and promise grow up with nothing?”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring Jen Turano’s book, A Match of Wits. Here I will share the first line on page 113 of a book I’m currently reading, The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. “Marriage in Heaven will be on a much higher plane because the church will be united with Christ.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

    I am so looking forward to reading this book as soon as I wrap up my April commitments!

    I’m reading Julie by Catherine Marshall right now. The first line is: “Our 1928 Willys-Knight had been climbing for at least ten miles, one hairpin turn after another, under a threatening sky.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Well it would be a drama!!! Burning books…
    Happy Friday!
    “Stop interrogating me. I’m not going to say anything different,” a panic-stricken voice shrieked after begging for the third time to leave for the hospital. “There was so much blood.”

    These lines come from Father Figure by James J Cudney. A suspense and family drama with an intricate plot like none other!
