First Lines...

"The city's streets lie dark as catacombs beneath a black ceiling of moonless sky. A low fog unrolls across the harbor like a carpet of frost, pushed by a salt-laden breeze. My thin cotton gown is little protection against the chill, but no matter. The cold can no longer make me cough or shiver..."
...The Raven's Bride by Lenore Hart, coming Feb. 15th!

Hi Audra!
When I read the first few pages of this ARC I fell in love with it! What a first line, huh?! Talk about atmospheric! Thanks for stopping by!

I've been anxious to read this one for some time now. I hope it's as good as the advance reviews have said it is.

I'm a "fan" of Virginia Poe and would like to see her get her due.
