First Line Friday No. 8

Welcome Back!

I thought we'd take a peek into one of the books I'm dying to read (see post below).  Ready?

They called the world beyond the walls of the Pod, "the Death Shop."  A million ways to die out there.  Aria never thought she'd get so close.  

She bit her lip as she stared at the heavy steel door in front of her.  A display screen read AGRICULTURE 6 -- NO ENTRY in flashing red letters.

Ag 6 was just a service dome, Aria told herself.  Dozens of domes supplied Reverie with food, water, oxygen -- all the things an enclosed city needed.  Ag 6 had been damaged in a recent storm, but supposedly the damage was minor.


--from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Reasons to read:

1. "The Death Shop" -- brilliant name.

2.  We are instantly drawn in when we realize someone is getting close to the world beyond -- will she die?  Will she survive?  How?  Why IS she so close?

3.  I want to know more about this world -- the Pods, Reverie (the city -- another great name), the outside...

4.  Aria -- another great name!  I am loving the word choices here.

5.  Supposedly...!!!  What does this mean for our intrepid heroine?

The beginning of this book is suspenseful -- it plunges you right into the world and hints at the mystery surrounding Reverie.

I am intrigued.

Are you?
