Hold the Light
“Unremarkable. Amber glanced out the streaming windowpane at the cityscape below her. The rain washed all the color from the sky, trees, and buildings, covering the world in grayscale brushstrokes. She traced a raindrop with her finger as she’d done as a child, watching it gather speed, collecting friends as it went, only to splat useless on the sill, pool, and drizzle away.”
I know it’s a little more than the first line, but I absolutely LOVE April McGowan’s attention to detail. McGowan is FANTASTIC writer, and this novel is amazing!!! If you have not heard of April McGowan before, click here for her Goodreads author page.
