Friday Firsts: The Black Wolves of Boston by Wen Spencer
Friday Firsts is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others. Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader. This week I’m reading The Black Wolves of Boston by Wen Spencer.
Joshua really thought it would be easier to catch a rabbit; he was a werewolf, after all. The stupid things, though could turn on a dime and kept zigging when his body kept zagging.
And then there were the trees.
He hit, yet another oak tree, this one only about four inches wide, but enough to knock him down and nearly knock him out when he hit it. Acorns rained down on him. It felt like the oak tree was laughing at him.
“Stupid tree.” He kicked it while still lying flat on his back.
There was a loud crack and it toppled slowly away from him.
Joshua groaned and slapped his hands over his eyes. He was doing this at night so no one would see him or know what he’d done. People might not notice if half the trees in the Back Bay Fens Park had face impressions but they weren’t going to miss a downed tree.
My First Impressions
Well, I think those first few sentences clearly give the impression that Joshua is a new wolf and isn’t coping well at coming to grips with everything. I think it also manages to inject some levity into the book and give the impression that though this could be serious in parts it will also be tempered with humour. I’m really enjoying this so far to be honest. There’s plenty going on and the urban fantasy elements are really good.
What you reading this Friday??
