Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 - December 30, 2016

I'm linking up with Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings and Freda's Voice for Page 56. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Pick the closest book on your book stack and join the fun.

The Beginning:

"The Dogs' Teeth Pub was an ugly atrocity of lumber and plaster wedged in the empty space between the row houses at the intersection of Cole and Hester."

Page 56:

"This is what I recorded on the night of the Winged Convergence. The sheet was covered in crazy, jagged squiggles, filled with spikes and jabs."

From The Alchemy of Chaos by Marshall Ryan Maresca. This is book two in a series set in the city of Maradaine. Maresca is writing two series set in this city. This one set at the university and another that features local law enforcement officers.


  1. The excerpts piqued my curiosity...the book sounds tempting. Enjoy! Here's mine: “THE MISSING”
