First Line Fridays #6

“You’re a new one.”

The ‘new one’ – a boy of fifteen – paused inside the courtyard, mentally translating the words. 

“Yes, I am,” Vidanric Reselaeus said carefully in the language he’d been studying so hard since winter. 

The Remalnan boy and the Marloven men regarded on another. […]

To the Marloven the newcomer was obviously a foreigner.  […] You heard about people wearing lace, but this was the first time he’d actually seen it.

  1. This has been sitting on my shelf for AGES and I have not read it yet. I read Court Duel and Crown Duel.

    • I love this book! But I will admit it is a bit different then Crown Duel and Court Duel owing to the fact Sherwood Smith wrote those when she was younger and this when later on when she had developed as a writer and expanded her world. I do hope you read it soon and enjoy it!
