Book Hooks is a weekly blog hop where authors share 8-10 sentence hooks from one of their books with readers, and readers get the chance to sample some great books!
Here's a little hook for you from The Book of Life...
“Stop complaining,” admonished Andrew, but the concerned look in his eyes as he bent down softened his gruff tone. He pressed his hand to Luc’s chest to slow the bleeding, and yelled into the darkness, “Bring me a medical bag!” Lifting his hand for a moment, he examined the wound. “It’s deep.”
Luc clenched his teeth together. “You don’t say.”
“I think she nicked bone,” Andrew added, apparently impressed.
“Admirable. Just another female going for the heart you claim I don’t have?”
“You whine like a mortal. Be thankful you’re not or you would be dead by now.”
Ljluka Vargas, immortal prince and the cool-headed enforcer for the Vargas Dynasty, must go up against his most intriguing enemy, the mysterious Nalini. She intends to beat him to the secret archaeological site of The Book of Life which contains the genetic secrets of their ancient ancestors.
In order to escape the cruel domination of her family and gain freedom for her mother, Nalini assumes the role of assassin. In her rival, the sleek and deadly Luc, she finds a different kind of danger. She’s supposed to eliminate him, but that would foil destiny’s plan for them to be together.
It’s a race from power-hungry D.C. cabinet rooms through the secret realms of the Vatican, from cloud forests and desert sands to the caverns of the Underworld as mankind hangs in the balance. For whoever possesses the Book of Life has the potential to rule the world, offering or denying immortality to the human race.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
