Friday Memes: The Hunt by Chloe Neill

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
It had once been a lovely kitchen, with pale wood and granite, a pretty view of a courtyard garden, and an enormous refrigerator still dotted with photographs of what looked like a big, happy family. Father, mother, daughter, sons, and an enormous black dog, big enough for the kids to ride on.

But they were long gone now, cleared out like nearly everyone else in New Orleans when Paranormals flooded our world, leaving most of our city and much of the South in ruins.
Friday 56:
"But even if you had to leave to deal with it to ensure you had control, that was weeks ago, Liam. You couldn't send a message? You couldn't take five minutes to let us know where you were, how you were?
This week I am reading The Hunt by Chloe Neill. I got this eARC from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
When bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered that Claire Connolly was a Sensitive and infected with magic, he should have turned her in to be locked up in the prison district known as Devil’s Isle. Instead, he helped her learn to control her power and introduced her to an underground group of Paranormals and humans who know the truth about the war and those who fought it.

Now the weight of Liam’s own secrets has forced him into hiding. When a government agent is killed and Claire discovers that Liam is the prime suspect, she races to find him before the government can. But she’ll discover proving his innocence is no simple matter. Their enemies are drawing closer, and time is running out....

  4. As I read the opening, I wondered what had destroyed the kitchen. Maybe a hurricane? The fact that it was "paranormals" intrigues me. I'd keep reading to find out what happened.
    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog post.

  5. Hi Kathy,

    Whilst this probably isn't a book for my own TBR list, I can really relate to Lorraine's comments about the opening lines making her feel sad.

    The way the kitchen in this house is described, sounds very much like my mum and dad's place does, now that they have both passed away and their house has been emptied of all the personal touches and placed up for sale.

    The end of an era, very much like your humans having been hounded out!

    Thanks for sharing and 'Happy Reading' :)
