Friday Memes: Kris Longknife Boot Recruit & Kris Longknife's Maid Goes on Strike by Mike Shepherd

 Happy Friday!

Book Beginnings is hosted by Gillion at Rose City Reader. She asks that the first sentence is posted along with the author and title of the book and the reader's initial thoughts on the sentence, the book, or anything else it inspires. 
Carrie at Reading Is My also provides a linky for sharing first lines and connecting with others. This meme asks that the chosen books be PG or marked as Mature if they are not. 

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice. This meme is currently on hiatus but many of us are still including a sentence from page 56 or from 56% of the ebook. Anne @ Head Full of Books is picking up the slack until Freda is ready to return. I think this link will get you to the correct place

With an unwanted nudge from behind, Kris Longknife took the last step up. There were only five people ahead of her before it would be her turn to cross the stage to where the President of the University of Wardhaven handed out diplomas. 
Friday 56:
Kris could help but giggle. The sight of a gun truck with a huge Christmas tree tied to its top had to be one of the strangest sights of the holidays.
This week I am spotlighting two different books in the Kris Longknife series by Mike Shepherd. Kris Longknife Boot Recruit is a novella that tells how Kris comes to join the Navy and Kris Longknife's Maid Goes on Strike contains four vignettes from the series. Here are the descriptions from Amazon:
Kris Longknife's Maid Goes on Strike - This collection of 4 short stories under one cover: Maid Goes on Strike, Ruthie Longknife's First Christmas, Among the Kicking Birds and Bad Day.
Kris Longknife Boot Recruit - Everyone has known since Kris Longknife: Mutineer that Kris ran off to join the Navy after graduating college much to her parents’ dismay. However, the story has never been told of how that came to pass. Worse, how does a scion of the Longknife clan survive that massive drop in social levels, plummeting from the prime minister’s brat to a lowly boot recruit. Here, at last, is the story in all its fuss and feathers still on this rare bird. Enjoy.
