First Lines Fridays: Feb 23, 2018

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

In the world of Senia, lawlessness consumes much of the planet, save for few city-states. Two of the most powerful, White Heart and Avalon, prepare for war with each other. In light of this approaching threat, a White Heart general, Amber Leavett, is green-lighted to form a special-ops unit, comprised of the best of the best, dedicated to protecting the innocent in a time of darkness. An ambitious general, a gunslinging tactician, an attack dog, a savage berserker, a cyborg raven, a sensual vigilante, a civil-rights leader, a ghastly thanatologist, and an orphan cryomancer, are all united because of their common enemies, and they become the indomitable Guardians. By overcoming the battles they face, they make a name for themselves as heroes of legend.

Drawing a cast of other vivid characters and factions into the fray, Our Guardian Renegade brims with unique and fascinating stories of intertwined fates, and it delves deep into themes of society, race, gender, and sexuality. It is a fast-paced, cinematically driven read, in which every character is involved in the conflicts taking place in the world of Senia.
