First lines of a book are meant to capture the reader's attention, give a clue to the story or set the stage for the entire novel. 

When we play this game, let's use the first FIVE lines of any chapter. 
It can be from you own work (published or WIP) or a favorite book.

Feel free to post first lines from your favorite book in the comments following this post.


The blades of the chopper sliced through the heat of the night as it flew over the City of Lights. Casinos glowed in various hues of blue, plum, gold, green, and silver, casting a magical aura. Spotlights danced in the night, graceful fingers tickling the sinister side of Vegas. Unsuspecting people moved about, flitting from place to place, searching for excitement and fulfillment while cars in traffic jams occasionally brought the pulsing arteries in the heart of the city to a temporary halt.

Being a Las Vegas cop, Steph recognized the evil lurking in the shadows of the beautiful city, also known as Sin City.       - taken from Handcuffs & Silk
