The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join in every Friday, the rules are simple.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
**Also be sure to leave me a link to your Friday 56 post in the comments!**

White-bellied fish swam in the darkness of the still pool above, and when I lowered my line into the water, the faint moonlight seemed to draw them to the hook.’

Juliet Marillier is one of the most gifted writers I’ve ever come across. Her stories are always magical and her writing something to behold. This is an excerpt from her book Shadowfell.
