Opening Sentence of the Day: The Devil's Elixir



Alvaro de Padilla was overcome by dread as his visions dissipated and focus returned to his tired eyes.

-- The Devil's Elixir by Raymond Khoury. This is a real rip-roarer. Pure fun. It opens in 1741 in what is now Mexico.

This is the latest in Khoury's Templar series, featuring FBI agent Sean Reilly and his archaeologist girlfriend Tess Chaykin. I haven't read the others, but this one stands alone just fine.



A Few More Pages hosts Book Beginnings every Friday.  The event is open for the entire week.
