First Line Fridays: Choice of the Mighty by Kenyon T. Henry


Hello and good morning!

Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted byย Hoarding Books!

How are all of you doing on this wonderful Friday morning? Fridays are my favorite day of the week because I get to read all of your first lines!

Today just hasn’t my day guys. I totally forgot to have this up and ready for today. So of course I hurried and tried to get this post up, but it just wasn’t happening. Interruptions just kept happening. One of those interruptions being that my laptop decided it was time to run updates.

Anyways, now that there aren’t any interruptions, here is today’s post.

Today’s first line comes from a must-read Christian YA fantasy novel. If you enjoy Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, then I’d recommend this for you.

The book I’m featuring today is:

Choice of the Mighty by Kenyon T. Henry

Choice of the Mighty

This is one of those books that deals with secret societies and has kind of a spiritual warfare theme. We have two secret societies, The Mighty vs. Fallen. The Mighty is based on King David’s Mighty Men of Valor and the Fallen is based on the fallen angels. It’s a neat concept that I personally think was well done. So if you like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or anything superhero-ish, then this would probably be one for you. You can learn more by checking out my review HERE.

And the first line is:

He walked alone down the sidewalk. With each step the man took, freshly scattered salt crunched between boot and the concrete.

Come back next week to check out the first line from the sequel, “Trails of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry.

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating! Join us too!

  1. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Melanie Dickerson’s novel, The Orphan’s Wish. I just started it and I’m loving it so much!

    Here, I will share the first line from chapter 8 (that’s where I’m at currently).

    “Aladdin followed Herr Kaufmann around for the first week.”

    Hope you have a great weekend full of fun reading!!! โค๐Ÿ“š

    • I can’t wait to read this! I love Melanie Dickerson’s fairy-tale retellings and I’m beyond curious to see what she does with Aladdin. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great week!!


  2. Happy Friday!๐Ÿ˜

    My First Line Fridays comes from a book Iโ€™m planning on reading very soon, Shelter In Place by Nora Roberts.

    On Friday, July 22, 2005, Simone Knox ordered a large Fanta โ€“ orange โ€“ to go with her popcorn and Swedish Fish. The choice, her standard night at the movies fare, changed her life, and very likely saved it. Still, sheโ€™d never drink Fanta again.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š

  3. Happy Friday! The book I’m featuring on my blog is “My Sister’s Intended” by Rachael Anderson. It’s been on my TBR list for quite some time now, but I finally read it and am so glad I did. Truly an enjoyable read. I will share the first line from Chapter Eleven here. “”Would you care to go for a stroll with me in the gardens, Miss Gifford?” Brand asked, not sure whether or not he wanted her to accept.”

    Hmm, curious start.

    Iโ€™m reading The Dear Reader by Mary O’Connell right now, so hereโ€™s the first line: โ€œMiss Sweeney disappeared on the first day of March, an icy Thursday morning of gloves and boots and veneers of diamondy frost on the windows of Sacred Heart High School.โ€

    • I just looked this book up and it said a mixture of Gilmore Girls and Wuthering Heights. Guess I’m going to need to check this out. Thanks for sharing Hallie!


  5. I hope your day gets better! That sounds like a great book. I like the first line. Today, I’m sharing the first line from a book recommended by my daughter: Matched by Ally Condie. “Now that Iโ€™ve found the way to fly, which direction should I go into the night?” I don’t think I’m going to read that one, but she sure liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy reading.

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from La Risposta: The Answer (A Tuscan Legacy book 9) by Autumn Macarthur:

    The book I shared on my blog this week is Her Place in Time by Stephenia H McGee but my next book is going to be The Baker’s secret by Stephen P Kiernan so I’ll share that first line here: “All through those years of war, the bread tasted of humiliation.” Hope you have happy weekend with plenty of reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I guess I’m going to need to read this to see why the bread tasted of humiliation. Haha.

      Thanks for stopping by Becca! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of reading time as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. I’m sharing from a book that will be out early next month (I won an uncorrected proof on GoodReads) on my blog today, The Daisy Children by Sofia Grant, so here is the second line:

    “It wasn’t the fault of the trousers, of course, but it was tempting to blame them nonetheless.”

    Happy Reading!
