#BookBeginnings & The #Friday56

It's another Friday with The Friday 56 and this time adding Book Beginnings (also found at Freda's Voice & hosted by Rose City Reader)! I was tempted to use the book I just started, but opted to go with the one I just finished instead. The more chances I get to have people exposed to this wonderful series the better! (Not that the other series isn't wonderful, too, of course. Maybe some other Friday I'll use it instead of whatever ARC I might be reading at the time since, you know, I hate quoting ARCs.)

So, without further ado, the Book Beginning from John Connolly's The Infernals:

The place generally referred to as Hell but also known variously as Hades, the Kingdom of Fire, Old Nick's Place, and other assorted names designed to indicate that this is not somewhere in which you might want to spend an eternity, let along a short vacation, was in a state of turmoil. Its ruler, its dark king, was unwell, and by "unwell" I mean mad as a parade of March hares.
Having already read the first book in the series I pretty much knew what was going on & it was nice to see the havoc being wreaked!

Fast forward to the The Friday 56:

Okay, I think technically it was the 57% mark. You can flog me later ... after, you know, you catch up on at least the first two books of the trilogy yourself. Then you'll be too grateful to flog me for being off by a percent. 


  1. Not a series I'd heard off, but one to check out. Thanks for sharing

    Please take a peek at mine http://www.thereadinghead.com/friday-56-meets-book-beginnings-4/

  2. I haven't heard of this series. It sounds interesting. You can find me at #23 and #24 on Freda's linky. Happy reading!

  3. I was just looking at this a few days ago - it sounds like it could be awesome!

    Check out my 56 (With Book Beginnings).

  4. Never heard of this one, but it sounds interesting and possibly a little funny.

    here's my Friday quotes

  5. Wow, I had to read this twice. Lots of great ideas here. I kept imagining the "Old Nick's" local pub at my college :) not quite the same as described here!

  6. It's killing me that I haven't read this yet. LOL I love his books and have been reading him for years.
