Book Beginnings of Friday (10)

Book Beginnings on Friday at Rose City Reader is the place to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the book.

I've been slacking on this one a bit.  I apologize - I love reading the beginnings of books I've never heard of.  The writing in the first few sentences can help me decide if I'll like the author's style or not.  This week I chose a Young/New Adult Paranormal that I started earlier this week: Heaven and Hellsbane (A Hellsbane Novel) by Paige Cuccaro.   It's book two in the Hellsbane series - so far it's quite good.

"Maion's gone.  Dead." It looked like Eli had popped out of thin air into the extra chair at our table.

He hadn't really.  He'd simply moved at angelic speed, faster than any human could track.  Same difference.

Book Blurb: 
Emma Jane Hellsbane just unwittingly triggered a whole bunch of nephilim to come into their powers—and this new army has teamed up with Bariel, demon straight from Hell, who’s made it his mission to kill all the magisters on Earth. When they come after Eli, Emma and Officer Dan must work together to save him, but this makes Eli all the more tempted to Fall for Emma. And his fighting his feelings for her means Heaven has taken notice.

Now Emma isn’t just fighting off demons, rogue nephilim and Fallen angels, she’s defending her womanhood to the judgmental Seraphim angels, too, who want to separate Eli from Emma Jane. Can she protect Eli, Officer Dan, and find her rogue father? For Emma Jane, it’s all in a day’s work as Heaven’s ultimate bounty hunter.
