First Line Fridays: Synapse by Steven James

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today, I'm sharing the first line from Synapse by Steven James:

"You do not hear your baby cry.."

Have you read this book? I browsed the first chapter and it made me pretty sad, so I haven't picked it back up.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!


About the Book:

Thirty years in the future, when AI is so advanced that humans live side by side with cognizant robots called Artificials, Kestrel Hathaway must come to terms not just with what machines knowbut with what they believe.

Soon after experiencing a personal tragedy, Kestrel witnesses a terrorist attack and is drawn into a world of conspiracies and lies that she and Jordan, her Artificial, have to untangle. With a second, more brutal attack looming on the horizon, their best chance of stopping it is teaming up with federal counter-terrorism agent Nick Vernon. But the clock is ticking—and all the while, Jordan is asking questions Artificials were never meant to ask.

Deftly weaving suspense and intrigue into a rich, resonant tale that explores faith and what it really means to be human, Steven James offers us a glimpse into the future—and into our own hearts. Synapse is an unforgettable, gripping story of dreams shattered, truth revealed, and hope reborn.

  1. Today, I'm sharing from Love You, Truly by Susan L. Tuttle: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/12/19/first-line-friday-115/. It's such a good book!!! Currently, I'm just starting Isaiah's Legacy by Mesu Andrews, so I'll post a line from there:

    "I hated weeding the garden alone, but I'd rather Abba copy his scrolls inside than bear our neighbor's cutting remarks."

    Hope you have a great weekend and a blessed Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜Š❤๐Ÿ“–

  2. My first line is from Seconds to Live by Susan Sleeman:
    One Mistake. That was all it took to put Dustee’s life on the line-death right on her heels.
    Merry Christmas!
