Feature & Follow Friday: Currently Reading Teaser

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel over at Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This is a chance to get to know fellow book bloggers and have them meet you. Be sure to pop over and meet this week's featured bloggers!

Share a random quote from the book you are currently reading.

"For a long time there was silence and endless sleep.
 Then came a grinding sound - a metallic scream and a dazzling flash of whiteness."

Scatterlings
Scatterlings by Isobelle Carmody

Merlin wakes to a world that is utterly changed. She has no memory aside from a name whispered to her by one of the strange voices in her mind, and the knowledge that she is being hunted. She is determined to learn what happened to her and to her world but the way forward is full of pitfalls and she is swept up by the renegade scatterlings and drawn into their rebellion against the all-powerful Citizen gods. 

But as she strives to separate herself from the telepathic clanfolk, she discovers the path to knowledge and way to the freedom the scatterlings seek, lead to the same place - the forbidden domed city of the Citizen gods.

First published in 1991, Scatterlings is a book club pick for this month and I have only just started. I'm only one chapter in! So the above quote is how this book starts. I'm definitely intrigued!

What are you currently reading? Please share a link to your FF post so that I can read your quote. Happy Friday!

    1. No, it's not. I was wondering too, but she's just named after Merlin. It was a good read, I'd recommend giving it a go. :-) Thanks, Verushka.

    1. Not exactly! However, that Merlin is still a female in this book which I found interesting. You'd have to read it to see what I mean, I kind of don't want to spoil too much! ;-) Thanks for stopping by, Carrie.
