A Book Tag

The lovely author, Gwyneth Bolton tagged me with this book tag about a week ago and I'm finally getting around to it. I tag anyone who wants to participate!

Here are the rules:

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, look down to the 5th sentence.
3. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Include the title and the author's name.
5. Tag 3 people

The Tribe by Gregory Townes.
Star's voice echoed in my mind, pounding away at my resolve, eating away at my sanity. What man could stand to hear his child crying like this? What father could ignore his daughter's pleas for help?

I've been trying to read this book since summer 2006, and it looks like this week I will finally get to start reading it. I've heard a lot of good things about this novel, which comes higly recommended by die hard sci-fi and mystery readers. Below is the back of the book blurb.

The Dead Know What The Living Are Doing.
A 19th Century slave trader brought back more than just slaves on one voyage. He brought back the Curse of the Silver Eyes. A powerful tribe of shunned blacks, each born with silver eyes, the symbol of infinity as a birthmark, and blessed with incredible gifts, were captured by a slave trader and dispersed around the world. The tribe cursed those who stole them -- and the neighboring tribes that aided in their capture. Today, there is a group that wants to make that curse come true. And they've kidnapped a very special little girl named Star to do it...

WOW! Looks like I have another book to add to my to-be-read pile. This looks like it will be a great read--a great mix of paranormal, history, thriller--wow. Okay, I need to get this. I'm hooked on just what you've quoted here.

Thanks for being doing this. And remember, you don't have to feel obligated to tag me later. :-)

Gwyn -- the history genre is what snagged me. I'll let you know what I think when I'm done.

Cherlyn -- I know you've been busy writing and promoting. When you get a moment to breathe, check it out. :-)

Rose, this is a little out of the normal genres for me too...but I'm gonna take a chance and step out of my comfort zone with this one.
