Third Sentence Thursday: The Slayer of Gods by Lynda S. Robinson


(In which I flipped back and counted.)

This is the first time that I will be joining a meme again after a long time. And yes, it’s my busy schedule I always blame. But this one’s interesting. If I understood it right, all I have to do is post the badge, count sentences and write something.

Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday is a meme hosted by Sniffy Kitty to showcase a book’s third sentence magic.

1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence here (in the comments) or if you don't have a blog, just post it in the comments!

My first sentence is from The Slayer of Gods by Lynda S. Robinson.
Around her, in the breezy coolness of late evening, servants gossiped in the kitchen yard. – page 1
Gossiping. One of human’s most entertaining and dangerous past times. It’s really interesting that we find a conduit for our boredom in others' mishaps. And the ones most notorious for the penchant of juicy word-of-mouth tales are the servants – which are more often than not more dangerous.

As what Tracy Chevalier wrote in The Girl with the Pearl Earring, a master expects her servants – no matter how innocent-looking they are – to eavesdrop after a certain period of serving the household. And then what? That servant would soon be stealing too.
