Second Sentence Saturday is a meme started by Jess at From Me To You. Every Saturday, I’ll feature the second sentence of either the prologue or first chapter of one of the books I’m currently reading. I’ll post the title, author and cover, as well as a link to Goodreads, so you can add it to your To Be Read pile if you wish!
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
My regiment was two weeks’ march from the military encampment at Poliznaya and the autumn sun was warm overhead, but I shivered in my coat as I eyed the haze that lay like a dirty smudge on the horizon.
