First Line Friday

Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Bookworm Nation!
This fun meme is easy to do, simply pick up the book you're currently reading and share the very first line! There are some really good first lines out there, they grab you and suck you right into the story--
make you want to keep reading. My selection for this week is:

Planet of the Red Dust
by N. Tolman Rudolph


"Every shovelful of red-gold sand he threw from the hole whispered, who will dig a grave for you, Jared Adams?"

Jared Adams is the sole survivor of the space ship Wayfarer, wrecked on a dead planet, alone in this barren world. Until he sees two humans arrive at the crash site.

Aaronia, daughter of the king, and her uncle Porto are in awe of this strange man who speaks babble and yet appears God-like. He rescues her uncle from a deadly beast by throwing lightning from his hand, then takes them back to their camp in a miraculous cart that runs on its own power.

Though their languages are different, Aaronia and Jared are drawn to each other. Still, her father the king, in fear of Jared’s technology, imprisons him and sentences him to death.

Aaronia must not only prevent Jared’s execution, she and Jared must find a way to save the people of Sionon from their forced execution by a dying planet.
