  1.  Grab your current read.
  2.  Open to a random page.
  3. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  5. Remember to share the title and author too.

‘THE KISS OF THE BUTTERFLY’ by JAMES LYON

My teaser lines are taken from the 50% indicator on my Kindle copy.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

“Not really, at least, that is, I didn’t before I came. But I think it’s possible that there may be something behind the whole phenomenon.”

As he walked out the front door, she admonished him “Be extremely careful with whom you share this information. And watch your back at all times. If anything unusual happens to you, please tell me immediately. Goodnight. May God bless you.”

I haven’t reached this point in reading the book yet, so I am not too sure what is happening in this scene. It doesn’t look as though I am giving too much away with those lines though!

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a Kindle download of  ‘Kiss Of The Butterfly’, was sent to me free of charge, by its author James Lyon.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Tressa,

      Thanks for stopping by today. I love ‘meeting’ new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments will always be appreciated.

      I have still not read quite to the point in the book which my teaser lines come from, but I have to say that they don’t give anything away about the story, which is really starting to take shape now. If any of my current thoughts about the outcome of the story are correct, then the best is still to come!

      Have a great week.

      • Hi James,

        I bet you can’t wait to see the book in print and I hope that sales of both formats are going well for you.

        I am enjoying the book so far, although it definitely demands some concentration and a peaceful reading environment, to keep up with the many time changes and the subtle complexities of the plot.

    • Hi Alli,

      Thanks for deciding to stop by Fiction Books today. I love ‘meeting’ new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments always valued and appreciated.

      I still haven’t got to this point in the book and I have a couple of scenarios running around in my head, as to what might be happening in this scene. Neither of them bode very well for our protagonist, so I only hope that he decides to heed the advice!

      Have a great week.

    • Hi Marjanka,

      I too, love the cover imagery of this ebook edition of ‘Kiss OF The Butterfly’. I understand from a comment which the book’s author, James Lyon, left earlier, that the print edition is to have a completely different cover, yet to be revealed. I was privy to advance viewing of one potential alternative cover, back when James and myself were having conversations about the review, so I shall have to wait along with everyone else to see if this is the option he has elected to run with, or if there has been a radical re-think.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always valued and appreciated.

    • Hi Shandy,

      There could be couple of different potential scenarios for this scene, although one is as unsavoury as the other, so our protagonist had better heed the advice he is being given, very carefully!

      Thanks for taking part in the discussion, I always value your comments.

    • Hi Maria,

      I think that the whole exercise is about to become a little more scary than interesting, for our protagonist, Steven and I can’t wait to find out just what ‘she’ can do to help him, if anything unusual should happen!

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my TT, I love hearing from you.

    • Hi Tracy,

      I know that our protagonist, Steven, is becoming more than a little wary about the political situation he finds himself embroiled in, but I am not sure that he is aware of anything ‘unusual’ which might be about to happen to him.

      I have formed a couple of theories about what that ‘unusual’ happening might be, but I may be proved completely wrong. This is certainly an intriguing read!

      Thanks for the continuing interest you are showing in this book and for the supportive comments.

    • Hi Laurel Rain,

      I am just as curious as yourself, about who this mystery female is, who is so worried about something unusual happening to him and why she should want to know, if and when anything does happen!

      Thanks for visiting today and taking the time to comment, it is appreciated.

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      In such a fragmented and untrusting society, where our protagonist finds himself, it is probably wise that he watches what he is saying and doing. Trust is a word that doesn’t really exist and one word or deed, said or done in the wrong way, can have serious consequences. Or is there something even more sinister happening, which he doesn’t yet realise?

      I have my theory, so I can’t wait to see if I am correct!

      Thanks for taking the time to visit and enjoy the rest of your week.

    • Hi Melissa,

      Those lines just add to the intrigue surrounding our protagonist Steven and the research he has been charged with carrying out. Add that to the political mayhem and misery which exists within the country and you have a very toxic mix in the making!

      The iridescence of the cover image is very alluring, however, when this is all over, I may never look at butterflies in quite the same way again!

      Thanks for stopping by and for taking part in the discussion.

    • Hi Melissa,

      I haven’t checked out any other reviews for the book yet. When I have accepted an author review request, I generally prefer to read the book and form some of my own opinions first, before potentially being influenced by any other review.

      Yes, I suppose the story could be described as dark and brooding in places, although there are definitely some lighter moments and the makings of a glimmer of hope for the people of war-torn Yugoslavia. It is definitely a book that stimulates the imagination and makes you think and so far I am enjoying the read.

      Thanks for stopping by, your contribution to the discussion is valued.
