Born in Cyprus.
The man who sat at the opposite end of the long dining table, slowly cutting into a thick red steak, was Valborg Svensson. One of his many, many names.
Born in hell." - Black by Ted Dekker
This is actually from the prelude (I think that's the correct word or would you use preface?) of the book and not the first chapter. And I know it is more than a couple of sentence, but they're short so I posted a bit more so you can meet two of the characters.
These first few pages actually confused me a little because I only got a brief glance at the middle of something that had been building for a while. But at Chapter 1 the author jumps back twenty-four hours and slowly starts piecing the meanings together.
This is actually a Christian book series. Similar to the Narnia books you can see the comparisons to Christianity, but anyone who enjoys a bit of fantasy, mystery, romance all mixed together would enjoy this book.
Full review coming soon, after I finish the last few pages.
