"Sitting at the desk in my chamber, I do not need to read the words of the prophecy to recall them. They are embedded in my mind as clearly as the mark that brands my wrist. Even still, there is something solid and reassuring about holding the cracked binding of the book my father hid in the library before his death." -Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink

Well, that sounds a bit sad, with the death of a father. And the prophecy? Well, since I've read the first book, I know what this means. Yep. What about you guys? Happy reading!

  3. Great first lines! So many questions. What are the prophecy's words? What and why is there a brand on the character's wrist? What is the book the father hid in the library and why?
