Opening Sentence of the Day: The Fire
"Solarin gripped his little daughter's mittened hand firmly in his own."
-- The Fire by Katherine Neville
Neville wrote the precursor to this book, The Eight, in 1988. I haven't read that one, but this is supposed to be OK as a stand alone. It is also being heralded as the next Da Vinci Code, which gives me mixed feelings.
