One high horn shrilled and ceased. The silence that followed was shaken only by the sound of many footsteps keeping time with a drum struck softly at heart-pace (5)
This beginning is from the first chapter of the book. It's a decent opener, I think. Definitely a little eerie, especially considering the title of the chapter: The Eaten One. This is the second book in the Earthsea Cycle by Ursula K. LeGuin. I read A Wizard of Earthsea in 2012. (Click here for the review) I thoroughly enjoyed it, as I really love LeGuin's writing. I hope to have a review up by sometime this weekend.
