First Sentences: God of the Dark Chapter 2

Wonder Woman comics had a
minor character named Adrastea.
Novels tend to start with an inciting incident. Adrastea just had hers.

Chapter 2 What did he say? Adrastea shivered.

Sometimes in life we hear some unexpected news, usually bad: the loss of a pregnancy, the failure of a life-changing application, the death of a friend. When we hear this, often our brains freeze. They were not prepared to cope with this information. Everything comes to a standstill while the brain rearranges itself to process and understand this news we just heard. Sometimes our world views get rewritten.

Adrastea just had a significant basis of her theological beliefs shaken. Of course her brain would freeze up.
