Re: Looking for a Few Good (or Bad!) Hooks

Okay, I will offer mine. It is very generic and beginner level. But, it expresses the kind of atmosphere I want to create for my fantasy fiction right away:

The cataclysmic sky was swirling with clouds, dark and sinister. The King of the Gods, Arya, looked solemnly at Yaman, the dark demon with two shiny fangs. Behind him, fire burned bright red and spread into the enormous pit that surrounded the two inhuman creatures. Other gods stood audience, their weapons drawn, watching tensely through the roaring flames. The fiery pit separated them from the large fighting ground where God King Arya was taking down the Agni Asura Yaman.
