I agree the writing is atmospheric. But unless the story is about the wolf and spirits, the opening lines are not telling me anything story-wise. I will read on a bit for the good writing, but if I can't grasp what the story is about in the next few paragraphs, I'm gone.Okay. Let's try this. First two lines from the novel I'm working on Tell me if I've got a good hook.
"It was the hour of the wolf, when spirits stole down silent halls. Too early to rise, and too late to rest, this was the time when lost souls wandered."
