These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

"I remember asking my dad what was wrong with the guy's eyes and my dad explained, "He's sold his soul, son. Whenever you see that look in another persons, you run like hell. You hear me?"
In retrospect, I realized it was a strange thing to tell a kid, but in that moment I understood what he'd meant, why he'd warned me.
The trafficker smiled at me, but it wasn't all friendly. He was a man who'd answered a call from the devil himself and he'd relished in it."

"Revenge is an euphoric thing. Trust me on this. Nothing compares to the release you get when you ruin someone’s life. When they've stolen important things. Things that didn't belong to them. Things I revel in making them pay for.
What? Have I offended you? I’m not here to appeal to your delicate senses. I have no intention of placating your wishes or living within your personal belief system nor do I care if you hate me. And you will hate me. Because I’m a brutal, savage, cold-blooded murderer and I’m here for my revenge.
I’m Ethan Moonsong…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most sacrificing man to the most feared and why I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world."
