Well, I revised the prologue of my current WIP this afternoon, ended up changing it completely from an action-driven fight scene to a slower, characterization piece (slower being something of a relative term, considering what happens).

Anyway, I was wondering if it works as a hook. I was intending to start a bit more in media res, with Montgomery a bit older, and use this scene as a flashback later on to explain some things about him, but now that I actually wrote it and set it up this way, I kind of like it. Generally, I don't like prologues that occur (temporally) way before the main content (about 6 years, in this case), but for whatever reason I think this works.

Please let me know what you think. If you post a link to some work you would like critique on, I'll gladly return the favor.
