Cyrus, Prince of Persia (Hardcover)

Chapter One
The Black Scorpion

The wind from the east was starting to freshen. The stranger in the dark blue hooded cloak squinted, feeling breeze-blown dust pecking at his face.

Here, in this scrubland on the edge of the plains, only a few palm trees and prickly bushes managed to eke out a frugal living. To the north, the land rose sharply toward the summit of a wide sand dune. Beyond this were the mountains, their peaks covered with snow regardless of the season in the lowlands.

The stranger began walking to the south, his hooded cloak concealing his features with the exception of his thoughtful dark brown eyes. Presently he came to a road that was little more than a dirt track.

As he reached it, he noticed a black desert scorpion scuttling across. A few moments later he heard the roar of an approaching car. The stranger stepped out into the road, stooped and picked up the scorpion, holding it firmly just under its lethal sting.

The car, a beat-up, faded green Mercedes, screeched to a halt. An unshaven driver rolled down the window and started swearing.

The stranger, his face still obscured, merely walked off the road in his own good time, ignoring the driver’s shouts.

The car raced past, spewing black smoke and curses, whipped by the gathering wind.

When the stranger was some way from the road, he set the black scorpion onto the sandy ground and watched it dart away. He knew the scorpion was even more poisonous than the desert cobra, but neither held any fear for him.

For a few seconds he stood in complete silence and stillness, trying to remember, as if a moment of the past had caught up with him. Features of the surrounding landscape . . . how familiar they suddenly were!

Finally he headed toward the nearby town, using for his guide the rough road . . . and a memory, slowly becoming more substantial within him, that he couldn’t understand, let alone explain.
