Who bought Elijah?

19 Mar

I picked up Elijah by Jacquelyn Frank about a month and a half ago, but just opened it. Can somebody tell me what page number their books starts with? Mine begins on page 8 with the line “Elijah fell to his knees, clutching his chest…” I just want to make sure that this is right before I continue reading.

    I have an ebook copy. It opens with a prologue:

    PROLOGUE

    Whosoever wishes to know the fate of Demonkind must consult these prophecies…

    …as magic once more threatens the time, as the peace of the Demon yaws toward insanity…

    …it will come to pass that in this great age things will return to the focus of purity that Demonkind must always strive for. Here will come the meaning and purpose of our strictest laws, that no uncorrupted human shall be harmed, that peaceful coexistence between races shall become paramount…

    —Excerpts from The Lost Demon Prophecy

    …it is therefore forbidden for any of Demonkind to mate with creatures who are not their equals, not of their nature, not of their strength and power. Those lesser creatures are ours to protect from ourselves, not to be violated in impure sexual abomination. This is the law and the will of nature. The dog does not lie with the cat; the cat does not lie with the mouse. Whosoever breaks this sacred trust must suffer under the hand of the law…

    —Excerpts from The Original Scroll of Destruction

    Elijah fell to his knees, clutching at his chest as warmth spread between his fingers, staining them and his white shirt a bright crimson. He looked down at the blossoming picture of his life’s essence spreading over the material, almost with the fascination given to the sprawling, artistic circlets of a tie-dyed shirt.
