Unpublished/Work In Progress Opening Lines

Following on from the last post, I’ve decided to list the opening lines (well, opening sentence really) of novellas/novels that are either finished and awaiting publication or are Works In Progress. Given their nature, both the opening sentence and titles are subject to change (particularly with the WIP). Question is, have my opening sentences improved? In no particular order…

“The pain he felt as he lay dying in the gutter, aged 27, the victim of a random, frenzied knife attack, could not compare to the agony he felt four years later when he was reanimated.”
Reanimated

“Earth Controller, he liked the sound of it.”
Liberation Of Worlds (Book Two in The Szuiltan Trilogy)

“She sat on the headstone, claws flexing, wings furled, as she had sat for almost four centuries.”
The Village Witch

“Six minutes before he died, Dr Lau Ka Ting knew they had killed him.”
The Wizards Of Yradion
