Skulduggery Pleasant: Death's Dawn

"I grabbed the axe off of one of them, snapping it with a sharp crack, twisting around and driving it into the skull of another. These guys were easy to kill, but we were being overwhelmed. I was almost at Tihana's side again, when I felt the rock hit my head.

"Oh bollocks." Blood trickled down the side of my face, and then I passed out."

Swordlord - Tyrian

"So, you genuinely charge around, saving the world?"

It had been an hour since the fight. We'd all cleaned up, and were sitting inside a café.

"Yes. That's really what we do." Valkyrie said. She looked a lot more like a normal person without all the blood. I could tell she still didn't trust me. I can read people like a book, but I'm not Psychic. "But the real question is, how did you know the vampire's were going to be there?"

"I can't tell you." She glared at me. "No, really. I would if I could, but chances are I would probably be killed before I got the third word out."

Skulduggery shifted from his lounging position, the bones clicking horribly.

"The English Sanctuary formed a link with an elite group of Necromancer's in the Victorian era." He turned his head, and even though he had no eyebrows, I could tell he would be glaring at me as well. "You can't be suggesting that they still have that link?"

I shrugged. I didn't know.

We shuffled out of the café, leaving a small sum of money on the table. Outside, we went to where the car was parked. Only there was no car. Tire tracks were on the road.

"Well that's just bloody brilliant." I said. "I mean, surely you could of put some kind of protection on it? Like, locking the door?" Skulduggery looked at me, and shrugged.
