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."

Shadow Wolf - Tihana

Tihana opened one eye, watching Tyrian as he battered the skeleton with his insults. A sort of laugh rippled through her body in the form of a growl.

I don't trust him. Be wary. She advised him. That was the useful thing about him. She could communicate. She returned her amber gaze to the skeleton, who had lent back in his chair, perplexed. Tihana raised her muzzle, a shaft of light from the door illuminated her snout, leaving her eyes and forehead in shadow. She loved light. Such an interesting thing. Always so many different ways it could fall. Curious, the werewolf tugged her head to the side. The chains groaned with the strain, nails creaking their warning. Skulduggery was up in an instant, halfway to the door with flame in his hand as she gave him a wolfish grin. The chain slackened again, and she gave him a knowing look.

She'd seen enough sorcerers in her time to know when one was holding a secret. This skeleton had plenty of places to hide secrets. This skeleton had plenty of secrets to hide. She flicked her bushy tail, shifting her paws to a more comfortable position.  Again, Skulduggery was alert. Tyrain slept soundly. Occasionally, Tihana would get slightly distressed images before they faded once more. He was going to have that dream again. The she-wolf gave a short bark-howl, loud enough to wake the boy, but quiet as to not surprise the whole sanctuary. Half of her desired to escape, to run free in the wind. The other half, the more intelligent half, told her to wait, and scolded the other side.

Skulduggery tilted his head as Tyrain awoke. He watched her with interest for a while, before turning back towards the ex-sleeper.

Yes. This would be fun. Staying in Ireland would be interesting. Very interesting.
