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."


21. Chapter 20

Shadow Wolf - Tihana

I had to admit, I would miss him. His stupid jokes... Rubbish punchlines... His cocky stature. I sighed, only glancing back once- when I had come to the end of the street. I would say with a tear in my eye, but that would just be inaccurate. No. I left the silly boy in the hands of the skeleton detective and his partner. Too late to investigate for now.

The sun was inching closer to the horizon. I gave a half-snarl, picking up my pace a bit. The further I got the sooner I'd be back to make sure that idiot didn't do anything stupid. Now. To England, land of... something. Probably tea. And Unicorns. Or was it lions?


Her ankles lengthened, heels pushing out of her shoes. Her nose elongated into an elegant muzzle, hands turned to paws. A bestial howl emerged from Tihana's muzzle, all traces of human gone. She was too far from Tyrian to be even a quarter of her previous state of mind. She only had one goal- get to London. That stayed imprinted in her memory, burning through her mind.

With a snarl, the werewolf charged forward, continuing over field and moorland, forest and hills. She traveled faster in this form. So, so much faster. She could leap the bushes, and land in a run on the other side. The feeling was glorious, to be free once more was like nothing else to the werewolf. To feel wind in her fur like she had not in years, centuries. No, this was her with free reign once more. Normally, she was nothing more than the Chase family's dog. A dirty mut with no sense of pride. Sometimes even dogs barked out taunts. Now, she was free. Now she could do as she pleased.
