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."


36. Chapter 35

Shadow Wolf - Tihana

I snarled at every single one of them. Both Skulduggery and Valkyrie had joined us, and we battled hard. As soon as one got to close, I lunged, crushing bones beneath me and scattering others everywhere. It was rather fun, if I do say so myself. I'd never really liked necromancy. Something about bringing back the dead sent shivers down my spine, and I got this strange longing to use it. I didn't like that feeling. The few maces that hit me were pretty annoying. On a few occasions I even whimpered. I made sure it wasn't too loud. I risked a glance behind. They skeletons were closing in. Mr. Pleasant and Miss. Cain were having a whale of a time taking each and every bone apart. I looked toward Tyrian.

He fell, collapsing as the skeletons obscured him from my view. He was only a few meters away. The anger and rage that consumed me in that moment burned inside me. They might be dead, but could still tell that an angry werewolf was a bad thing. In the confusion, a few tried to move back. They knocked at the others. I ignored them, snapping bones as I battled my way back to my partner. I uttered the following with a dark tone "Nothing. I repeat, nothing, touches him." They would not get Tyrian. Not after what his family had done for me. Not after they had given me a pack of my own, a family.

I reached him, yellow eyes scanning his wound. I licked his face, the taste of his blood sending tingles down to my paws. This all happened in the space of no longer than five seconds. Then, I turned on the undead like an assassin on her victim under a moonlit sky.
