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 and Shadowwolf - Tyrian

We huddled around a small table in an equally small, smelly room. There was a candle in the center of the table, dripping wax.

"As you all know, we've got an outbreak of vampires." Tihana started. "All we currently know, is that they're led by a vampire-

I butted in. "He's called the Stig."

Tihana sent me a withering look. "Ha-ha. Anyway, he's called Dusk." She shivered with repulsion, and I heard her mutter something under her breath. "Stupid Vampire..." Before returning to full volume. "He has led several attacks on different villages and random mortals." She inhaled, and nodded at me.

Everyone turned and looked at me oddly. "What? Anyway, as you might have guessed, and heard, we're from the English sanctuary. Lovely fellows who enjoy a spiffing cup of tea." I received a glare from Tihana, and grinned at her in return, "We're here, because we both have had... interesting... encounters with the wonderful creatures we call vampires. That lot to the east have decided we're the best pair to lend a hand around here- And no. Before you ask, we're not going to try and take over." Everyone looked around. "Charming, right?"

Ghastly stood up. "What I want to know is, why is there only two of you?" Tihana looked at him and gave a knowing smile.
