    Summary

    Skulduggery Pleasant has heard her name before - who hasn't? Valkyrie Cain, the one who secrets into the Sanctuary for midnight meetings with the Grand Mage. Who is somehow on the edge of most criminal activity in the city, nearby but unlinkable. Who has friends in high places, and even more in the low ones. In spite of her questionable history, Valkyrie proves a quick and willing partner to him - even though Skulduggery still can't discern her motives for doing so.

    Summary

    She should say something but she doesn’t, she should calm down but she doesn’t, she loves him but she-

    Well. He’s always been her exception, after all.

    It’s a little more bearable, now that the rain has started to pour and his hand is on her waist.

    Summary

    He wants to kill them. Itches for it; it’s killing him to stand still. He’s never been very good at waiting. And with every moment that ticks past, as he watches them barely move and barely speak in their little camp that’s suddenly a lot less safer, he thinks of a minute spent waiting for them in Serpine’s castle. The little mantra, repeated silently to himself over and over and over again to chase down the choking terror. They’ll come. They’ll come. They’ll come.

    They didn’t.
