Armed & Magical (Raine Benares #2) Eve of Chaos (Marked #3)

Rolling his eyes, Mr. Hawk faced me again and smiled. I’ll give you a brief history lesson, then you must begin your duties. Reaching up, he tugged the maid’s cap on my head.

Then why did we even go down there? My hands felt shaky when I started chopping a pear, but I ignored it. I couldn’t forget the image of how sickly Jane looked, and how content she was with that.I thought maybe you’d be able to talk some sense into her. He shrugged. But now she knows that you still care, and if she has a change of heart, she’ll talk to you.

The Arrangement 9 (The Arrangement #9)

Jane’s never listened to me about anything, and you know it.Maybe so, but this is her choice, and you have to let her make it. He was on the other side of the island from me, leaning across it.My body was naturally pulled to him, and I pretended like pears and apricots were more interesting. Unfortunately, I’d never been a coordinated person, and I didn’t do much better as a vampire. I was distracted by Jack and thoughts of Jane, so it was only a matter of time before the knife sliced my finger.

Sycamore Row (Jake Brigance #2)

I yelped and pulled my hand back, sustaining my first real injury as a vampire. The pain was much sharper and more intense than any I had felt as a human, but it died away instantly. The cut was nasty, hitting the bone in my index finger. If my bones hadn’t been so strong, I probably would’ve sliced the tip right off.I stared down at it, watching the blood seeping from my wound with some amazement. This was my blood, and I could smell it, warm and strangely exotic.

You do smell really good, Jack said in a hushed tone.

The pink edges of the cut were already healing, right in front of my eyes, and I glanced up at him. His eyes had gone translucent, and I heard his heart speed up. Nothing in the world was more enticing to him than the scent of my blood, and that hadn’t changed when I became immortal.Jesse had actually thought a lot about what it would be like to fight a vampire. Years ago, Jesse had had a . . . mild disagreement with Dashiell, and the vampire had used just a little bit of his strength to mess with Jesse. After that, he’d thought a lot about what he’d need to do if he ever went up against a vampire for real. And yet here he was, in that exact situation, and his mind went completely blank.

Jesse was still lying on the ground, trying to get his breath back from when Frederic had kicked the air out of his lungs. Seeing that Jesse wasn’t going to be an immediate threat, the vampire turned toward Lee Harrison. Don’t look in his eyes, man, Jesse said in a groan. He actually wasn’t feeling that bad anymore, but Frederic didn’t need to know that. He can mess with your mind.The vampire turned his head to glare at Jesse, who avoided his gaze. Shut up, Mr. Cruz, Frederic barked. My employer has some questions, but if you open your mouth again I’m going to conveniently forget that he wanted to talk to you.

Hogfather (Discworld #20)

Jesse went quiet. But Lee must have listened to the warning, because the next thing Jesse heard was a grunt of frustration from the vampire. He changed his grip on Lee, grabbing the old man by the head, but the biker president hauled off and hit him. Jesse winced. It was a damn good hit. Lee had probably broken his hand.Frederic chuckled. Jesse couldn’t see Lee’s face, but the biker was cradling his hand, shaking his head in disbelief. Look at me, Frederic said in a voice so seductive that it probably made heterosexual women drop their pants on the spot.

Jesse began easing his body slowly toward his Glock, which had landed about six feet away on the sidewalk encircling the building. Open your eyes! Frederic said impatiently. Lee was putting up a fight. Good.All right, fine, Frederic said in a bored, resigned voice. Have it your way. He grabbed Lee’s injured hand and squeezed hard enough to draw a cry of pain from Lee. The distraction caused the old man to forget all about his resolution not to meet Frederic’s eyes. Yessss, Frederic hissed. He was pressing the guy.

You will continue working for Oskar and me, Frederic was saying. You will not ask questions. You will not interfere with our plans. You will only obey.Lee nodded his head mechanically, and Jesse actually felt sorry for him. But Frederic would be done any second, so Jesse focused on flopping his body over the gun, wrapping his fingers around the cold steel.

Good. Now, sit down on the ground until Oskar or I call you, Frederic said, giving Lee a rough pat on the cheek. With that, the vampire turned around to face Jesse, immediately forgetting Lee’s existence. Faster than Jesse could even follow, Frederic hurtled through the air and kicked him in the face. Jesse felt his nose give way, and warm blood exploded across his face. A groan escaped his lips.Mr. Cruz, Frederic said with a sigh, I know you’re used to hanging out with Dashiell’s little whore, but I’m a vampire. Do you really think I can’t hear the sound of metal scraping on concrete?
