  • Wounded(Anita Blake Vampire Hunter #24.5)(45) by Laurell Kaye Hamilton
  • “Ireland is supposed to be one of the most magically tolerant countries in the world. I’m feeling seriously picked on,” I said.

    “It’s nothing personal, Blake.”

    “I do not think that means what you think it means,” I said.

    He gave a small laugh. “Thanks, we needed that.”

    “Anita can help us,” Edward said.

    “Are you admitting that the high-and-mighty Ted Forrester, the one that the vampires have nicknamed Death, can’t handle things here without his sidekick, the Executioner?”

    “Death and the Executioner—has a nice ring to it,” I said.

    “So does Death and War,” he said.

    “That’s catchy, too.”

    “War is Anita’s newest nickname from the vampires and wereanimals,” Edward explained.

    “Why didn’t you get a new nickname?” Sheridan asked.

    “Death suits me,” he said, and I could almost see him give her that terribly direct eye contact from his pale blue eyes. It was like having a winter sky stare at you.

    I could hear the shiver in Sheridan’s voice over the speakerphone when she said, “Yes. Yes, it does.” Her tone told me that our bid to get her to back off the crush by talking about Donna and the wedding hadn’t worked. Edward was handsome, but this level of persistence made me wonder what he’d done to impress her this much.
