He claims that the Muldoons were descended from powerful sorcerers, even The Ancients , although Valkyrie proves him wrong. They were normal human children, who later became sorcerers.
After their father died and their mother went insane, they believed themselves superior to mortals. They attacked a group of mortals, and the Council of Elders ordered them to be ambushed.
They escaped, but all three were transformed into goblins, with gold as their only source of returning to human form, making them resort to stealing and exchanging babies. They reach a ruined church, and the zombie leaves for the exchange to take place.
The first of the brothers, Liam, demands Valkyrie's money, but she persuades him to give her the babies first. He calls his brothers Colm and Fintan, who come with the babies.
After she gives them the gold, they reveal that it is a double-cross. Skulduggery was the person responsible for turning them into goblins, and they say that they will send Skulduggery his head in order to make him come at them. Once he is in their grasp, they intend to kill him too. The session is interrupted when Skulduggery bursts through the ceiling and crashes onto the floor painfully.
The goblins reveal that Skulduggery was attacked by their sister, Peg. She crashes through the ceiling too, covered in wedding dresses and shouting out that she loves Skulduggery.
It appears that Skulduggery and Peg have met before, with Skulduggery throwing an entire mountain on her to try and kill her. She just had to pass this guy and then she could run out into the quiet street, shout for Milo, and he'd come roaring up in the Charger and they could get the hell out of there. No fuss, no muss.
The man in the boiler suit had a claw hammer on the table in front of him. It was bloodstained. There was a chunk of scalp hanging off it. Amber froze. He didn't have a nice voice. It was curiously strained, like he'd spent most of his life shouting. She kept her eyes on the door and took another step. And another. I expected something else, to be honest. All the things you've done, I expected someone a little more ,,," he licked his lips, ",,, impressive.
She had to.
Her gaze moved slowly, and reluctantly, from the door to the booth. First she looked at the claw hammer, then at the remains of the pie he'd been eating. Then at his rough, worn hands, and the blood-splattered sleeves of his boiler suit.
He was thin. He had a narrow face and a pointed chin and a nasty smile. No hair.
His cap had a faded logo Amber couldn't make out. Her eyes finally settled on his and she had the strangest feeling of vertigo. He had an accent. Georgia, maybe. I like your style.
I'd been searching for the best way to kill that prick for years, but you got there first. It's what you can give me. He wasn't tall, he had maybe two inches on Amber, but she took a step back nonetheless. Besides, it's been way too long since I got to kill new folks. Do you know what it's like, little girl, do you have any idea what it's like to be trapped in a middle-of-nowhere town where the biggest challenge is to find someone worthy to stalk? Jesus H. Christ, what is it with the young people of today?
I'm old-fashioned and I make no apology for it. I like to stalk and kill teenagers. I like a challenge, you know what I mean? Teenagers are fit and strong and they're surrounded by family and friends ,,, but do you know what makes them so perfect to stalk? They run to parents, they run to cops, they tell them a bad man is trying to kill them, but no one takes them seriously. The look on their faces when they realise they're alone - that they are truly alone - after a lifetime of being told they'll be supported no matter what ,,, Well.
It's just heaven, is what it is. But these days, trying to find one who can put up a decent fight is an impossible task. Worthy teenagers are a dying breed, and that is a sad state of affairs. You gonna put up a fight? You've got that look about you. It's in the eyes. Man, isn't this just typical? I find a teenager who may actually be able to mount a challenge and I'm not allowed to kill her.
No killing the girl, those are my orders. I'm just here to bring you back. Must be nice. But yes, I am guilty as charged, as I said at my trial.
Now you've managed to stay ahead of the Hounds, which is a feat that few have accomplished for this long, but now the professional is here to take care of business and to stop all this silliness. I don't have any use for it. Besides, you can't match what he's offering.
See, I made a mistake when I made my deal with the Devil. A lot of us do. We get fixated on the people who caught us. All I wanted was to get my revenge on that Podunk little town - but when I was done? I couldn't leave. I didn't exist beyond its borders. The Shining Demon will, ah, broaden my remit. I'll be able to travel. Kill people in new places. And this is just a taster of that. Look at me - Elias Mauk - killing in Canada. I'm gonna take my show on the road.
A thick band of still-sizzling flesh wrapped around his head where the electricity had been focused. Amber could smell the burning skin from where she stood.
Mauk put his cap back on, and grinned. It was more like forty, but that was back when I was alive. Ever since the chair, my body count has grown. And after this? It's gonna skyrocket. Killing a room full of people is distressingly easy for someone like me.
You gotta put up some resistance, at least. I killed Dacre Shanks. Now he's dead and it's the kind of dead that you don't come back from. I'll kill you, too. But Shanks was nothing.
Take his precious little key away from him, and what did he have to offer? Tell me if this is true - when you found him, was he stuck inside one of his own dollhouses?
I've heard he was stuck inside one of his own dollhouses. That's funny. How'd you kill him? You step on him?
