“I’ve been called a lot of things, but what I really am is a survivor — and while there are more than a few stupid Sirens, tgere are zeri stupid survivors.
“Consider my record. I outlasted some of the Darkest Casters and creatures alive. I withstood whole months of Stonewall Jackson High School. Beyond that, I survived a thousand terrible love songs written by one Wesley Lincoln, a cluelss Mortal boy who became an equally clueless quarter Incubus. And who, by the way, is not the most gifted musician.
“For a while, I survived wanting to write him a love song of my own. That was harder.
“This Siren gig is meant to be a one-way street. Ask Odysseus and two thousand years’ word of dead sailors if you don’t believe me.”
What’s a Caster fairytale ending?
I don’t know, because Casters don’t get to have fairy tales — especially not Dark Casters. Forget the whole sunset. I’ll tell you how the whole castle burned to the ground, taking all the Prince Charmings down with it.
That’s what Dark Caster fairytale looks like.
What can I say? Paybacks’ a bitch.
But here’s the thing: So am I.
Let’s get something straight. I’m supposed to be the bad guy. I will always disappoint you. Your parents will hate me. You should not root for me. I am not your role model. I don’t know why everyone seems to forget that.
I never do.
Dangerous Creatures is out on May 20th.
