Rome is a city like no other, protected by a man like no other. He is the unnamed Immortal, the Man from Rome, and he is under attack. An agent of his secret order has been murdered, her tongue ripped out, her throat coated in molten silver. The killing is meant to be a message, a warning that old enemies have resurfaced to punish the Man for the sins of his past. Forced to retaliate, the Man sets in motion a sequence of events which pit an American thief, a Roman policewoman, and a fallen Olympian against one another in all-out war. The streets of Rome become a battleground where the supernatural clash with the mortal, and the Eternal City bears witness to yet another chapter in its storied history of violence. Vengeance reigns supreme in this, the newest Novel from Dylan James Quarles.
It was the dry rustle of displaced earth that announced their arrival. At first thinking he was imagining things, Hannity didn’t bother to look up. Yet, when the sound persisted then grew louder, his gaze shifted from the orange tip of his cigarette to the garden door. Bruno had turned stiff, his entire body as rigid as bronze. Rejoining him, Hannity leaned forward and strained his own ears to better hear through the wooden door.
“What was that?” He whispered.
Bruno flashed him a triumphant smile, and Hannity felt his doubt falter. Suddenly, an eruption of horrendous guttural noises leapt up from within the garden. Hannity dropped his cigarette and took a step back. Yips, snarls, and screams poured forth, echoing off the high walls.
“What the—” he began, but the words fell short.
Someone or something bashed against the other side of the door, making it shudder. Small voices cried out, morphing from pain to rage as the sounds of a scuffle, just inches away, ignited. The unseen combatants tore at one another until a loud, wet crunch marked the end of their struggle. Dark and reflective, a sheen of black blood spurted from under the door, pooling around Bruno’s expensive shoes.
“Boss?” Hannity asked, thinking of blunt force trauma. “What’s going on in there? What is this?”
“Only the strongest survive the first few minutes,” swallowed Bruno. “They are the elite—the one’s we want.”
