This scene may change. I look at the phrase “ready for bloodshed” and have to wonder: is anyone ever ready for bloodshed?
From Protector of the Grey House:
Natalia’s smile of confidence did not waver and neither did the looks on her friends’ faces. The humans and werewolves were ready for bloodshed. “What’s your name Father?”
“What does that matter?” He sounded righteous and angry, Natalia’s favorite kind of lunatic.
“I like to know the name of the people I kill. Makes it easier to pray for their souls.” She was mocking him.
He visibly grew more righteous. “You will beg for mercy before the end comes.”
A seductive look came over her features. “That would be a great way to go.”
