For being in the heart of what was the Venatori – there were tattoos every fucking where, it felt quieter than most places. The only people I felt were Nox, the two dragons with him and a handful of others throughout my current reading range. But it was a change from being in Nox’s apartment where there was only him. Whatever warding they did to … Continue reading Father Figure
The Apex Unlimited building was a spectacle but I think that was why the Venatori built it, it’s curves making it stand out against the sharp lines of Manhattan. Inside was just as grand.
