The Last Supper : The Apocalypse is Old News
Tanis Barlas, snake-woman assassin. Cason Cole, the killer of gods. Louie Fitzsimmons, the last known Prophet. And Rupert Wong, a chef who just wants to eat his instant noodles and stay home.
The Greek Pantheon has been obliterated, and gods and monsters across the globe are looking to fill the vacuum. But Rupert, Case, Fitz, and Tanis have bigger problems to deal with.
It’s time to answer the biggest question of all: Where did the father gods go?
“Okay, cool. We’ll just stand here and wait to die. No problem at all. Nothing ground-shatteringly worrying about this.”
“This is probably why urban fantasy books don’t feature buddy dynamics.”
And Ao Qin, who’d had eons to optimize his sense of dramatic timing, chooses that exact moment to speak.
It is a whisper. It has the percussions of a whisper, a hoarseness, a rasp to the disyllabic utterance, like he’d exhaled it into my ear. Yet it fills the world: my name made strange in the lungs of a god. It is everywhere. Before me, behind me, beside me—
I pause and peer at the prophet, suddenly aware that the stereoscopic effect isn’t quite complete, and what I’m really hearing is Ao Qin’s voice being softly mimicked from my left.
“What?” His voice is his again but despite the defensiveness, Fitz has the good sense to appear abashed. “It’s involuntary.”
“Rupert.” Ao Qin singsongs again, this time with more feeling. “Do you know how long I’ve waited? How many hours I’ve spent thinking about youuu? All that time in the fire, all that time I spent buuuurrning. Never once did I stop thinking about what you did.”
