As part of the countdown to Deadlocked‘s release, I’m re-introducing you to some of the main characters in Harry’s world. Today’s spotlight, Salvador.
Salvador Arroyo is the Magister or leader of the Cimmerian (pronounced Ki-MARE-ian). The most powerful vampire in town and a wealthy businessman in the norm community, he is the Kingpin of the underworld and has his fingers in a lot of pies.
Deadlocked – Excerpt
“Salvador, it’s rude to just let yourself into other people’s homes.” I scowled at him and kicked off my shoes. We have a bit of a difference of opinion as to the current ownership of the old firehall I call my home and place of business. Salvador had signed it over to me, after buying it from the original owner, under duress I’m sure. It had been part of a deal that unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control and totally orchestrated by Salvador, had fallen through. We had renegotiated the terms, but despite having already given the deed for the building to me, Salvador still considered it his until our new deal’s conditions were met. Since that meant it would be another six months before I was free and clear of him, I was not a happy camper. It also meant that despite being a vampire and uninvited, Salvador could enter my home. Damn vampire loopholes.
