Tigger Warning: For cold-blooded murder, and mentions of serial killers.
I want you guys to re-read this passage twice, and please take care to pay special attention to the green highlighted parts okay? I really want you guys to take every word in so you can get the full effect of what Luke is saying.
Done? Okay! I suggest that everyone back up and duck for cover!
LUCIAN GREYMARK YOU ARE THE MOST DISGUSTING, DESPICABLE, MURDERING PIECE OF SHIT THAT I HAVE EVER HAD THE COURTSEY TO READ ABOUT AND I WISH YOU WOULD DIE PAINFULLY IN A FIRE!
I just can’t get over it. He is just calmly talking about murder like he was discussing the fucking weather! I mean, Luke admitted to targeting a bunch of innocent people, then plotted the cold blood murder of their leader so he can use the said aforementioned innocent people as fucking cannon fodder! Clary can talk about how bad Valentine is, but it’s been made very clear to me that Luke Garroway for me is the real villain of this story.
Luke’s character is actually very similar to a lot of real-life serial killers. He’s a bookish, normal, average guy. Luke is easily overlooked, and can just as easily fade into the background. Yet, in reality, he is calmly and methodically going out and murdering people. This isn’t hyperbole, this is actually taken straight from the text. Now, I want you to tell me with a straight face that Lucian Greymark doesn’t resemble a serial killer like Ted Bundy, Wayne Gacy, or Dennis Rader (The BTK Killer). I wouldn’t be surprised if Luke had some bodies buried in his basement.
*shutters* This guy scares me WAY MORE than Valentine. Valentine doesn’t hide who he is, but Luke is way more insidious because you don’t see him coming. This is just pure nightmare fuel folks! Seriously, as much as Jace infuriates me, Luke has to be the worst character in the entire book.
Now if you excuse me, I’m going to hide underneath my covers.
