Demons, Ink by Clayton W. Snyder

“To be precise, I’d say you’re in the village of Hamlin. To be realistic, I’d say you’re exactly where you need to be.”
C.W. Snyder, Child of Nod

“In the last room before we came to another open hallway, there was a goose. Bones littered the floor of the goose room. Even the golem gave it a wide berth as it softly honked in warning at us. "What's with the goose?" Cord asked. The golem shrugged. "He was already here. No one wants to fuck with him.”
Clayton Snyder, River of Thieves
