Description

"There are monsters among us. There always have been and there always will be. I've known that ever since I can remember, just like I've always known I was one...

...Well, half of one, anyway."

Welcome to the Big Apple. There's a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side--and that's only the beginning. Of course, most humans are oblivious to the preternatural nightlife around them, but Cal Leandros is only half-human.

His father's dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares--and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal. Why? Cal hasn't exactly wanted to stick around long enough to find out.

He and his half-brother Niko have managed to stay a step ahead for three years, but now Cal's dad has found them again. And Cal is about to learn why they want him, why they've always wanted him...for he is the key to unleashing their hell on earth. The fate of the human world will be decided in the fight of Cal's life...

About Rob Thurman

Rob, short for Robyn (yes, he is really a she) Thurman lives in Indiana, land of rolling hills and cows, deer, and wild turkeys. Many, many turkeys. She is also the author of the Cal Leandros Series: Nightlife, Moonshine, Madhouse, and Deathwish; has a story in the anthology Wolfsbane and Mistletoe; and is the author of Trick of the Light, the first book in the Trickster series.

Besides wild, ravenous turkeys, she has a dog (if you don't have a dog, how do you live?)--one hundred pounds of Siberian husky. He looks like a wolf, has paws the size of a person's hand, ice blue eyes, teeth out of a Godzilla movies, and the ferocious habit of hiding under the kitchen table and peeing on himself when strangers come by. Fortunately, she has another dog that is a little more invested in keeping the food source alive. By the way, the dogs were adopted from shelters. They were fully grown, already housetrained, and grateful as hell. Think about it next time you're looking for a Rover or Fluffy.

Our customer reviews

I just recently discovered this author and series. I've seen this author and her work around the blogosphere for sometime but just never picked it up until now. My mountainous TBR pile might have something to do with my resistance there. There are some scenarios in the book where it was just too logistically impossible in which the "suspension of disbelief" has to drop a little. But because of the compelling storytelling quality, I can overlook this as a reader. The story also has unexpected twists to keep a reader glued to the pages. The book is fast-paced, action-filled with humor between the pages and satisfying ending! Love it!
