Caliban Leandros is half human-Rom and half Auphe, or as he's derisively labelled himself: half-human, half-monster, all attitude. He is a mass of dark sarcasm and angst and would shoot a monster in the back without a second thought. He loves his guns and he loves his brother Niko, so when Niko's shady father is in town and needs a big favour, Cal is on the lookout for danger. Even worse is the reunion being held by the devious Puck race, including Cal's friend Robin, with a lottery that no puck wants to win. As Cal tries to keep them safe, a reminder from his past arrives.

About the author (2012)

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.
