Deathwish (Cal Leandros, Book 4) by Rob Thurman

Deathwish (Cal Leandros, Book 4) Deathwish by Rob Thurman

In a nightmarish new york city, life is there for the taking...

Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother Niko are hired by the vampire Seamus to find out who has been following him—until Seamus turns up dead (or un-undead). Worse still is the return of Cal’s nightmarish family, the Auphe. The last time Cal and Niko faced them, they were almost wiped out. Now, the Auphe want revenge. But first, they’ll destroy everything Cal holds dear...

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another enjoyable story about Cal & Niko. The Auphe who managed to survive their last encounter with Cal & Niko are back and bent on revenge. They have promised to kill everyone that Cal cares about and only then deal with Cal himself. We also meet Cherish, Promise's wayward daughter (who btw Niko knew nothing about). Needless to say she is NOT a chip off the old block.
I do have a complaint. I very much disliked how the author jumped back and forth between Nik and Cal narrating the book. Each chapter would change from one to the other and I did not like it. If anything I think it took away from the story since we got a lot of introspection from each character as well as the story.
Looking forward to the next chapter in the lives of Nik & Cal.
