I stopped and let them circle me, first because it was intriguing and, second, because, honestly, what could they do? Only knives, but all armed, and that made them even more interesting. Interesting. Fun. Playtime...
Taking on bloodthirsty supernatural monsters is how Caliban and Niko Leandros make a living. But years ago - before they became a force to be reckoned with - the brothers were almost victims of a very human serial killer. Almost. Unfortunately for them, that particular depraved killer was working as apprentice to a creature far more malevolent - the legendary Spring-heeled Jack. He's just hit town. He hasn't forgotten what the Leandros brothers owe him. And now they are going to pay... and pay... and pay...

This is another great story in the Cal Leandros series! I can't wait to listen to the next book. This is the 1st series I've listened to were there is a preview of the following book at the end of the book your currently listening to. Enjoy!
Yes I would consider the audio edition of Slashback to be better because of the narrator adds to the story. MacLeod Andrews brings these characters to life, making them fell as if they can walk off the page.
This book is one that could be lessened to in one sitting, set aside some time to listen to this book because once you start to listen to this book you will not want to stop.
This book flashes between when Cal and Niko were kids and to the present day. I love to see how they have changed over the years and how they have stayed the same. If you liked the last books this is a must read.

I am normally not of fan of stories that flash back to the past and present but this story for Cal and Nicko was so smartly done, I was drawn into their lives and fell hard for both of them. You have human and non human monsters, action, a bit of comedy, gore, camaderie, and a wonderful narrator. Just everything that gives an audio story 5 stars and more!
MacLeod Andrews is AMAZING, an absolutely amazing narrator! I believed his was the 11 year old Cal, I believed he was the 15 year old Nick, I believed he was the older versions of them and the secondary and background characters were believable.
He did such a wonderful job with each character he performed, then easily slipped back into the narration...just wonderful! And thank God from book 2 and on he is the narrator. I'm off to purchase the rest of the series except for book 1 of course. I'll just read that myself.
Whoever chose him as the narrator did an excellent job with their choice!
