    In New York, 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. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, 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.

    Highly entertaining

    After saving the world from his fiendish father's side of the family, Cal Leandros and his stalwart half-brother Niko have settled down with new digs and a new gig - bodyguard and detective work. And in New York City, where preternatural beings stalk the streets just like normal folk, business is good. Their latest case has them going undercover for the Kin - the werewolf Mafia. A low-level Kin boss thinks a rival is setting him up for a fall, and wants proof.

    Halfhuman Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, aren't exactly prospering with their preternatural detective agency. Who could have guessed that business could dry up in New York City, where vampires, trolls, and other creepy crawlies are all over the place? But now there's a new arrival in the Big Apple. A malevolent evil with ancient powers is picking off humans like sheep, deadset on making history with an orgy of blood and murder.

    Another must have

    This is the third book in the series and I'm on my second time through the entire series and it's just as good as it was the first time. I don't often..Show More »

    In a nightmarish New York City, life is there for the taking... Halfhuman 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 unundead). 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.

    Another great one

    Once, while half-human Cal Leandros and his brother Niko were working on a case, an ancient gypsy queen gave them a good old-fashioned backstabbing. Now, just as their P.I. business hits a slow patch, the old crone shows up with a job. She wants them to find a stolen coffin that contains a blight that makes the Black Death seem like a fond memory. But the thief has already left town, so the Leandros brothers are going on the road. And if they're very, very lucky, there might even be a return trip.

    MUST LISTEN

    Loved it! I recommend this book and the whole series. Narrator did a great job capturing such a distinctive voice.

    When half-human Cal Leandros wakes up on a beach littered with the slaughtered remains if a variety of hideous creatures, he's not that concerned. In fact, he can't remember anything - including who he is. And that's just the way his deadly enemies like it.

    good

    Loved this book and it was entertaining to see the differences between a Cal with memories and a Cal without memories.

    Half-human/half-monster Cal Leandros knows that family is a pain. But now that pain belongs to his half-brother, Niko. Niko's shady father is in town, and he needs a big favor. Even worse is the reunion being held by the devious Puck race - including the Leandros' friend, Robin - featuring a lottery that no Puck wants to win. As Cal tries to keep both Niko and Robin from paying the ultimate price for their kin, a horrific reminder from Cal's own past arrives to remind him that blood is thicker than water.

    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.

    I ♡ Cal & Niko Leandros!

    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..Show More »

    I let it go - all of it. Everything I'd been saving up all my life, building and growing inside me, too much to hold in one half-human body. It pushed and fought to be free with a force that turned me into a bomb with a timer vibrating on zero. I was free. But so was everything I'd fought so hard not to be... Brothers Cal and Niko Leandros know trouble when they see it - and then proceed to wipe the floor with it. But now it seems their whole world is falling to pieces.

    Lots of Action and from Robin's POV!

    I am so happy that part of this story was told from Robin's POV. Being inside his head is a fun place to be.

    The Vigil, a group devoted to concealing the paranormal from humanity, has decided Cal has stepped out of the shadows once too often, and death is the only sentence. They plan to send a supernatural assassin into the past to take down the younger, less lethal Cal. But things change when The Vigil makes one last attempt on Caliban's life in the present - and end up destroying everyone and everything he cares about.
