Publisher's Summary

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. The place to start is the back room of Moonshine - a gambling club for non-humans. Cal thinks it's a simple in-and-out job. But Cal is very, very wrong. Cal and Niko are being set up themselves - and the people behind it have a bite much worse than their bark.

A new narrator

Where does Moonshine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to Steal Hart which was narrated by the same person. This book was done so well that I didn't realize that they had the same narrator. He gives the craters their own voice allowing them to be a distinctive presence through out the, never reminding a person of other books that Andrews has narrated.

Any additional comments?

The change in narrators is the best thing that could have happened for the audio versions of this book series. I disliked the narrator for the last book Nightlife.

Good, solid writing, and GREAT narration

Dyed-in-the-wool urban fantasy fan here. I've chewed my way through Dresden, Sandman Slim, Bobby Dollar, the Iron Druid, and many more that aren't as good, before stumbling across the Leandros brothers. Their adventures compare quite favorably with those (perhaps) more well-known series, with nice doses of epic battles of good vs. evil, scary monsters and super freaks, imaginative takes on age-old supernatural legends, a little romance, a little comedy, and lots of witty banter and a great, nicely fleshed-out, very real-feeling relationship between the brothers, Cal and Niko.
Of course, it doesn't hurt to have the ever-fabulous MacLeod Andrews narrating. He gives perfect voice(s) to the Sandman Slim books and Sanderson's Steelheart series, among many others; I'm thrilled that Audible has gotten him to perform books 2-9 of the Leandros books. The narrator of book 1 wasn't dreadful, but not great either; Andrews is pitch-perfect in tone and has created voices for the many human and non-human characters that are always right on the money.
It's a happy prospect to be spending a good part of this winter with the Mac Leod Andrews and the Leandros boys. Wholehearted recommend!

Perfect for what they are

Any additional comments?

Sometimes you're in the mood for books about the bonds between people, the triumph of good over evil...and killer two-headed werewolves.This book is just plain fun.

wonderful voicing

This book was well read with a narrator that really brought out the emotions and individual voices of every character. A wonderful dark urban fantasy that is thrilling to the very end. A good mix of family loyalty, sarcastic humor ,and the dark terror of the supernatural.

Please learn how to pronunce Auphe...

The Cal Leandros series is my favorite one. I still love the story but I had issues with this narrator. I liked the previous one better. I liked some of the voices he did but I can't get over how he pronunces Auphe. Drove me crazy every time.

I tried to care..

After 4 hours of listening to the mc repeatedly telling me how bad he was at coping with emotions, cooing over his brothers relationship and his angst ridden interaction with "his girl" George, I gave up.
The narrator did a great job but I refuse to let this book get more than 1 star.

GRRRR

Would you try another book from Rob Thurman and/or MacLeod Andrews?

no

What was one of the most memorable moments of Moonshine?

grrr the new reader mis-pronounces words that the first reader (Auphe esp) got right. Auphé is ***annoying***

How did the narrator detract from the book?

every time he'd use the wrong pronounciation I wince and growl. my dog is so confused

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I love the book, but the annoyance from the reader detracts

Any additional comments?

Love Cal & Niko, don't like MacLeod Andrews

Thank God for MacLeod Andrews being the narrator!

Any additional comments?

I decided not to purchase book one on audibles because the narrator's voice for Cal and Niko was a no go! He sounded like he should be their dad or grandpa. Thank goodness for whoever made the wise decision to use MacLeod Andrews as the narration for the rest of this series.

Wow! This story has me falling in love with the fantasy genre. The unique twists on vampires, werewolves, and the Auphe etc. is so innovative and creative.

You will not find a boring moment in this story and what's even better is, I look forward to listening to this series again because the stories are so creatively told and the narrator has a beautiful talent with voices. You will never be confused with which character is speaking.

This honestly feels as though it's a television series you're listening too and I appreciate that so much.

And, what I appreciate even more is the romantic endeavors aren't overwhelming. It's nice to just get a good creative story that doesn't make romance an important backdrop in the plot. I'd honestly prefer Robin's love life anyway. With him, you'll never know what you get but you know it'll be fun! 💞
