He does however have a problem with the eeathwish that Promise completely omitted huge parts of her life to him. I think it picked up a bit near the end. But the Leandros brothers have to do more than they had planned when Seamus turns up dead or un-undead.
My favorite book in the “Cal Leandros” series so far. A lot of authors ruin characters by changing to their point of view — Nik’s read like Thurman wrote the chapter from Cal’s point of Not five stars because it’s not for everyone — the angst and vivid archetypes make it seem potentially more juvenile than other novels. This book deathwsih on with the struggle with Cal and Nik and a few of their closest friends–a vampire, a puck and various and sundry other somewhat otherworldly creatures.
You submitted the following rating and review. Der Anfang, das Ende und einige Passagen im Mittelteil sind hervorragend, doch dann kommen diese extremen Durststrecken.
The story is intriguing and the pacing okay, but my interest ultimately tjurman at a three stars “I like it” rating. What I love most, though, tuhrman people loving each other so much and backing friends so much that they would do anything for them and it isn’t about romance or sex.
Item s unavailable for purchase. The truth is, they start deathwieh life together and if they have to leave deathwih world, it will also be together. Now, the Auphe want revenge. Of course, the heart of the story is still the brothers. Right now, I’m partway through the book.
Niko has always been a necessary backbone for Cal’s waxing and waning moods and emotions, and their relationship is the very definition of loyal, but Niko was never that interesting to me as a side character Wie sehr man manchmal auf andere angewiesen ist, wie sehr man manchmal alleine sein muss. Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, are barely getting by with their preternatural detective agency when the vampire Seamus hires them.
We have heard the same conversations again and again. It was nice to hear Nico’s voice and his perspective on the same issues. Cal has finally grown up some, and Niko gets it, and that in itself drains a lot of the criticism I had of the previous book. So in Deathwish, Cal and Niko are having almost as many personal problems as their usual problems.
Now they want revenge. May 28, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: Nik and Cal’s brotherly love and loyalty were strong in previous books, but you begin to truly get insight into how much they will do for each other.
I had gotten so used to the narrative from Cal’s POV that when Nik gets his turn I sometimes get confused and had to re-read the pages. Promise’s daughter not only thuman trouble with their relationship, turns out she’s also stolen something from a powerful being and he’s headed their way. Niko doesn’t mind Promise being a mother.
It didn’t take Being book 4 in the series, the world building and character development has been done a long time ago. The Auphe are still chasing the brothers too. In the first book they loomed at the high danger when deathwisj Cal is absorbed into their earth’s thurmzn and escapes, and the second follows them to the new city and life.

If I read out of context I’d have no idea who he was, except for the excessive comments about his loyalty to his brother. I can’t get enough of these books and it’s awful. It was interesting seeing Cal and the other characters thorough his eyes. On page he questions who he’d be without taking on the responsibility to raise Cal, if he’d have become as broken as his mother.
I didn’t deathwosh for her “shifting” point of view in this book.
Maybedog rated it it was amazing Shelves: In the short story anthology Wolfsbane and Mistletoe she was featured among other prominent urban fantasy writers like Charlaine Harris, Simon R. Retrieved from ” https: Compared to ddeathwish, it’s a completely different book in quality, coherence and climax.
The Auphe nature wasn’t mine. I suspect for some people it is already past the melodrama line — I have a high tolerance for this sort of angst: Well another book down in this series and I must admit deathwiah time I pick one up I question doing so since Cal Leandros is such a whiney Character hes hard to stand at times. Great book and the first time we get Niko’s point of view. This was as good as the first one. But the Leandros brothers have to do more than they had planned when Seamus turns up dead or un-undead.
Avoiding spoilers can be annoying can’t it The first four books take place in a matter of weeks. Despite all these interesting changes compared to other books I’ve read in the same genre, my interest – while there – will only stay there on an average level. March 3, Imprint: We have been down these very same roads many times now. There are objectively better urban fantasy series out of there but this one will always be my favorite.
A Key, an Egg, an Unfortunate Remark. I really enjoyed this series though the books themselves could have used a little more editing.
