I agree...you will love them!

I just finished Deathwish. My goodness, Rob Thurman is a brilliant, BRILLIANT, writer. Deathwish pulled and tugged at my heart on so many levels. The loyalty Cal and Niko have for one another...you just cant touch that. I cant wait for Roadkill. Rob Thurman has the front cover posted on her journal page. Its one of the best covers so far. Definitely typical Cal.  ;)

I read Trick of the Light and was not wildly impressed. I enjoyed it and will read more, if there is more, but it's not a must buy.

I did like the ending. I completely did not see it coming coming. Well, the partner thign was telegraphed from the very beginning, but everythign else was a surprise. I liked it, once I had a chance to think about it and it's what convinced me to read a second book, if there is one.

The ending is what really got me.  Didn't expect some of it.  I want to re-read but the person who borrowed it for his wife went on vacation for what seems like months (3 weeks so far).

I know.   :-'   I miss my oh-so-snarky guys.

I hope she continues to use Niko as a viewpoint character as well as Cal, it definitely improved Deathwish. I only finished the last book a couple of weeks ago and I'm already itchy for the next one. I usually don't care too much for snarky characters but Cal does it so well I can't help but enjoy.  ;D

Well, he's snarky, but it's also fascinating to watch him grow emotionally.  He's maturing, and opening up to people besides Niko, and he really tries to do the right thing.  So, it's more than just empty snark (which can be entertaining, but wears thin after a while), if that makes sense.

Cal, maturing? Well, there's room enough on that front for a long series  LOL

George is not exactly helping in that regard with her 'everything happens as it should' approach to life. I liked her a lot at first but I am coming to agree with Niko, you can't really trust someone who sees herself as having a Calling.

Still, jumping into bed with the hot werewolf chick was not exactly a brilliant and noble way of handling things. It was, however a very twenty-year-old-guy thing to do.
