For the First Time in One Volume...
From furry to fey, shifters to Sidhe, monsters to madmen, and ex-divine to ex-demonic, this collection of supernaturally-spun tales by NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author Rob Thurman is bound by the spilled blood of both family and the most fatal of enemies.
Includes two anthology favorites, as well as an original CAL LEANDROS story that takes you through The Windy City as only a fourteen-year-old half-monster facing a fully human one could.
It's winner take all and life itself is the bet.Biografía del autor:
Rob Thurman has written three series for Penguin Putnam’s imprint ROC Fantasy: The Cal Leandros Novels, The Trickster Novels, and The Chimera Novels. Debut novel Nightlife, was released in 2006. There are now thirteen books to date and Rob is releasing the ninth Cal Leandros Novel in 2014. Outside of series work, All Seeing Eye, a paranormal thriller, was written as a standalone novel, as well as several stories for various anthologies, including the Charlaine Harris & Toni L.P. Kelner Anthology, Wolfsbane and Mistletoe, Courts of the Fey, Carniepunk and Kicking It. Although Rob does not write Young Adult, the first Urban Fantasy book in The Cal Leandros Series—Nightlife—received a 2011 Eliot Rosewater Award Nomination for Excellence in High School Libraries, rather to the author’s bemusement, as Rob would be the first to say the books are not for younger teens. Apparently, the librarians and teens disagree. Rob’s work is dark, non-stop action from beginning to end, rife with purely evil sarcasm as sharp as a switchblade—and probably nearly as illegal. If one shoved the most sarcastic of comedians along with The Shining and Pulp Fiction into a wood-chipper, the result would be what Rob aims to deliver in all novels, but especially in Urban Fantasy—proof that you can have humor, violence, and fear all simultaneously in one kick-ass moment. Rob Thurman lives in rural Indiana—land of endless fields, infinite cows and where dial-up is still the only soul-crushing option. Hang out personally with the author and Rob’s Reaver Army at RobThurman.net—home of Cal and Niko Leandros, The Brothers Korsak, Team Trickster and The Eye of Jackson. But be warned: you may run into Robin Goodfellow there, and nobody is responsible for what a puck may do.
