I was alone, and I was lost. I didn't know where I was; I didn't know who I was. It doesn't get more lost than that. Knowing what I knew and not knowing anything else at all, why would I want to be in the darkness where monsters hide?

Because killers hide there too . . .

Half-human Cal Leandros has always walked a bloody line between keeping his mortal soul free and clear (sort of) and unleashing the horror of his otherworldly heritage. The one thing that's always saved him is the memory of his brother, Niko, his friends, and those he loves. Until now.

Cal wakes up on a beach littered with the recently slaughtered remains of a variety of hideous creatures that were obviously looking for trouble. The fact that he is the one who did the slaughtering doesn't bother him. The fact that he feels like a natural-born killer doesn't either. What bothers Cal is that he doesn't remember Cal anymore . . . and he's not sure he cares.

Humourous and well-scripted; made me re-read some thing in appreciation. Niko comes across as far less irritatingly righteous and perfect. A little less angst made for a fun read.

The latest in the Cal Leandros series. Rob Thurman has created a lovely blend of modern day America with a paranormal twist. The monsters are alternately scary and humorous. Welcome comic relief comes in the form of a horny satyr, Robin Goodfellow. I love this series, and Ms. Thurman keeps throwin new curve balls at poor Cal.

I love this series so much. "Blackout" was an improvement from "Roadkill", but I still missed seeing the story from Niko's point of view. If you love urban fantasy with a healthy side of snark, this series is for you.
