moonshine lives up

Moonshine was a great great read. I loved it just as much as the first book, which is saying a lot. Love the relationship between the two brothers Cal and Niko. I love Cal's angst and Niko's strength. They are a great team. In the first book, Nightlife, Cal was possessed for most of the story. I really missed his sarcasm, his humor, and his love for his brother. Most of the story was told through the perspective of the creature who had possessed him. In Moonshine, it's all Cal all the time and I totally loved it. Thurman makes great characters and great relationships between them. Exciting plot, spine tingling peril, twists and turns, and a lot of what goes bump in the night. Very cool read.
"I was born a monster. No big deal, right? Monsters were everywhere in this world. I’m not talking your sweaty pedophile with twitching fingers or your serial killer with a cold and silent harem buried in his crawlspace. No, I’m talking about the real deal. Creatures that had scuttled across the surface of this world when the air was sulfuric acid and the nighttime moon all but blocked out the sky. Scales and fangs, blood that doubled as venom, minds and bodies twisted in concert, dark legends come to life. These legends had always been a reality, but refused to register on modern human eyes. Monsters, they existed all right, and they were legion, so what was one more? " buy it!
