Half-human/half-monster Cal Leandros knows that family is a pain. But now that pain belongs to his half-brother, Niko. Niko's shady father is in town, and he needs a big favor. Even worse is the reunion being held by the devious Puck race-including the Leandros' friend, Robin- featuring a lottery that no Puck wants to win.Today I'll be over at Breezing Through with two lovely ladies, Nath from Books, Books and More Books and Leslie from Leslie's Psyche. We are discussing Doubletake, the 7th installment in the Cal Leandros urban fantasy series by Rob Thurman.
As Cal tries to keep both Niko and Robin from paying the ultimate price for their kin, a horrific reminder from Cal's own past arrives to remind him that blood is thicker than water-and that's why it's so much more fun to spill.
Nath, Leslie and I have been reading this series from the beginning. Leslie and I have had the pleasure of taking turns buddy reviewing the books with Nath as the series has progressed. This time all three of us had a great time discussing Doubletake, which turned out to have a bit of a twist that drove the three of us a bit nutty. A warning, please be prepared for a detailed discussion with spoilers galore.
Interestingly enough although all three of us enjoyed this installment, this time my grade was vastly different from the ones awarded by my fellow readers. Why? Check out the review.
