Review: Moonshine by Rob Thurman

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a nice week-end. The weather is being very nice lately, but the temperatures have definitively cooled down :(

I'm sick :( Stuffy nose and sore throat and perhaps a little bit of fever. The good news is that I don't have a cough, so it should not be the swine flu ^_^; I'm totally blaming my supervisor for this: stress and lack of sleep has weakened me. I loaded up on orange juice yesterday and I've been drinking a lot of water... Hopefully with a good night of sleep, I should feel better tomorrow.

Depressing no?

Onto better news though, here is my review of Moonshine by Rob Thurman. It is over at Breezing Through and my buddy this time is the lovely Hilcia :) You can find the review here. One more book and I'll have reviewed all the books read in a month! Wow, a first for me LOL :)


Moonshine by Rob Thurman
published by ROC Fantasy in March 2007

I was born a monster. Although truthfully, I was only half monster. My mother was human; my father was something... else. Half monster or whole, in the end it didn’t matter. I had my weaknesses, same as anyone else.

And I was facing one of them now.

After saving the world from his fiendish father’s side of the family, Cal Leandros and his stalwart half brother, Niko, have settled down with a new apartment and a new gig – bodyguard and detective work. And in New York City, where preternatural beings talk the streets just like normal folk, business is good.

Their latest case has them going undercover for the Kin, the werewolf Mafia. A low-level Kin boss thinks a rival is setting him for a fall, and wants proof. The place to start is the back room of Moonshine, a gambling club for nonhumans. Cal thinks it’s a simple in-and-out job. But Cal is very, very wrong.

Cal and Niko are being set up themselves - and the people behind it have bites much worse than their barks...


  1. Sorry to hear that you are feeling sick. Plenty of people are coming down with colds and flu it seems.

    Feel better soon!

  2. Awwwww... so sorry you're not feeling well. Load up on the fluids and feel better soon:)

  3. Awe nath, hope you're feeling better. Call in sick if you have to.

  4. I keep seeing these Thurman reviews everywhere and have been avoiding them. Should I be reading these? I didn't read the review at BT because you said it was chock full of spoilers.

  5. Take care of yourself, nath. I hope you feel better soon. ((H))

  6. Seneca - Thanks, Seneca! It seems like it's a bug going around at work... couple of people were sick last week :(

    Lori - That's what I've been doing... Seriously, never went to the bathroom that many times in a morning! LOL :P

    Rosie - If you enjoy urban fantasy and want to read about 2 brothers, I think you should give it a try. I really enjoyed them :)

    Hilcia - Thanks, Hils!

  7. Leslie - Oups, sorry, skip over your comments somehow.

    Well I still came into work, but I get to leave early, so that's good.

  8. Lack of sleep and stress can really bring you down. I hope you feel better soon!

  9. Tabitha - I know. I'm getting better already, so that's good :D Thanks :)
