The old question of nature vs. nurture is on display in Thurman’s amazing new Cal Leandros novel. Thurman truly hits one out of the park with this disturbing tale of self-discovery, packed with macabre menace.

Synopsis

When half-human Cal Leandros wakes up on a beach littered with the slaughtered remains if a variety of hideous creatures, he's not that concerned. In fact, he can't remember anything-including who he is.

And that's just the way his deadly enemies like it...
 

About Rob Thurman

See more books from this Author
Rob, short for Robyn (yes, he is really a she) Thurman lives in Indiana, land of rolling hills and cows, deer, and wild turkeys. Many, many turkeys. She is also the author of the Cal Leandros Series: Nightlife, Moonshine, Madhouse, and Deathwish; has a story in the anthology Wolfsbane and Mistletoe; and is the author of Trick of the Light, the first book in the Trickster series. Besides wild, ravenous turkeys, she has a dog (if you don't have a dog, how do you live?)-one hundred pounds of Siberian husky. He looks like a wolf, has paws the size of a person's hand, ice blue eyes, teeth out of a Godzilla movies, and the ferocious habit of hiding under the kitchen table and peeing on himself when strangers come by. Fortunately, she has another dog that is a little more invested in keeping the food source alive. By the way, the dogs were adopted from shelters. They were fully grown, already housetrained, and grateful as hell. Think about it next time you're looking for a Rover or Fluffy.

Above average

Still, although the story lacks Rob Thurman’s usual spark of genius it is enjoyable enough to easily while away the hours of a lazy summer afternoon.

Blackout is definitely not what you expect out of a Cal book, but it’s still worth the read. ...Cal has to decide what’s more important, being a good person or being a good brother.
