Deathwish by Rob Thurman : Book Review

Cal has finally grown up some, and Niko gets it, and that in itself drains a lot of the criticism I had of the previous book.

I hope the author sticks with it, that she continues writing the book from both the brothers’ POV, it’s much more interesting, especially in situations where Cal turns Auphe raving mad. This could easily have been two books. I like Delilah better anyway.

A lot of authors ruin characters by changing to their point of view — Nik’s read like Thurman wrote the chapter from Cal’s point of view first, yhurman then rewrote it for Nik without changing anything but the thoughts and perspective of the character.

Cal is half Auphe, a ‘monster’ race from another dimension and his big brother Niko has been his protector his whole life.

However I was mildly surprised to say the least that Gob appeared to be less whiney in this book by quite a large margin, and more of his snarky attitude came through than anything else which I can live deatbwish and enjoy.

Rob Thurman and Trick of the Light”. We have heard the same conversations again and again. When Niko remembers Sophia handing baby Cal to him, when Niko remembers the days before the nightmare, when Cal struggles to ask Niko to let them go, when Cal erases his tattoo, when Niko thinks Cal die, when Cal writes a note to help Niko deals with his nightmare For those who need plot and stuff, the last book ended with the Auphe reappearing and homing in on Nik and Cal.

I loved that he was swearing in Greek I am from Greece and I have to tell you that he knew what he was talking about! The Swords of Haven.

The truth is, they start the life together and if they have to leave the world, it will also be together. It just tells you that this and that happened. But harder thurma was protecting Cal from his monster father’s relatives.
