Rob Thurman: Madhouse

Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

My brother had spent a lifetime-mine, at least-telling me that I was normal, that I wasn't a monster. With his help, I'd finally realized that as long as I could remain who I was, I could survive what I was. It was only bad genes….

Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, aren't exactly prospering with their preternatural detective agency. Who could have guessed that business would dry up in New York City,
where vampires, trolls, and other creepy crawlies are all over the place?

But now there's a new arrival in the Big Apple. A malevolent evil with ancient powers, dead set on making history with an orgy of blood and murder, is picking off humans like sheep. And for Cal and Niko, this is one paycheck they're going to have to earn… if they live long enough to collect it.

Jó, de nem hozta a várt formát… Bár a végén volt pár elegáns csavar, és kíváncsi vagyok, innen hogyan tovább.

Még mindig bírom. És azt is bírom, hogy azért a nénik is néha tudnak igen akciódús dolgokat alkotni. Nekem néha kicsit sok is. De jó kis érzelmi dráma a végére, egy csöpp függővéggel fűszerezve mindig jó befejezés egy folytatásos regénynek. De valami még kellene a dologba, hogy igazán katartikus legyen…

I slept with a knife under my pillow, a gun under the mattress, and a sword under the bed. If I could have litter‐box‐trained an alligator, I would've had one of those under there as well.

Robin was one helluva fighter, but when it came to running for your life, he had absolutely no equal.

As for demons…open your eyes. Demons are everywhere. They're us.

„ 'Weary the path that does not challenge,' ” he quoted. „Hosea Ballou.”
„ 'I like thing easy,' ” I countered. „Me. Want to write it down? I can repeat it.”
„That won't be necessary. After twenty years I do believe I have it.”

„Happy? I'm happy.” I bared my teeth in a fixed grin. „See? Happy.”
„Gods save us. I haven't seen an expression like that since Medusa went through menopause.”

Niko had obtained a map of the tunnel system from Nushi, memorized it, gone over it with me several times, and then drawn it in permanent ink on the back of my hands and on my forearms. Following that, he'd stuffed the map in my pocket, saying, „In case we're seperated. It's not enough, I fear, but it's the best I can do.” Brothers believe in you, but they also know you. I know east from west, but that was the most I could hope for.
