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 stalk 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 up for a fall, and wants proof. The place to start is the back room of Moonshine, a gambling club for non-humans. Cal thinks it's a simple in-and-out job. But Cal is very, very wrong.

Rob Thurman: Moonshine

Nem tudom, hogy jó-e vagy sem. Azt tudom, hogy folyton ott volt valami a tudatom mélyén, hogy mikor végzek már a napi teendőkkel, hogy olvashassam; azt tudom, hogy annak ellenére, hogy kényszerítettem magam, hogy lassan olvassam, képtelen voltam rá és azt is tudom most már, hogy nem is olyan rossz az első könyv, csak a fordítása tűzrevaló.

For months after I'd reappeared, I'd slept under the bed, a tightly wedged fetal ball with a knife in hand and nightmares that were never remembered in the light of day.


„I need you to talk to her. See what you can find out.”
„I see.” He replaced the glasses. "You want to use me. You want me to be a gigolo… to whore
myself for your convenience."
„Pretty much,” I admitted without compunction.
He laid an arm along the back of the bench and gave a grin birthed in vice. „Who could say no to that?”


And if Niko wanted to photocopy the picture and blurb about our current baddie and pin it to my jacket, I actually might read it on the ride over. Or I might finish the latest naughty women-in-prison paperback instead. You just never knew.

„You don't actually believe in Gypsy curses, do you?” I asked with a faint overlay of scorn.
Green eyes narrowed on me with impatience. „Of course not. I, an immortal creature, am only standing here with a vampire, a half Auphe, and a walking talking wolf. Why would I possibly believe in something as ludicrous as a Gypsy curse?” He rubbed the heel of both hands over tired eyes and went on to snap, „And then there's that entire year I spent impotent thanks to one.”
