REVIEW: Roadkill by Rob Thurman

New from the national bestselling author of Deathwish

It's time to lock, load, and hit the road...

Once, while half-human Cal Leandros and his brother Niko were working on a case, an ancient gypsy queen gave them a good old-fashioned backstabbing. Now, just as their P.I. business hits a slow patch, the old crone shows up with a job.

She wants them to find a stolen coffin that contains a blight that makes the Black Death seem like a fond memory. But the thief has already left town, so the Leandros brothers are going on the road. And if they're very, very lucky, there might even be a return trip...

OMG CAL OM NOM NOM. Okay, now that I've gotten that over with, I must tell you that, with Cal, you just can't go wrong. I thought I wouldn't like this book as much as the others, since it's partially narrated by Catch, a.k.a., the biggest loser on earth, but he actually kind of grew on me. Cal's chapters were much longer than Catcher's, anyways, so it wasn't a big deal.

Niko and Robin were as sexy and hilarious and wonderful as ever, and while Ishiah wasn't really in this book, the conversations Robin had on the phone with him were simply beautiful.

***Mild spoiler for previous books (highlight to read)***

Robin and Ishiah are the greatest couple ever. I kind of love them.

***End spoiler***

AND THEY LEFT PROMISE AT HOME. It doesn't get much better than that, guys.

The next book comes out soon, and EVERYONE MUST BUY IT IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE OMG IT IS SOOOO GOOD. And the EPILOGUE. The epilogue is just made of win, but kind of sad and terrible and wonderful. You can't wait to read it, just so you know.
