Fantasy. Fiction. HTML:

In New York, there's a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, but Cal Leandros is only half-human. His father's dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares-and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal.

He and his half-brother Niko have managed to stay a step ahead for three years, but now Cal's dad has found them again. And Cal is about to learn why they want him, why they've always wanted him...

    The Demon's Lexicon de Sarah Rees Brennan (Usuari anònim, lquilter)
    lquilter: Readers of either the Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman, and the Demon's Lexicon trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan, will find much to enjoy in both series -- both of which likely would appeal to fans of "Supernatural". Both series of books feature a pair of brothers, essentially orphaned, with traumatic parental relationships, and one especially sought after by a demonic race; and a lot of angst and sarcastic quippiness. Of the two series, the Brennan series has a much more YA vibe, albeit an older YA vibe; and the Thurman series has a more urban fantasy for adults vibe.… (més)

OK, I love the premise here (the bond between the two brothers is very cool). I have no problem with the snarky voice of the first-person narrator. Sure, it is a bit of a cliché, but an enjoyable one. However, this book just was not very well-written. It's not bad, but not very good either. I did not feel this one managed to transcend the boundaries of the urban fantasy genre to appeal to the general population. It got better in the second half, when the pace of the story became fast.

Was waiting for a hook to keep me interested in and it just never was there. Once I finished there really is no draw to pick up the second book. Characters felt one dimensional and throw away to fill a role for a chapter or two. ( )

It was ok. The 2nd half was better than the first. I felt some of the banter was forced and that some of the "I am monster" message got old. I will probably give the 2nd book a chance and see where it goes. Butcher, Green, Briggs, F. Paul Wilson all do it better. ( )

Loved this first book in the Cal Leandros series! I'll be recommending this to all my friends who are Jim Butcher or Supernatural fans. The brothers are great, and I sure hope Robin Goodfellow will be such a prominent character in the other books. Good stuff. ( )

I am in love.... with this writing!!! I simply could not put this book down. Now I am a bit particular when it comes to urban fantasy and truth-to-tell had yet to read one written by a male author other than Butcher. Butcher is amazing but Thurman? Just plain awesome. I liked his characters and I loved his twists on "classic" monsters (aka trolls elves ect) and adored his sense of humor.

So if you want something a little different than your so-called butt-kicking strong female lead (which few can actually pull off imho), give this series a try. ( )
