Format: Mass Market Paperback
Following the events in the previous book Nightlife, Niko and Cal have settled down in New York City. In partnership with Promise, they now have their own investigative/security firm and are about to be thrust into the world of the Kin (the supernatural/werewolf mafia).

Once again the story is told by Cal, the younger half human / half 'monster' brother, who turns his cynical eye on both himself and those around him. As with Nightlife I found the story slowly draws you in without you being aware of it. After a slightly awkward start (where the events of the previous book are recapped) you're pulled back into the dark urban fantasy world of the Leandros brothers. It is still the relationship between the siblings and their friends (and enemies) that make this series such a joy to read. Rob Thurman has a great knack for making her characters come alive on the page.

I feel that Moonshine is an improvement over Nightlife ( I would recommend you read the first book before coming to this one). Cal as a character works much better when he is interacting with others, and thankfully there is no unavoidable change in protagonist behaviour in this book. We get to see much more of Cal and Niko's relationship and how they were (and still are) affected by the Auphe.

Robin Goodfellow has a much larger part in this story, which I was very happy about. His quickfire wit and sarcastic humor make the dialogue sparkle whenever he is present on the page. Hopefully he will continue to play a major role in the series. Promise and George also return, and their deepening relationships with the brothers are one of the main threads of the story. Rafferty (the healer from Nightlife) is mentioned very briefly, and I hope this intriguing snippet will be followed up in a forthcoming book.

After reading Nightlife (Cal Leandros book 1) I thought Rob Thurman was my new favourite author. After reading Moonshine, I was sure of it.

The brothers Niko and Cal and back in this dark urban fantasy full of their usual sharp wit and dark humour.

'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.

Cal and Niko are being set up themselves-and the people behind it have a bite much worse than their bark...'

The second in the series and only getting better. The characters are established; Ms Thurman really seems to know her boys and understand where they are coming from. Their relationship is rock solid but without her needing to explain this; it's there in the dialogue, the simple interaction between the two and it's a treat for those of you who like their characters to actually feel like people you care about. The story itself barely lets up for more than two seconds at a time; it's fast paced and the action isn't ever very far away. There's some serious emotion in here as well, all rolled up in a great package. Goodfellow is a particular favourite of mine and despite the fact that Promise isn't one of my all time favourites, she certainly adds new levels to the boys so I can't be too mad at her. I've said it before and I'll say it again; this series is hugely overrated. I've been pushing it on my friends, you should try it too.

I came across Rob Thurmans first Leandros book a week ago and have now read the first two and am ordering the third. I love these books, they are well written, the characters are properly considered and developed and not one person in these books could possibly, even by accident, be described as "sassy" which after a while becomes like fresh air in urban fantasy. It's rare and wonderful to find fantasy novels where the only thing you are asked to suspend your deisbelief about is the supernatural, often I end up feeling that a key character has behaved in a way that just doesn't fit with what they have done the other 99 times out of the 100, not so with Rob Thurman. Honestly, if you like a well written, entertaining story this is for you.
