Let me put this right out there; I LOVE this series.
I bought the first two initially on a whim and have had to wait the painful year in between each subsequent book but this wait has been the most worthwhile. Miss Thurman's writing feels like it has grown up over the course of the series and this compliments perfectly how much Cal has grown himself as a character since the first book, Nightlife.
Goodfellow is probably my favourite supporting character of all time and is the prompting for most of the real laugh out loud moments; I especially love the imagery of him taking his un-dead mummified cat in a pet carrier along on a monster hunt in a swamp for the exercise. Normal, but very much not normal.
As expected of this series there are scenes of real tenderness - the relationships between the characters being the real selling point of these books - interspersed with some truly horrifying imagery. The bad guys are always skin crawlingly awful, the good guys can sometimes blur the lines but you always understand why. Their stories are all explained, their pasts sometimes harrowing, their characters completely fleshed out.
I was glad to go back to the story being predominantly narrated by Cal, as the switch between Cal and Niko in the last book sometimes threw me and had me shuffling back a few pages to check who I was supposed to be at the time. Promise is completely absent which might please some readers but I felt she gives Niko a bit more dimension than simply running around after Cal all of the time.
The run up to the end truly upset me and on the last few pages I felt myself more emotionally involved than I probably should have been but I think this is the sign of a good book; you really do care about these boys.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cal and Niko Leandros are hired by Abelia-Roo to recover something which has been stolen from her Romney clan. Oh, and by the way, the stolen item is a coffin which contains The Plague of the World and, it seems, the seals are not completely holding The Plague inside any more. If Cal, Niko, and Robin Goodfellow can't find the person who stole the coffin before the seals break down completely, there will be death on a monumental scale.

I was very glad to see that author Rob Thurman has presented this story from the perspective of Cal, the half human/half Auphe (demon)young man who has now reached the age when he should be considered an adult. But only if his brother Niko will let go long enough for Cal to make some mistakes and learn from them. Ahh, but that's a problem, because when Cal makes a mistake, people - or things - die. The first portion of this book had some seriously laugh out loud moments. I was going to use a quote to illustrate that, but there were so many I decided to just let you read the book for yourself and enjoy them as you come to them. Then slowly this road trip from hell turns in a dark and intense direction. In a previous book Cal and Niko had confronted the Auphe and killed them all. Really? No, not all. But the revelation of that little mystery is part of why this is such a wonderfully written book. By the end of the story I found myself sniffing and tearing up and needing a tissue. As would be expected when dealing with The Plague of the World, there are some seriously dangerous situations our band of happy warriors find themselves involved in. When you add Delilah, Cal's werewolf girlfriend into the mix and then toss in two more characters from previous novels, well, I never knew exactly where we were going next.

Overall, I liked it a lot.

A lot of Cal's inner monologue, in particular, feels very padded this time around -- he'll all too often say the same thing three times in one paragraph using slightly different words, which dilutes and therefore detracts from the humor I'm used to depending on him for. Robin is especially one-note here as well. It's quite the weird reversal when I find myself enjoying Niko's sarcasm more than Cal's. And there are crucial scenes with the wolf brothers that I thought ought to have taken place "on camera" rather than us being told about them later, or through the eyes of a much less involved third party. If the mute brother can narrate his own chapters, he can give us those crucial conversations firsthand. Their story is incredibly moving, but I felt left out for bits of it, as though the impact ought to have been stronger and could easily have been made so. These are small things with large impact that could have been tightened up in the editorial stages.

That said, it's a series. On its own, the book feels somewhat flabby, but as part of the larger narrative, it's a significant step forward plotwise, especially for Cal (the one I'm invested in. I actually don't foresee much growth for Niko or Robin). Cal is evolving as a person, and that slightly more towards "scary and terrifying" than "mature hero guy." So I'm willing to bet that the directions the books take will be gripping ones, and will still merrily go along for the ride.

I liked the relationship between wolf brothers echoing the more-familiar-to-us brotherly relationship between Cal and Niko. (Does the fate of the werewolves foreshadow future happenings for the Leandros brothers? Hmmm.
