The great things about this series for me are Cal's sarcastic personality and the different supernatural world Thurman has crafted so well. I like that Niko and Cal are each other's only family and that they are close and I enjoy the interactions with Robin and Promise.
This book is largely about how close Niko and Cal are. There's a nice little story from their past in the book which Cal thinks shows how much Auphe has always been a part of him but it really just shows how much he loves and is willing to do for his brother. This seemed to be the main message of this book, I thought.
There's an surprising new bad guy in Grimm, but I found other parts of this book pretty predictable. I was disappointed in the throw away mention of a character from the first books but there's always the chance more will be made of this in the next book. Promise doesn't feature much in this one and I did feel like it was lacking a little something without her.

Another excellent book by Rob Thurman, I'm so glad I picked up her first book "Night Life" by chance and decided to give it a try. Love the characters. Love the humor. Love this series. And now I'm waiting patiently to find out what is install for the cynical Cal and company in the next novel.
