About the Author
Rob, short for Robyn (yes, he is really a she) Thurman lives in Indiana, land of rolling hills and cows, deer, and wild turkeys. Many, many turkeys. She is also the author of the Cal Leandros Series: Nightlife, Moonshine, Madhouse, and Deathwish; has a story in the anthology Wolfsbane and Mistletoe; and is the author of Trick of the Light, the first book in the Trickster series.
Besides wild, ravenous turkeys, she has a dog (if you don't have a dog, how do you live?)--one hundred pounds of Siberian husky. He looks like a wolf, has paws the size of a person's hand, ice blue eyes, teeth out of a Godzilla movies, and the ferocious habit of hiding under the kitchen table and peeing on himself when strangers come by. Fortunately, she has another dog that is a little more invested in keeping the food source alive. By the way, the dogs were adopted from shelters. They were fully grown, already housetrained, and grateful as hell. Think about it next time you're looking for a Rover or Fluffy.

This book is part of a series and for maximum enjoyment they should be read in order.
The series keeps on getting better :)
Our protagonist wakes up with amnesia - and a pile of dead monsters. The fact that he can deal with getting rid of the evidence without really thinking about it tells him he may, indeed, have a less than normal lifestyle - if he could only remember more of it. The view of the Cal that might have been is well thought out, and the conflict between his sporadically returning memories and mannerisms and his brothers wish for him to be 'happy' - whatever that is - is lovely. Likewise the decision that a happy Cal is not actually in Nico's best interest; I'm not ashamed to admit that I sniffled a bit :)
If you have read the other books in the series, you absolutely want to read this. If you haven't read the other books - well, what are you waiting for?
'Blackout' has got to be the best book in this series so far. Cal has amnesia and it brings a new twist to the tale. I find these kinds of books - action based fantasy - have a tendency to get a bit formulaic, so this one was a real surprise for me. The plot wasn't predictable and there's a lot of humour in the situations Cal gets himself into while he's trying to figure out who he is.
