In addition to getting into Niko’s head, we also get a lot of backstory on Promise in this book.

Thurman switched to multiple POVs. This book definitely did not disappoint. On page he questions who he’d be without taking on the responsibility to raise Cal, if he’d have become as broken as his mother.

Deathwish is easily the best book since Nightlife. Niko’s chapters give us surprising insights into the ways his mind works, and we learn he and Cal, deep down inside, aren’t so different For the baseball player, see Bob Thurman. tyurman

Characters are well-done – Cal stands out as the loner of the group dragged through life with his brothers support, worried about the darkness inside rlb over the good, appreciating and probably only surviving because of his brothers faith in him.

Niko isn’t quite so bad but he hits one of my other pet peeves. So in Deathwish, Cal and Niko are having almost as many personal problems as their usual problems. I cried, I literally cried, and more than once.

This one actually split perspectives between both brothers in alternating chapters and I really liked it. These just keep getting better.


Too many plotlines that didn’t have to happen at the same time. Another thing about this book is that the narrative’s point of view POV swaps between Nik and Cal from chapter to chapter. I’m so glad a Goodreads friend reviewed one of these books a few weeks ago and reminded me of the series!

Die Charaktere sind vielseitig und unfassbar realistisch gezeichnet. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. And they’re feeling good. Oh, we do indeed know that Robin is a whorish puck.

Quit on page Where’s the point where she draws the line, how does she decide what to reveal and what not? First she lies to him and then her daughter is trying to kill both him and his brother. And although Deathwish feels like it could be an ending of sorts, I see on Thurman’s website a vague reference to “Cal Leandros Books 5, 6, and 7” so woo hoo! Mar 01, Temaris rated it really liked it Shelves: Like the previous instalments in this series this book is full of action, worrying about vastly superior enemies and then trying to work out how to feathwish that advantage mean nothing and put them out for the count.

This series just keeps getting better and better! And I adore the interplay between the two brothers Cal and Nikothey clearly love each other, and Deathwish in particular shows how far they will go to protect each otheryet are snarky and smart alecky to each other deathwieh brothers often are.

Call of the Wilde. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. We have been down these very turman roads many times now. Want to Read saving…. I didn’t care for her “shifting” point of view in this book.


Poor Cal too, but this time it’s Niko’s turn and that was pretty sad. Being book 4 in the series, the world building and character development has been done a long time ago.
