Welcome to the Big Apple: there’s a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side—and that’s only the beginning. Of course most humans are oblivious to the preternatural nightlife around them, but Cal Leandros is only half-human.

His father’s dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares—and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal. Why? Cal hasn’t exactly wanted to stick around long enough to find out.

He and his half-brother Niko have managed to stay a step ahead for three years, but now Cal’s dad has found them again. And Cal is about to learn why they want him, why they’ve always wanted him … for he is the key to unleashing their hell on earth. The fate of the human world will be decided in the fight of Cal’s life.

    " This was really a 3.5, maybe a 4. The main reason I rated it down was - perhaps unfairly - because I kept seeing it as an echo of Supernatural, which came out a year before. There were some points where I found it hard to concentrate on the writing, but the concept is interesting and the relationship between Niko and Cal good enough to make me want to read book 2. "

    " If I could give 3.5, I would. Very enjoyable. As others have said, very Supernatural in the brotherly interactions. Not that that's a bad thing. Will check out the next one. "

    " In 'Nightlife' the main character is Caliban (Cal) Leandros and his half brother Niko. They share the same human mother, however Caliban has a Grendel for a father. Grendel is what the brothers call the monsters. And Caliban's father's specific breed of monster is elf. These elves are not pretty and serene in the Lord of the Rings kind of way. They're scary, violent, and have been watching Cal all his life. Several years ago the Grendels finally made a move and kidnapped Caliban and killed their mother. Caliban managed to escape from their world and returned but aged significantly older with no memories of what happened between his kidnapping and escape. They've lived on their own since, dodging any Grendel they see and moving from place to place. Cal has always felt guilty about it because he feels like Niko is sacrificing his life to protect his. Niko is incredibly smart and has honed his body into a slick fighting machine. They're currently living in New York city and have been for a while now. Yet Niko spots a Grendel in the park one day and kills him. Neither brother knows if this is a one-time occurrence or a shadow of things to come. Should they run? Should they stay? Perhaps there are some things that these two brothers can't run away from after all. I definitely agree with reviewers that this book would appeal to fans of the Supernatural tv series. I'd highly recommend it to fans of the show but also to general urban fantasy fans as well. There's enough differences between the show and these books not to feel like it's the same thing though. There were a few issues to me with the writing style but over all it had me glued to the pages. There's lots of action and the plot moved at a good pace, but the relationship between the two brothers is priceless. It completely made this book for me. Niko is just a larger than life character and bounced off of Caliban they make a great pair. I think I'm in love. "
