I stopped and let them circle me, first because it was intriguing and, second, because, honestly, what could they do? Only knives, but all armed, and that made them even more interesting. Interesting. Fun.
Taking on bloodthirsty supernatural monsters is how Caliban and Niko Leandros make a living. But years ago — before they became a force to be reckoned with — the brothers were almost victims of a very human serial killer.
Unfortunately for them, that particular depraved killer was working as apprentice to a creature far more malevolent — the legendary Spring-heeled Jack. He’s just hit town. He hasn’t forgotten what The Leandros Brothers did to his murderous protégé. He hasn’t forgotten what they owe him.
And now they are going to pay…
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cal Leandros novels comes a bold new supernatural thriller.
Picking up a small pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead—murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well—but the shoe itself told him so.
Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind him and found a semblance of peace.
That is, until the government blackmails him. Helping the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything Jackson knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
And while change is constant…
It’s never for the better.

Half-human/half-monster Cal Leandros knows that family is a pain. But now that pain belongs to his half-brother, Niko. Niko’s shady father is in town, and he needs a big favor. Even worse is the reunion being held by the devious Puck race – including the Leandros’ friend, Robin- featuring a lottery that no Puck wants to win.
As Cal tries to keep both Niko and Robin from paying the ultimate price for their kin, a horrific reminder from Cal’s own past arrives to remind him that blood is thicker than water…
And that’s why it’s so much more fun to spill.
