“No author on the face of the planet writes the connection between siblings as well as Rob. And frankly, her ability to make the characters come to life is nothing short of amazing. Her stories are filled with snark and emotion – her plots exciting and action packed. I want to live in her brain.” -From Karen F. on Shefari
“Thurman writes great action sequences and the chases and escapes pulled off by Stefan read like an action movie.” –Bethany the WordNerd [on CHIMERA]
“Rob Thurman’s new book BASILISK is out in stores and needs to be bought ASAP. If you’re not convinced it’s the book for you then you obviously don’t like gun-wielding ferrets and THAT…is a serious personal problem.” -Cristina L. Facebook Status Update
“CHIMERA by Rob Thurman has brothers, very bad villains, really cool guns, and a ferret. What more could a girl want in a standby, fill-in boyfriend [aka Cal Leandros]? No, I can’t think of anything else either.” -Jennifer, Brewed Bohemian
BASILISK includes Rob’s brilliant humor with Godzilla the ferret. (“Guns don’t kill people. Ferrets do”) I laughed so much at parts I had tears in my eyes. I also had tears at some of the more heartbreaking moments between the brothers. This book is epic! Worth the painful wait! And is overall f**king amazing!!!! Long Live the Korask Brothers!! -Nikki’s BASILISK Review on GoodReads
