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.

Playtime…

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.

Almost.

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…and pay…and pay.…

good series - Rob Thurman is humorous writer, and this series is just as humorous as it is scifi.

The most recent book in this series of urban fantasy, Slashback does not disappoint! I really enjoyed the two different pov's and brotherly goodness, as well as having a wonderful nemesis that was so powerful it kept me wondering through the whole book as to whether they could defeat it.
Because it has a back-story that runs at the same time as a current one, you get to learn more about young Niko and Cal, so if you haven't read the other books this is still good as a stand-alone - mostly.
Very enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
