Meet the Author

Rob, short for Robyn (yes, he is really a she) Thurman lives in Indiana, land of rolling hills and cows, deer, and wild turkeys. Many, many turkeys. She is also the author of the Cal Leandros Series: Nightlife, Moonshine, Madhouse, and Deathwish; has a story in the anthology Wolfsbane and Mistletoe; and is the author of Trick of the Light, the first book in the Trickster series.

Besides wild, ravenous turkeys, she has a dog (if you don’t have a dog, how do you live?)—one hundred pounds of Siberian husky. He looks like a wolf, has paws the size of a person’s hand, ice blue eyes, teeth out of a Godzilla movies, and the ferocious habit of hiding under the kitchen table and peeing on himself when strangers come by. Fortunately, she has another dog that is a little more invested in keeping the food source alive. By the way, the dogs were adopted from shelters. They were fully grown, already housetrained, and grateful as hell. Think about it next time you’re looking for a Rover or Fluffy.

For updates, teasers, deleted scenes, and various other extras, visit Rob Thurman's website and her LiveJournal.

    Basilisk is the continuation of Chimera. It takes place three years later and is Michael's point of view. I enjoyed this book, as I have all of Rob Thurman's other books, however, I find many of the aspects of the story to be very similar to those in the Cal Leandros series. Disregarding those similarities I found the book to be full of action and well written. I would recommend reading it.

    I loved this book. I love Stephan and Misha so much but this on

    I loved this book. I love Stephan and Misha so much but this one just goes so beyond the first one. Amazing and breathtaking! The way that you see Misha change and grow is phenomenal. Every fan of Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Thriller, Myster or just Action should read this book. It has it all!

    Still lovin' this

    While the 'brothers' are very similiar to Rob Thurman other series with the Leandros brothers, it is dissimiliar enough to be engrossing and believable.

    The back and forth banter between the brothers, the twists and turn and final dramatic conclusion was engrossing.

    I would definitely recommend this series to anyone.
