Deathwish by Rob Thurman is the fourth book to the Cal and Niko Leandros series following Nightlife, Moonshine, and Madhouse. Half-human Cal and Niko Leandros, the main characters in the series, continue their story of dealing with mythical beings with new problems in New York City. The brothers are yet again faced with the threat of their monster heritage, the Auphe (elf family), who are bloodthirsty for revenge. Worse still is the mystery surrounding their newest client, a vampire named Seamus, who was killed before the brothers could find out the identity of Seamus' stalker. This story, along with the past books, is a mysterious urban fantasy filled with twists.

This book has an awesome storyline and describes each page with detail. The storyline makes more sense, however if the previous three books are read first. Deathwish also has mature language and some disturbing details and therefore, is more for young adults. The storyline is very captivating overall. Deathwishs' genre is fantasy, mystery, and a bit of horror.

Note: Mature language and some disturbing details.
