WW28 book offering : Blackout by Rob Thurman
Page 28, 1st Sentence:
He was also at least forty.
To put that line a bit more in context, here is the next line:
He'd been a full-grown man and full-grown pervert for a long time now.
About Blackout:
I was alone, and I was lost. I didn’t know where I was; I didn’t know who I was. It doesn’t get more lost than that. Knowing what I knew and not knowing anything else at all, why would I want to be in the darkness where monsters hide?

Because killers hide there, too…

Half-human Cal Leandros has always walked a bloody line between keeping his mortal soul free and clear (sort of) and unleashing the horror of his otherworldly heritage. The one thing that’s always saved him is the memory of his brother, Niko, his friends, and those he loves.

Until now.

Cal wakes up on a beach littered with the recently slaughtered remains of a variety of hideous creatures that were obviously looking for trouble. The fact that he was the one doing the slaughtering doesn’t bother him. The fact that he feels like a natural-born killer doesn’t either. What bothers him is that Cal doesn’t remember Cal anymore…

And he’s not sure he cares.

I've never read anything by Rob Thurman before, but I've gotten lots of recommendations from fantasy fans!

And wow! I love your layout. I would ask you how long you've had it, but knowing that I haven't been around in the blogosphere much over the past few months, the answer would probably embarrass me lol. But I'm back to blogging now, so hopefully I'll be dropping in more often!
