Warrior Caleb arrives in Ireland, bearing Marius’ gifts to the O'Hagan family, as well as to help search for the kidnapped vampires. Upon his arrival, Caleb is assaulted by the sweet smell of his mates, identical twins Liam and Lorcan O'Hagan. This is just the beginning of the journey for Caleb, as revelations of his heritage are exposed.

A Caleb Footlong is the second book in The O'Hagan Way series. The plot is emotional, in addition to being heartwarming. The characters are interesting. Caleb grew up in an orphanage, abused by the human nuns because of his markings. No one knew Caleb’s last name or anything about where he came from. Rescued as a teenager, Caleb was given a home with the Marius family, who recognized that Caleb was a vampire warrior like them. Because of his mistreatment at the hands of the humans, Caleb suffers from panic attacks when stressed; otherwise Caleb has a good natured cocky attitude with his friends. Caleb’s only aspiration is to have a family of his own.

Liam is affectionately assertive while Lorcan is quietly compassionate. The twins want nothing more than to touch their mate, Caleb as well as strengthen their bond. Joyee Flynn’s A Caleb Footlong is a tender and enjoyable saga.
