Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Publication Date: May 14, 2009
Versions: paperback, kindle, audio
Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)
Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?
I picked up this book (from borders of course) because everyone seemed to really enjoy it. So I started reading the book, right? And I was like, Yeah! A kick butt girl character that fights monsters-totally unique. And finally a girl character that's stronger than the male. So as my likeness for the book was growing, all of a sudden I hit the middle and it went up in flames. The book couldn't hold my attention anymore and it just got way too "out" there with all the non human creatures and such.
I guess I won't be picking up the sequel but I really enjoyed how different it was. These types of books really aren't my type anyway but I give them a try. Which is probably a good thing, and I'm glad I got to experience this writer because she was so different. And how tired are you of reading about that perfect main character with the perfect looks and the perfect wardrobe-blah. I'm so sick of it and Drew, luckily, wasn't like that at all. So thank you Lili St. Crow for your amazing characters.
Will I reread it?
Nah, but if she comes out with another series, I'll defiantly give it a try.
