Strange Angels

Lili St. Crow

Published 2009

293 pages

Rating: A-


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?

My review

So I received this book in the mail and I was pretty excited because I love supernatural books but I had also heard some bad things about the book too. It's pretty much about a girl named Dru Anderson who helps her dad kill creatures of the night, such as: ghosts, poltergeists, vampires, zombies, werewolves and more. But when Dru's dad comes back from a hunt as a zombie, Dru knows that something terrible killed her dad and that now... it's coming for her.

I really liked this book! It was full of action, which obviously I like and there were some parts of the book that actually did creep me out. Right from the beginning, the book had me hooked on what would happen next. And at the end of the book, you'll be begging for more. I also liked how zombies were involved in the book too. It was the first time I had read about zombies and I really enjoyed it. And I also really liked Dru's personality and her sense of humor. She made me laugh a few times and comedy is always a good thing. Oh and you can't forget about the love triangle! Yes, once again, there IS a love triangle! It seems that love triangles are everywhere these days. You have Graves, the somewhat Goth boy who is protective, nice and funny. Then you have Christophe (Chris for short), the sexy half-vampire who is dangerous, strong, witty and also funny. You could fall in love with either of them but I tend to LOVE the bad boys soooo obviously I fell in love with Christophe.

Any bad things to say about the book? Not really. Maybe a few things I could mention. Some things were definitely repeated too much, for example, the color of a person's eyes. And there were some awkward words in the book that didn't fully make sense, in my opinion. I also wish that the werewolves vs. vampires thing would come to an end because frankly, too many books are about that feud.

So to finish, I loved reading this book and I can't wait to read Betrayals. I recommend this book to anyone who loves creepy, action-packed and supernatural books. Actually, I think pretty much anybody could read this.



  1. Hmm Interesting about the Love triangle comment. I thought there wasn't even a competition since Dru seems to rather dread the Dhampire and she is so close to our Graves.

    But that might be just me xD I do have the hots for Christopher though!

  2. Great review! I liked this book a lot. Can't wait to read the next book to see where things go.

  3. Nice review! I can't say I loved the book quite as much as you, but I'm glad you liked it. I prefer Christophe over Graves too. :P Poor Graves.
