Book Review: Strange Angels

Title: Strange Angels
Author: Lili St. Crow
Series: Strange Angels #1
Published: 2009

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 Thoughts:
I've been wanting to read this book for years! So naturally my expectations was super high before I started the book. So, did this story live up to my expectations? Well, no. Strange Angels definitely had the first-book-in-a-series syndrome, with focus on building Dru's world. But I think this series has potential to be great!

Dru was a tough girl, no doubt about it. And I loved that she wasn't all fight and kill, she had a softer more human side, and she wasn't afraid of crying and showing her emotions.

Overall, a decent book with interesting characters. A good start of a series with potential to be great!

Rating: 3.5 of 5
