Strange Angels - Lili St. Crow
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?
Characters: All of the characters are very distinct and have their own personalities, and I really enjoyed that. There were only three main characters for a majority of the book, but you find yourself not getting tired with them. You find yourself growing attached to them, like they are your new best friends, and you need to know how their story will end.
Plot: The plot was very original. I have never read anything like it. Lili St. Crow did a wonderful job with making up her own world and own rules that are different from anything I've ever read in fantasy. I cannot wait for the sequel to come out!
Wow Factor: Very wowed. It's definitely highly recommended from me.
