Review: Strange Angels - Lili St. Crow


Title: Strange Angels
Author: Lili St. Crow
Released: May 14th 2009
Published by: Razorbill
Pages: 293

Summary from Goodreads:
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 this book up randomly. I had no idea what to really expect. Sadly, it was not one of my favorites. I couldn't relate to Dru at all. I also had a hard time getting through the book because it was very slow moving. There was so much of the dialogue that just didn't seem like characters of that age would speak like that. The climax of the book was anticlimactic. It took almost the entire book to actually have something happening & then it just ended. Nothing was really resolved.

I did love Dru's Dad. I loved their relationship. I loved how she always heard things he's said in her head as clearly as if he was standing next to her saying it. I also really liked Graves. He was a character who seemed to do & say things I would expect from someone like him.

I am going to read the next book in the series. Hopefully I'll like it a little better.
