"This was an amazing start to the series and had me gripped from start to finish"
The Real World is a scary place full of monsters that Dru
Anderson knows way too much about. Sixteen-years-old and an
orphan, she is a tough girl who has taken down her fair
share of bad guys. She may be armed and dangerous but she
needs someone to trust. Someone who can help her because
she always had her dad but now she has nobody.
She has always been strange but now stranger things are
happening. Always travelling from one place to another with
her father to hunt the things that go bump in the night.
Dru hasn't had a chance to fit in anywhere and it doesn't
look like this new place is going to be any different.
Alone and frightened, Dru is going to have to be strong and
use all her training she learnt to hunt to get away from
town and from the things that have decided to hunt her
right back. What are the chances that Dru will survive to
see her next birthday? Or even the next day? Not high.
We all know Lili St. Crow (nice new way of writing the name
by the way!) and we all know that young adult novels are
all the rage these days. Well thank god there is no age
limit on reading the new rush of teen novels because they
are all turning out to be amazing.
Strange Angels is the start of a new series and one
that I am definitely following. This was an amazing start
to the series and had me gripped from start to finish. If
you like Zoey and The House of the Night series by P.C &
Kristen Cast then you will love this dark, young adult
paranormal urban fantasy with the hunter Dru. Oh and if you
like the TV show Supernatural you will see alot of
similarities that will make the summer break from the show
a little easier to handle.
Luckily the wait for the second book in this series isn't a
long one. Betrayals is due out in November and I am off to
add it to my pre-order wishlist so I don't forget!
