Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Title: Strange Angels
Author: Lili St. Crow
Published: 2009
Pages: 293
Rating: 4/5
Synopsis: 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?

Review: It had been a really long time that I had been wanting to read this book so when I finally got the chance to read it I was really happy.

The story starts off with Dru with her dad. After she goes to school and sees that her dad is still not home she starts to get nervous. Later when she hears someone trying to get inside her house she realizes that it's her dad, only he's a zombie. Soon after Dru is forced to take a course of action when she's left alone in the world. She uses everything that she knows to survive but she knows that she will need a bit of help.

Dru was a great character! She was left alone and had to find a way to stay alive while all these mean things kept coming at her. She managed to kill them eve if it wasn't in the best way and that's something that I loved. She didn't want to depend on anyone to get her out of things and always took the lead when she needed to. Dru was a strong character that I wish I will see in future books! Plus, I want to see more about her powers!

And what can I say about Graves and Christophe? Graves wasn't the superhero that we commonly see in a lot of YA books. Despite this he should that he was brave and that he wouldn't give up just because he was scared of something. And Christophe happened to be the opposite. He showed up to save the day but i think he was a bit creepy at the beginning.

Now that I've read this book I really want to read the second. I want to see what happens next and how things turn out to be. I'm happy that I won't have to wait for the next book to come out! =) So glad that it turned out to be a good book!
