Mini Review: Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Title: Strange Angels
Author: Lili St. Crow
Published: May 2009
Source: The Library
Synopsis 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?

Strange Angels reminds me a lot of Vampire Academy. Not because of the content, but in the way that even though the writing isn't the best out there, it was so addictive. I couldn't put it down. The summary on the back makes it seem like Dru is this tough girl who doesn't let anything bother her, and I was happy to find that that wasn't true. She spends the majority of the book crying. After kicking butt of course. She acted in very real ways, which was nice. The plot was fast paced and action/creepy feeling/horror scene packed so you were never bored. I really liked it and I'm definitely getting Betrayals ASAP. 4/5 Cover: 5/5 Captures the creepy-ness and the girl pretty much fits the description of Dru.


  1. Nice review. I've got this on hold at the library. Can't wait to read it.

  2. This sounds great! I love it when you can't put a book down and you get so into the plot.


Your comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, keep them coming!
