Review #96: Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Strange Angels is the first in the Strange Angels series by Lili St. Crow. Another book getting the Goodreads treatment: 

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?

This was a pretty damn good book. Admittedly, the writing as a bit painful at times, but overall I loved this book. The pacing was excellent, well written. It took a bit to get into this book, but once I did it was a hell of a ride.

Dru was such a badass chick. Due to her past, she was a bit hard getting to know, but I hope in the next book she opens up a bit more. Hands down my favorite character had to be Graves. He was hilarious, yet also so sweet and caring. He genuinely cared for Dru, wanted to help and protect her. I honest to god fell in love with him, despite the fact that he's a fictional character who will never, ever exist :(. Team Graves all the way baby! Christophe (sp?) felt like the typical pent up love interest, and I hope he evolves in the second book, because that trope gets old real quick.

Like I said, I had an issue with St. Crow's writing at first, but I got past it. I also had an issue with the lackluster world-building. I hope she goes further in-depth into this supernatural world in the second book.

I'll next be reviewing Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

Until next time, viva la literature!
