I read this one because of a review I read on Chelsea‘s blog, The Page Flipper!

Title: Strange Angels
Author: Lili St. Crow

Summary (B& 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?

My Review: I read this book because Chelsea over at The Page Flipper said it was like the TV show Supernatural. And in a way it is. But it's really not. Yes, they have the similar aspect of people fighting the things that go bump in the night and I love that. However, I had a hard time wrenching myself away from the whole Supernatural parts. I found myself having to remind myself “This is NOT Supernatural, so stop comparing it…stop saying they’re doing it wrong!“ or “You use rock salt, jeez!…No, no stop comparing.” I couldn’t do it though. My mind is just to hardwired to that TV show. It's sad that I’m so close minded, but I just can’t help it. I’m going to try to read more of the series, but I’m not sure how far I will get before I will start comparing it again.

Another thing that irked me was that the main character Dru just would not shut up. I know that sounds weird, but as readers we KNOW what happened to her father (as does she so its not like there’s any irony to that) and the author didn’t need to say it on every single page! Oh and the fact that I could not for the life of me figure out why the book was called Strange Angels. I just don’t understand it at all. Other than that it was an ok book.
