YA Review: Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) by Lili St. Crow

This book is suitable for Young Adult readers!!!
Goodread summary:
In Strange Angels, 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?

I love reading series but first books are always hard to read. The beginning is often messy, and you could get lost in the story. This was the case with this one.
I have first books because, I don't know anything. No background, no information only a scene with unknown character. All you're left to do is read along and hope, things clear up sooner.
In Strange angels we get to meet Dru, while she was in class. No idea about her world and her way of life. In that first few chapters though things became clearer and then it all went to hell for Dru.
Usually it's not this early in the story when the main character would have to face something hard, but Dru had to face the world on her own pretty quickly and she had to go through some pretty awful stuff. It sucked to be her.
Her dad thought her well and all, she knew the basics of what she had to do but she wasn't prepared for what happened. In a day, everything went to hell and she was left to fend for herself and her new friend Graves.
It's strange how quickly these two had to learn to deal with each-other. Not that they had a choice if they wanted to survive but it was still impressive.
Dru also had to face the fact that she was pretty much in the dark about the most important things that involved her. When Christophe came along, he had a lot to teach Dru and it was a pretty interesting to watch these two communicate.
Dru Anderson is not a girl that trusts people easily so when Chris showed up and he knew so much more than she did, she had a hard time letting him in and trusting him but their relationship is far from done so there's a lot more to come.
I really liked this one. It was kind of original and it has a new take on the whole vampire-werewolf world and it was a very interesting read. I originally read it a while back but I'm re-reading it now and I still find it interesting.
So yeah, I really liked this one and I would love to read book two.

 I give it:
