Mom? Long Gone
Me? Well, That's the Scary Part
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?
While at the mall, family-less Graves befriends Dru and, while trying to help her, Dru is bitten by a werewolf. To protect her comes a half-vampire Christophe. He claims that Dru is more important than she ever could have imagined. Dru doesn't know what to believe. Who is he and what side is he on? And who else is hunting Dru? And why? The Real world is a frightening place!
I have mixed feelings about this book. It's greatness was on and off. I felt like most of the ideas where recycled from other literature. On many aspects, I felt like it fell flat. Don't get me wrong, the plot is intriguing and of interest to the reader, but some parts of this book were extra.
Crow gets into Dru's mind and makes readers want more. It was a roller coaster of events full of drama, action, and adventure. This made me love the book. Although, some parts caused confusion as the story moved made me lose interest. The action does not last all throughout the book, which disappointed me. Some parts of gruesome and distracting, that turned me off.
Overall, it was a full of trill, well developed, action packed, full of mystery, and suspense that I want more of in the sequel Betrayals. From reading Strange Angels, I can see potential in the series. Without looking at its defects it was a great and trilling story!
