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?



Bebetrayalstrayals  (discription by Amazon):   She’s no angel… Poor Dru Anderson. Her parents are long gone, her best friend is a werewolf, and she’s just learned that the blood flowing through her veins isn’t entirely human. (So what else is new?)  Now Dru is stuck at a secret New England Schola for other teens like her, and there’s a big problem—she’s the only girl in the place. A school full of cute boys wouldn’t be so bad, but Dru’s killer instinct says that one of them wants her dead. And with all eyes on her, discovering a traitor within the Order could mean a lot more than social suicide…  Can Dru survive long enough to find out who has betrayed her trust—and maybe even her heart?



My Thoughts
Green swirlsI’m going to do both of these at the same time as I read them back to back and.. well, I just want to.

The books were interesting and I enjoyed them and I will read the next one that comes out (Jealousy) but there was something lacking for me and I can’t quite put my finger on it.

The characters are good, but not great.  The storyline is again good but not fantastic and gripping.  Very different and unique though.  There are a lot of unanswered questions, but again, that goes with the territory when you’re reading a “series”.  You have to be left with some questions to pique your interest to move onto the next one, which I will.  It was interesting enough for that for sure, but just not wonderful.
Maybe I’m just not being fair because I’ve read so many great books recently that this one falls a little short in comparison.    Still, having said all of this, I think people should read it if you’re into vampires, werewolves and the underworld.
