Strange Angels #1

3 out of 5 Stars
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?
Strange Angels was a little slow for me in the beginning. It starts off explaining what her life was like living with her dad moving from place to place killing all creatures. When one night Dru's dad does not come home human, he has been been turned into a zombie. Dru is forced to kill her father and moves on alone until her friend Graves starts helping her. Graves gets bit by a werewulf and Dru now has to explain about her abilities and how she hunts. While looking for answers about her parents, Dru meets Christophe. Christophe is a dhampire, and he knows all the secrets Dru has been searching for about her parents and her not so human blood. Dru is portrayed as a very strong 16 year old character having to face so many obstacles alone. This makes her an inspiring character, not to mention also kick ass! She knows how to fight and protect herself and others that she cares about. This shows girls are not weak and helpless. I love how Dru and Graves relationship has grown into something more than friendship, even though I like Christophe's character, he's mysterious and is very interested in Dru.
