Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Released: May 14, 2009
Publisher: Razorbill
Rated: YA

Dad? Zombie.
Mom? Long gone.
Me? Well, that's the scary part.

The Real World is a frightening place. Just ask sixteen-year-old orphan, Dru Anderson, a tough girl who has taken down her fair share of bad guys. She's armed, dangerous, and ready to kill first and ask questions later. So it's gonna take her a while to figure out who she can trust . . .

Dru Anderson has been "strange" for as long as she can remember, traveling from town to town with her father to hunt the things that go bump in the night. It's a weird life, but a good one--until it all explodes in an icy, broken-down Dakota town, when a hungry zombie busts through her kitchen door. Alone, terrified, and trapped, Dru's going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. The monsters have decided to hunt back--and this time, Dru's on their menu. Chances of survival? Slim to none.

If she can't last until sunup, it's game over . . .


What I thought: 

What a novel. Not much for the happy moments, I spent most of this novel on the verge of tears, even though we barely get to meet Dru's father. It was well written, but something about Dru's personality seemed off for a teen.

This book grabbed me right away and I enjoyed the story. I was hoping for a bit more on the romance side, but I'd say this one is more on the urban fantasy side than romance.

There was a bit more language in this than I expected for a YA novel, although it didn't take away from the story, just throwing that out there for parents.

I gave it 4 stars!
