Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

From Amazon: Dru Anderson: Night Hunter. Knife Wielder. Heart Breaker. Dru can sense evil, which helps when she and her Dad are tracking down ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional reanimated corpse. It's a dangerous life, but it's the only one she knows. Then Dru's dad turns up dead and she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a deadly game where every move she makes could be her last. Dru is more special than she realizes - and whatever killed her dad could be coming for her next. Can Dru stay alive long enough to fall for one - or both - of the guys hungry for her affections? Find out in the heart-stopping first book in a thrilling series.

I had high expectations for this and although it didn't quite live up to them it was still really good. It started a bit slow but gathered speed a third of the way through and as soon as Christophe was introduced it galloped to the end. I really like the world that was created here. There was some really good mythology behind the story that held my interest and the characters were well created. Graves was great in an adorable puppy kind of way and the banter between him and Dru was one of my favourite aspects of the story. I really liked Dru also, more so towards the end when she started to get stronger, and loved Christophe. I found him very intriguing. I found myself gripped by the action scenes in the book and the author created some standout scenes that really set the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Overall, I really enjoyed it and am really looking forward to the next installment.

I really liked this book. Good review. I'm also looking forward to the next one - it's due out in November but I'm pretty sure I'm going to pre-order it :)
