Series of the Week: Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Each Sunday I will be highlighting a series that I have been wanting to read for a while, and that I hope to read very soon! This week my pick is the Strange Angels series by Lili St. Crow. I've heard so many good things about this series that I really must try and read it soon!

Have you read this series? Let me know what you thought!
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?

Betrayals

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?

Jealousy

It's a good thing Dru Anderson is fast. Because the sucker chasing her isn't slowing down - and he won't rest until he has tasted her blood and silenced her heart...

Dru's best friend, Graves, and her strange and handsome savior, Christophe, are ready to help her take on the ultimate evil. But will their battle for Dru's heart get in the way of her survival?

Defiance

Now that sixteen-year-old Dru's worst fears have come true and Sergej has kidnapped her best friend Graves, she'll have to go on a suicidal rescue mission to bring him back in one piece.

That is, if she can put all of Christophe's training to good use, defeat her mother's traitor, Anna, once and for all, and manage to survive another day...

The Reckoning

Nobody expected Dru Anderson to survive this long. Not Graves. Not Christophe. Not even Dru. She's battled killer zombies, jealous djamphirs, and bloodthirsty suckers straight out of her worst nightmares. But now that Dru has bloomed into a full-fledged svetocha-rare, beautiful, and toxic to all vampires-the worst is yet to come.

I found the story telling quality in Strange Angels to be really good but Dru is too stupid to live for my liking...

LOL Cherry, that really made me laugh :)

Thanks for sharing your opinion :)

I really enjoy the premise of the series, but I wasn't as excited about Strange Angels as I expected to be. I guess I wanted Dru to be more in control. Betrayals was much better and I'll be tracking down Jealousy next.
