Wednesday Random Recommendation (30)
Dru Anderson has been “strange” for as long as she can remember. She travels from town to town with her father, hunting the things that go bump in the night and eat the unwary. It’s a weird life, but a good one–until it all explodes and a zombie busts into her new house.
Alone, terrified, and trapped in an icy town, Dru’s going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. Can she trust the boy who is just a little too adult–and just happens to get bit by a werwulf? Or the strange blue-eyed boy who tells her she’s heir to a long-forgotten power? Can she even trust her own instincts?
Because Dru is not the first in her family to be killed by the darkness of the Real World. The monsters have decided to hunt back–and now Dru has to figure out who to trust, who to fight, and when to run. And not incidentally, she has to figure out how she’s going to get out of this alive.
And she has to do it by sundown, or it’s all over…
The first of Lili St. Crow’s Strange Angels series, this book is filled with non-stop action. Dru is one tough, kick-butt girl you don’t want to mess with. Her strength comes from deep within her and once the fight for survival is over she’s not afraid to show her emotions and cry. Dru’s relationship with Graves begins after the tragedy of her father’s death and they are just two kids looking to survive. As Graves becomes more immersed in what Dru knows as the Real World, he learns that the things that go bump in the night are more real than he ever imagined.
I invite and welcome anyone interested in participating to post their own "Random Recommendation" (original post) on their blog (and include a link back to this blog) and join in the fun! Some books might not be very recent reads, but I hope that just helps these (sometimes forgotten) books earn a spot on your own bookshelf!
