Review quote

'This cracking read is one for youngsters and adults alike' The Sun. Sun 'A supernatural thriller. A very good one . if you prefer supernatural thrillers with a side of romance, as opposed to romance with a side of supernatural thrillers, Strange Angels is the perfect book for you. Fast-paced, intense and genuinely quite scary, it's the exciting start to what will hopefully prove to be an excellent series' BookBag. Bookbag 'Dark, dangerous, and sexy! Dru Anderson is a tough new heroine whose story you won't be able to put down' Richelle Mead, author of the Vampire Academy series. Richelle Meadshow more

Our customer reviews

It has all the elements of a good urban fantasy chicklit. Magic, werewolves, vampires and a kick-ass chick. But the main protagonist is consistently, irritatingly stupid. Or was it the way the story was told?!... Granted, she is a teenager and therefore expected to be occasionally stupid. But a ridiculously stupid protagonist makes an irritating read. Some authors can pull it off, having a teen protagonist who is stupid enough to be real and still have a pretty good read without being irritating. But this author is not one of them. For those readers who are more forgiving than me, then this might be a good read for them. But I wouldn't read another Lili St. Crow. I am more of a Jim Butcher kind of reader.show more

Written in first person narrative in what I can only describe as 'common' language and phrasing, which I did feel lowered the intelligence of the story but can easily be attributed to a 16/17 year old girl. Mild use of bad language which although fits in with the characters is not really necessary for the storyline. The actually layout of the book is very visual with the start of each chapter having black misty swirls at the top of the page, making it look sinister and instilling a feeling of dread. The story starts with a shocking twist that draws the reader right into the plot. The idea of an alternate world inhabited by monsters/vampire/werewolves/etc living side by side the human world brought to mind Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and The Night World Series by L.J.Smith, I actually think at one point there is a reference to the Night World in the plot. We are drawn into the protagonists (Dru) world where she is trying to maintain a normal facade when her life is anything but. The writing is very descriptive with lots of dramatic tension and some gory imagery. The description of the weather in particular actually made me feel cold. There are lots of references to snakes (not good if you have a snake phobia like me added together with my technicolour imagination) I could actually feel my skin crawling at the descriptions, which I guess is the point. The characters were well developed and interesting, there 'secrets' have yet to be fully revealed so there is plenty of scope to develop them further in Betrayals. Reminiscent of The Twilight Saga with the love triangle element. I am actually taking bets with myself at the moment to see if one of the main characters will have green eyes. The relationship between the characters is believable and easy to relate to (especially that of the friendship between Dru and Graves). Although the action is fast paced very little of the plot is revealed. There is a major cliffhanger ending; although some plot questions are answered there are a lot more left to be revealed (hopefully) in the next book, Betrayals. In conclusion, a good read if you like paranormal romance and lots of fast paced action and dramatic tension but be warned you will be left with a lot of unanswered questions and definitely have to read Betrayals to get more of the answers (great marketing strategy). Not for those looking for a stand alone story, this is definitely a series.show more
