I love the Strange Angels series. At first I was hesitant to read the books because I heard it had a lot of swearing. . .but I just decided to read the first book- which did have a lot of profanity in it. But I fell in love with the characters- not Dru so much, she actually annoyed me to know end, acting like she was much older than she was, but I love Graves and Christophe. . .a lot! And the second book didn't have as much swearing as the first and Dru calmed down a bit and had a few breakdowns. And the third book was really good, I can't decide which book was my favorite, but this one really keeps the suspense going. . .I was like- "God, Graves, she likes you, you like her. Kiss her already! Tell her how you feel before Christophe sweeps her away!"
There were funny moments, I love Shanks and Dibs, the bodyguards are cool, I just wish I knew for certain who's on her side and who's a double-agent. I was a little bit agitated with how it was so obvious that Anna was bad and was out to get Dru, I mean HELLO she practically spelled it out for everyone but no one wanted to believe it. And then with Dru how she started doubting her faith and knowledge in Graves got to me too, she acted like he was just some stranger, questioning how well she knew him, but she never questioned Christophe who's a bit creepy- liking her and being in love with her dead mother. That still freaks me out.
I thought I knew who Dru was going to chose- Graves. But then at that last fifty pages something happens, and now- I'm not so sure.
Read this third book, it rocks, I can't wait for the last two books to come out!

    I started the Strange Angels series with high hopes. Let me just

    I started the Strange Angels series with high hopes. Let me just say, I was mislead horribly. I gave this series three books to turn things around and have been disappointed each time.

    First of all, this series is a mishmash of all things pop culture and currently iconic. No wonder it's been a hit with teenagers everywhere-- it plays to every major fan base in existence. Harry Potter and Supernatural to name two. The primary one, however, is Twilight. If you didn't immediately recognize this series as an overly embellished ripoff of Stephanie Meyer's series, I challenge you to read it again.

    The very first book, we are introduced to Dru, a misunderstood loner who lives in a single-parent household and lives on the fringes of society, separated from a normal life by the existence of the "Real World." She meets a nice boy (love interest #1) who befriends her and in doing so is dragged into her world via a werewolf bite. But wait! There's more! The love triangle really gets going when the reader is introduced to love interest #2 who is... you guessed it! A vampire!

    Things rapidly degenerate from that point.

    That isn't to say that the books don't have their positive aspects. After all, I managed to get through three of them without proclaiming them a lost cause. The plot is interesting, but one of the major failings of these books is that it develops EXCRUCIATINGLY slowly. If these books were half as long and skipped the unnecessary angst and constant internal monologue on behalf of the main character, these would have been much more enjoyable.

    What I would have appreciated, however, was a little more information on Dru's status as a svetocha. It was the one thing St. Crow didn't adequately describe, though apparently there was room in each book to detail every aspect of every room the girl ever slept in. ("I don't care whether or not the color of the draperies matches the bedspread-- what's this about fangs?!") The things that were revealed had a sort of "surprise!" element to them, as if the author was simply tossing things in as the story developed. Eventually, the information formed a cohesive whole, but by that point, it was too little, too late.

    For me, Dru's characterization in particular was a letdown. After establishing her as a kickass female dynamo, prepared to take on roach spirits and other undead baddies, she was quickly revealed to be little more than a "helpless female." Frankly, it was insulting. The incessant internal monologue was bad enough, but the fact that she never said anything out loud was the worst. She NEVER made her true opinion known. (Though we certainly got to hear far too much of it.) Essentially, she allowed others to make decisions for her and dictate her every action, proving time and again that she was all too willing to hand over the control of her life in exchange for a "smooth ride" which never came.

    Overall, these books were little more than a mildly entertaining way to pass a few afternoons. I will not be continuing the series. The looming question of "Graves or Christophe?" will never be answered... and I couldn't care less.
