I feel kind of sad that this series is now finished....no more. I really loved the ‘Strange Angels’ series. What I loved about this final instalment was Lili gave us a Dru that was realistic. Dru was starting to have a melt down. She was still a teenager. She had been doing things her whole life that went against what little girls should be doing. Then her father is killed, zombified and all these characters enter her life, some trying to kill her constantly. She never gives up, just keeps on doing what she needed to do at the time. Never thinking about herself. Then there are these two guys, Christophe and Graves, and their feelings for her are having a major effect on her. I as the reader couldn’t choose between them. How could Dru? She is still a young woman, who has just bloomed, hormones are not a fun thing. Graves’s character has come so far from the first book and he has been her friend. He may have been very up and down with showing his feelings for Dru, but he hasn’t had an easy childhood, nobody to really support him and be there for him, when he was growing up. There was a wall to crack through. Christophe has been around the block many, many, many times. I don’t feel as though his character grew that much. He was always there for Dru and loved her. He would lay his life down for her. She meant a great deal to him. More than Dru probably realised. I love Christophe and Graves, I just could not make my own decision, I may be out of line here but it felt like Lili couldn’t either. I received this book from Penguin....I did ask...hehe, cheeky I know, but I had to read it. Then when I got it, I think I held off reading it because it is a favourite YA series of mine and I didn’t want to read ‘The End’, well in this case ‘finis’. I wasn’t yet ready. Now I think I shall have PABSD = Post Awesome Book Series Depression. I loved all the sub characters, every instalment in the series, and of course Christophe and Graves. One minute I would be loving Christophe more, then Graves would pull at my heart strings. I was like a see saw. Lili puts some lovely twists in to this book, which I didn’t see coming. Even though I was a tad worried about how good the last book would be, I was very satisfied with how Lili handled it. I actually thought it was quite clever and different the way she ended this series. It would be hard to keep all readers happy with how an author ends a series that has become very popular. I think Lili did a bang on job of it. I loved that she showed Dru’s weakness, infact she showed us Christophes weakness, which was Dru. I think I still feel a little hollow that I have no more books to read in this series. Which is a good thing, it means the writer did a great job of the last book. I am going to miss everyone. These books were such a ride and now I have no more tickets left....*sniff*

So. Sad. I have loved this book series from the very beginning, and have long awaited the arrival of the final book. Lili St. Crow is an awesome writer, and has a lot of talent that makes this book series an unbelievable page turner. However, I WAS NOT PLEASED WITH THE ENDING. It can't end here! I kept thinking, "There has to be more, there has to be more!" and was extremely dissapointed in how the series was wrapped up. If you are reading this Lili St. Crow, PLEASE WRITE MORE! WE ALL WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

I like the series. I do. I just do NOT like the ending! I just wasted my money so Dru would NOT STAY WITH CHRISTOPHE?????????? No way! I LOVE Christophe! It makes more sense for Dru to stay with Cristophe, who is her own kind than Graves, who is not. I like Graves more as a brother for Dru. NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!:'(

Wow, what a read! I am so sad to see this series end, epescially on a cliff hanger like that. I gave this book 4 stars because while it is a good book, I really disliked the ending. Hopefully there will be a spin off series from Graves or Christophes point of view to give me more closure. Fingers crossed! Overall, loved it!

I'm just going to pretend that Dru ended up with Christophe in the end I mean COME ON! Graves left and doesn't comeback until who knows how long and Christophe is in the same place as her. So I will pretend that Dru and Christophe fall in love while Graves is away.

The last book in a series that I've loved since book one.  Dru has finally bloomed and is on the run with the recently rescued Graves and, the just returned to human form, Ash. It was really nice to see Dru take the lead in protecting herself. She's always had her own way of following other's orders, but we finally get to see her put all her training and smarts into use.  A lot of questions are answered, but the way to those answers is full of plot twists that keep you guessing all thru the book. I particularly like the last minute inclusion of the djinn to make the whole thing even more confusing for Dru.  This is the ideal end to a great story. I know a lot of people are going to disagree with me, but it might just be that I'm older than the intended audienceand that gives me a different perspective. In the end, Dru makes the decision that (while not the easiest, or the usual one for this kind of series) is the best for her and all involved. Kudos to the author for going with road less popular.

This was one of my favorite series until this book. The book itself is fabulous; however, as an ending to a series, I feel it has too many loose ends. I would still recommend the series and this book. I

I love this series. I loved going through Dru's crazy hectact life. I loved her strong sassy charctor and loved the way she handled thing. But I could have done with less waterworks. I did not like one bit that there were so many loss ends as to witch boy she picks and if Sergaj is really dead. I mean I could see if the autor wanted to extend the seres but it has been 2 yers so like it is unlikly so I was alittle upset that their was not a real ending with closer :(:(:(

I loved this series so much for mixing the Bad-Ass vibe with the concept that when everything goes wrong, damn it and fight! That you probably wont have super fast healing, an killer army, or have ninja moves all of a sudden to back you up, so when you get punched you HURT and if you get stabbed you sure as hell can die. There is no turning back from where you came from, but to where you are going, you wont be alone. Love it!

out of all the series i have read this is one of my favorites it has left me in a whirlwind of emotions: sad that I finished the final book, happy I learnd what happens in the end and although I am frustrated at all the cliff hangers and desperately wish i could know if dru picks graves or christophe I think the clif hangers were quite neccisary it made dru's character seem more realistic because she still has problems and challages to over come instead of 'horay I did what I set out to do lets all ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after!' All in all it was a great book and an even better series with so many unprodictable twist and turns that always left my on edge as well as amazing humor and drama i recomend this book to any one who hasn't read it

This series is.... fantastic? Is there a better wordnformit. The plot keeps twisting and the lessons of loyalty and friendship burn even brighter in this book. I enjoyed all of it so much. Definetly something I could reread and experience again. The ending is heart wrenching snd jaw dropping.... I dont like those hangers at all. But.... like I said a fantastic series.
