Latest Audiobook Love

Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) If SUPERNATURAL and BUFFY had a baby, this book would be it. But as much as I love both those TV shows, it's Lili St. Crow's writing that totally won me over with this book. It flows so well, and the protag (Dru's) voice is amazing.

I should warn audiobook listeners that her inner monologue (wonderful as it is) is often untagged, so when the narrator reads it, you sometimes wonder if the character just said it out loud or not. But those infrequent hiccups are worth working through.

My only plot gripe is that I'm not sure I believe that her dad would have told her so little about her supernatural background, but I understand that it can be stronger for the protag to learn about her situation, little by little, along with the reader. Also, her dad's reasons might be explained more in future books of this series...which I'm so looking forward to reading/hearing.

If you like this, you might also like these series:
