A Strange Angels novel. Razorbill, 2010. ISBN 9781921518874.
(Age 14+) Recommended. The third in the Strange Angels series sees Dru at the Schola Prima, the main school where the djamphir are trained. After having her father turn into a zombie, meeting the charismatic Christophe, finding her friend Graves is a werewolf prince and fighting off the evil Sergie, she is hoping that she will be safe. However there is another svetocha at the school, Anna, a beautiful redheaded woman who wants Christophe and who is determined to get rid of Dru and things begin to get really dangerous once again.
Lili St Crow has created a believable world peopled with vampires, wulven and bloodthirsty nosferat. At the school Dru, and the reader, learn more about this fascinating society and how it operates. Dru is a strong, tough girl who is intelligent and her two sidekicks and romantic interests, Christophe and Graves are well developed. St Crow leaves reader wondering about the romance and who Dru will eventually chose, and this adds to the interest as well as ensuring that the reader will pick up the next book in the series! Christophe remains an enigma, but Graves continues to develop, his loyalty to Dru unquestionable and his feelings for her a mystery.
As with the two previous books in the series, I had to finish this one very quickly because of its action packed plot and the development of the characters and am really looking forward to the next in the series. A must read of those who like the paranormal.
