In Strange Angels, Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)
Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

I enjoyed this book for the most part. It didn't captivate me like I had hoped it would. It felt like something was missing.
The story starts pretty quickly. You don't get much from Dru's dad while he is still human, before he is reanimated, and coming home. From then Dru has no other family to turn to, she's in a new school in a new town.
She is on the run from suckers and wulfen. Along the way Dru learns about true friendship. She also learns more about herself and her family history.
I think there needed to be more character development....and maybe some maturity added in. I was tempted to give this a rating of 2 stars, but the end did start getting a little bit better. I am one that LOVES details. I want to know exactly what happened. Strange Angels definately lacked description. Dru could be down right annoying at times.
