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—orwhoever— is hunting her?"
I got to reading this series right after my first Lilith Saintcrow series, "The Jill Kismet" series. I liked her style and decided to check out her YA book.
Dru has been living on the road for almost all her life with her dad, hunting things that go bump in the night. Her mother has died in a mysterious manner and her grandma passed away years before. At an early age Dru's grandma has trained her to deal with she called her "touch" and with that talent Dru has been able to help her father in his quest.
However, her world gets turned upside down when her father becomes one of the things he used to hunt and Dru has to deal with it herself. She is alone now and very much in shock and lost.
This book takes us on her journey dealing with the aftermath of her father's death, Grieves - a new friend - and finding out that her "touch" might be much more than she bargained for.
I don't like comparing series of the same genre, I believe that each series and Author has their own value and I evaluate every new book that way. If the character's story moves me and makes me want more, that's a winner in my view.
I find that this series has a lot of potential. Dru's pain was mine a lot of the time and I shed tears in her behalf. Grieves is a very interesting secondary character and I am very interested to see where his and Dru's relationship evolves to.
I'm going to give this book 3 and a Half Loveys. It was not extraordinary, but it definitely has a lot of potential.
