10 Book Giveaway - Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

About the book:
Meet Dru Anderson.
Night Hunter. Knife Thrower. Heart Breaker.

STRANGE ANGELS
by Lili St. Crow

“Dad? Zombie.
Mom? Long gone.
Me? Well, that’s the Scary Part.”

Dru Anderson’s not afraid of the dark. But she should be. STRANGE ANGELS (Razorbill; Trade Paperback Original; 978-1-59514-251-1; $9.99; 304 pages; Ages 12 up; May 14, 2009) is the first in a thrilling new paranormal series that introduces readers to Dru, the toughest teen hunter since Buffy hung up her stake. When something evil taps at her kitchen door, can this strange angel stand the heat? Or is it just a matter of time before her blood turns cold?

Dru and her father travel town to town hunting “Real World” baddies like suckers, wulfen, and the occasional reanimated corpse. Then Dru’s dad turns up dead (but still walking), and she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a deadly game of cat and mouse where she’s going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. Even worse, she’s got two guys (Graves, freshly bitten by a werewulf, and Christophe, a half-human vampire hunter) 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?

Fans of vampire series and paranormal romance will be mesmerized by the action-packed adventures and self discovery Dru must face in order to come to terms with her destiny. And this girl’s not going down without a fight.


About the Author:
Lili St. Crow was born in New Mexico, bounced around the world as an Air Force brat, and fell in love with writing when she was ten years old. After taking second place in a fiction-writing contest sealed her addiction to the written word, she now suspects that she has ink instead of blood filling her veins. She lives in Vancouver, WA with her husband, three children, and a houseful of cats. She is the author of the Dante Valentine series, the Jill Kismet series, as well as The Watcher series, among others. This is her first YA novel. Visit http://www.lilistcrow.com/ to find out more.

About the Giveaway:
Now for the giveaway! The kind folks at Razorbill (Penguin Young Readers Group) are sharing 10 arc copies of Strange Angels. U.S. addresses only for this giveaway, and here’s how it will work:
Tomorrow (May 14, 2009) is release day, and 3 winners will be chosen. Then, for the week following, a new winner will be drawn each day. How great is that? You can enter once each day throughout the contest to increase your odds of being chosen.

You can also read my review of Strange Angels on the website: http://darquereviews.com/12612/134296.html

Take a peek at the book trailer: HERE

Good luck, and happy reading!

You said you'd like to know what other YA paranormal book we might be looking forward to - here's one: Blood Promise by Richelle Mead, the next in the Vampire Academy series. The ending of the last one broke my heart - I've gotta know what happens next!!

Blue Moon: The Immortals by Alyson Noel coming out in July looks like its going to be a good read. Her first book was Evermore.
