REVIEW(spoilers from the previous books): 

I think i'm obsessed with those series. Every time i want more and more. It's like when i was reading Vampire Academy for first time!

As i've told before for the previous books (Strange Angels & Betrayal ) the story reminds me something of Supernatural in way there were hunters and monsters. We continue to follow Dru's complicated life, where she learned she is not a human and after the betrayals of the second book, she now move once again to a new school. Once again is full of dhampir boys and wolfen (there are some girls there). Once again, they don't let her do much things and she now tries to learn who really betrayed her mother. Always, next to her is Graves and from time to time we see the mysterious Christophe. The book has a really good cliffhanger at the end, which makes you want to grab the next one immediately and you finally get some answers for the questions of the previous ones.

Lili St.Crow keeps her writing the same, simple but captivating. It's full of action and new characters with their own little secrets, and as Dru, you don't really can't decide who to trust or not. I like that mysterious vibe of it. Once again, the wolfen were the best thing at the book for me. They are the only who don't have treacherous or dangerous thoughts and really help Dru. Every time they are getting better and better. It's almost impossible not to like them. All the characters from the secondary to the first ones that appear have their purpose, and it's not confusing as they appear at their right time.

Jealously was not the my fav book of the series, but i totally enjoyed it too.

The heart-stopping fourth novel in New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow's Strange Angels series.

Now that sixteen-year-old Dru's worst fears have come true and Sergej has kidnapped her best friend Graves, she'll have to go on a suicidal rescue mission to bring him back in one piece.
That is, if she can put all of Christophe's training to good use, defeat her mother's traitor, Anna, once and for all, and manage to survive another day . . .

REVIEW (spoilers from the previous books):
Now, that's my fav book of the series!

The Council finally let Dru has some action! Once again the wolfen are the most calm thing at her life. She now has more problems with what she is. She learns more about the council works. She tries to understand what she feels. And most important! Graves is abducted and they don't let her do anything about it.

Why my favorite? It's more badass, the action is even more instense, we see more of Dru, we see more of Ash (best wolfen ever!), we see that Christophe is annoying (i just don't like him), Dru gets a female friend and we see how much Dru can risk about her friends.

Dru has matured in many ways, and even if she does stupid things at time, she knows what she is doing. She knows it's stupid but she just want to do something instead be kept at the outside. I love how the author's writing feels so real and close to me. The reactions and thoughts of the characters, seem ordinary and something that you might actually do in their position. Best part of the book was the second half, were you finally learn small things about the questions you have.

Strange Angels are just so great series! It's funny how they are not as popular as other when they have at least a bit of originality in them compare to others.

Oh! And we are giving away Defiance in this month's giveaway ;)
