What would you do if your father came home a day late… as a zombie intent on killing you? How would you deal with flaming dogs and slavering werwulfs came hunting you in an empty Mall at some ungodly hour of the morning?
Not sure – neither was I. Dru Anderson, a 16 year old orphan, after she kills her zombie father, has to deal with this and much more as she struggles to come to terms with the death of her father, her comfortable ability to sense the supernatural escalating and expanding, her only friend, Graves, being bitten by a werwulf and turning into a loup-garou and a strange vampire hunter, who is stunningly good looking and has fangs of his own giving her orders and interfering.
I found Dru to be a bit whiny, as she continually stopped to have inner debates about the deep meaning of events and what she should do. Then again, I can understand her attitude though – I would definitely not cope well with the situation! Graves seems to be very willing to go along with whatever…
I’m not sure that I will read the next installment. I enjoyed the book, but would not rave about it!
