GoodReads  "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 seriously loved this book! Strange Angels was a fun, fast-paced read that was very hard to put down. Full of action and danger, St. Crow pulls the reader into the Real World with things that go bump in the night.

Dru Anderson loves her dad. He's not the most conventional parent, but Dru knows he loves her. Together they travel the country fighting 'wulfen' and 'suckers', among other nasty buggers.
