Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited by all of us bibliophiles.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday title is:
I love the Strange Angels series & this is the final book in the series! I just recently discovered Dru and company and I tore through the series. Now, I've got to wait until November 1, 2011 for the final installlment.
Dru has spent her entire life feeling different. After her mother died when she was young, her father took her to live with her grandmother in rural Appalachia. Her grandmother taught her folk magic, how to ward against evil and such. Dru is a seer, she can see evil beings where most humans can not. At 12, she takes to the road with her father after her grandmother dies. Her father hunts and kills the evil beings that Dru can see. When she is 16, a trip to the Dakotas goes wrong and Dru finds herself on her own, with her only friend a homeless boy from her class. Graves and Dru fight to survive and, eventually, Dru finds out more about herself and her mother than she could have ever imagined.
I won't go any further--I don't want to spoil anything for someone not having read the series. If you haven't, I strongly suggest you read Strange Angels (Strange Angels, Book 1). It's a great introductory book, introducing interesting characters and providing a strong basis for the series.
I hope that Reckoning: A Strange Angels Novel finds Dru knowing who she can trust and making choices for herself. I also hope that we find out what Dru's given name is--but that seems to be a highly guarded secret, we may never find the answer to that one :)
