"Jealousy" by Lili St. Crow

Jealousy (Strange Angels, Book 3) From Goodreads: "It's a good thing Dru Anderson is fast. Because the sucker chasing her isn't slowing down—and he won't rest until he has tasted her blood and silenced her heart . . .

Dru's best friend, Graves, and her strange and handsome savior, Christophe, are ready to help her take on the ultimate evil. But will their battle for Dru's heart get in the way of her survival?"


WARNING: Under no circumstances should you read the following if you have not read the first two books in the "Strange Angel" series (and this review does contain spoilers of this book so if you don't want to it be wrecked for you, continue no further!).

Lili touches upon quite a few topics in this book that she doesn't in the others (or she tries to in the other books, but you know, characters get in the way, interrupting one another and everything... Ugh, darn characters!) and she fully explains these topics/ ideas, unlike in the other books, and therefore we aren't left questioning as much as we usually are *does happy dance*, especially from page 130 onwards. Combined with the pace of this story (which is super fast), I think that we might just have the best book in the series (even if it totally breaks your heart)!

Now, I am not going to lie, I don't totally I don't understand whatsoever why Graves left Dru. Because she wouldn't tell him who hit her? I hate to break it to you buddy, but it was pretty obvious who hit her considering the majority of those around Dru practically worship her/ hold her on a pedestal and as such I don't think that they would be the culprits. Who hates Dru with every fiber of her being? Oh yeah! That person! Hmmmm... I wonder if they were the one who hit her? DUH!

In my review of "Betrayals" I said that I believed Ash to be the most intriguing character of the series and that still rings true. I just really, really, REALLY, want to know what his endgame is! In this book I thought that it was really nice to see him being able to communicate more and more (like when he kept pointing at the door and pointing at Dru meaning "Missy, you have got to get out of this room before the suckers decide to snack on you!"). Also, towards the very end of the book when he was in the informatory and his body kept shifting back and forth? My heart was so happy! 

And like I mentioned earlier, this book will totally break your heart. For a number of reasons. If you are team one boy and read what happens between Dru and that boy, you will be totally happy, but then all of a sudden BAM! The tables completely turn and it starts to seem like Dru is leaning towards the other boy, and you will be heartbroken (or vice versa, you will be totally rooting and thinking "Way to make the right decision Dru!"). And even if you are not a fan of one of these boys, when you hear what horrible-ness is happening to one of them? Well, you will become a fan and you will pray that it all ends well for him.

All in all, this is the best book in the series. Again, we are introduced to a ton of new characters (I must say that Leon is by far my favourite character introduced in this book- I just love his dry humor/ snarkiness). I think that "Defiance", the next book in the series, will boil down to is what who will Dru choose? The boy that she feels the most comfortable with? Or the boy that she feels passionate towards?

Rating: 10/10
