She's no angel . . .Betrayals picks up where Strange Angels left off with Dru and Graves arriving at a secret Schola – a school where Dru’s suppose to train and find out who set her up to die at Sergej’s hands. It’s never nice being the new kid at school or should I say the only girl amongst a bunch of boys who are dhampir or wulfen. When Dru finally starts to fit in, that’s when things get very interesting. You never know what’s lurking in the shadows or in Dru’s case, which friend or foe is waiting to get her out of the picture for good.
Poor Dru Anderson. Her parents are long gone, her best friend is a werewolf, and she's just learned that the blood flowing through her veins isn't entirely human. (So what else is new?)
Now Dru is stuck at a secret New England Schola for other teens like her, and there's a big problem— she's the only girl in the place. A school full of cute boys wouldn't be so bad, but Dru's killer instinct says that one of them wants her dead. And with all eyes on her, discovering a traitor within the Order could mean a lot more than social suicide. . .
Can Dru survive long enough to find out who has betrayed her trust—and maybe even her heart?
St. Crow did a wonderful job with Betrayals. She continues to impress me with her writing and the world that’s she’s created in Strange Angels. I love that Dru is a strong heroine and wants to be treated like the boys even though she’s special and supposed to be protected from all threats. I was happy to see a different side of Graves in this book. He’s still a sweetheart yet a fearsome one that any girl would be proud to have as a protector. I’m ecstatic that I got to know more about Christophe. We saw little of him in Strange Angels but I’ve found myself crushing on him in Betrayals – Yum apple pie! St. Crow did a brilliant job with creating the characters in the Strange Angels’ World and I can’t get enough of them.
I loved Strange Angels and I couldn’t wait to see if Betrayals would surpass my expectations after the heart-stopping events in Strange Angels. Well, I’ll just say Lili pulled out all the stops in Betrayals. There were some unexpected twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat and I swear you could have dropped a dime in my mouth because it was on the floor. Betrayals is a jaw dropping action packed experience that will have you begging for more or jumping at unexpected sounds thinking there actually are things that go bump in the night…
I can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment!
