Review by wyvernfriend
Kali D'Angelo used to be home-schooled until her dad decided that she was going to high-school, she's 16 and pretty normal, well half the time she's pretty normal. Every other day she's a hunter, with the ability to heal from wounds and find the supernatural creatures that hunt humanity. She feels a compulsion to hunt them.She's starting to find a place for herself in school and finding a friend, Skyler, who's a little bit psychic, or so she claims, and then the daughter of her Dad's boss, and most of the reason she's in high school has an Orobous symbol on her, a sign she's going to die, and soon. Kali takes on the creature hoping that her other abilities will kick in before the creature kills her, it's the wrong day.I liked this one, Kali is an interesting character and I loved Skyler and her family and her ability to embrace all the facets of a friend's difference and still like them. There were moments where the flow was interrupted and I did feel like I was missing something in the story for the background but overall I did like it. The personal mantras from Kali were a bit repeditive sometimes but you could see that she needed this in her life to keep going.This is an author I will have to read more of.
