  Every other day, Kali D’Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She’s human.
And then every day in between . . . She’s something else entirely.
Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.
When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she’ll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends.     

I reread this story again after reading it from NetGalley and not being able to finish it because of my nook being broken at the time.  I was pleased to say that I liked it even more than the first time around. I also loved the fact that it was more science fiction than paranormal.  That was a very pleasant surprise because I am a huge fan of sci-fi.   I love Jennifer’s books and she never fails to weave a very realistic book that just seem to suck you right in.  This book is just so believable that you can almost picture this world with preternatural creatures.  I love how she mixes Darwin’s discovery of evolution with the supernatural.  I love how everything is explained by science in this book and you are not left wondering what or why these creatures are.

The main character Kali is part human and part preternatural which is not a new twist for a character but the fact that she is only it every other day is.  She is definitely the type of character that I enjoy the most.  She is smart, strong and not afraid to kick but when she needs to.  The only thing I didn’t like is that she seemed to have a little self pitting going on but give her life that is to be expected.

I know this is a stand alone but it would be great if Jennifer decided to write a sequel to this one I would definitely buy it as soon as it was out.   Also, this cover is absolutely phenomenal.  I highly recommend this book it is a great ride!
