   The electric finale in New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow’s Strange Angels series!
Nobody expected Dru Anderson to survive this long. Not Graves. Not Christophe. Not even Dru. She’s battled killer zombies, jealous djamphirs, and bloodthirsty suckers straight out of her worst nightmares. But now that Dru has bloomed into a full-fledged svetocha – rare, beautiful, and toxic to all vampires – the worst is yet to come.
Because getting out alive is going to cost more than she’s ever imagined. And in the end, is survival really worth the sacrifice?DRU ANDERSON’S NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK. BUT SHE SHOULD BE.
This Book Contains:  Violence, Romance, Death, Wolves, and Vampires
This is the fifth and final book in the Strange Angel series.  I am not going to describe the plot because if you haven’t read the previous book it would probably contain spoilers and I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone.    As far as the characters go you basically have Dru who is a kick ass heroine and has a lot of people counting on her.  She really isn’t as brave as she pretends to be but she will do what ever it takes to protect the ones she cares about.   Graves is one of those people who she will do anything to keep safe. Graves believes in Dru and will do anything he can to help support her.  Then you have Christophe who is one of my favorite characters and he is willing to die for Dru.  The love and devotion that he shows for Dru is just awe-inspiring.
Ok I will say that I was afraid to read this book because of all the people who were mad about the way this book ended.  Some of the reviews were just so awful and I am very glad that I didn’t pay attention to this them.  This last book had a lot of people upset because they wanted Dru to make a choice but I won’t tell you what that choice is because it is  a spoiler.  All I will say is that the book ends on a note that leaves it open for a spinoff.  I feel it ended well and that you are let to imagine what possibilities are out there for these characters.  That to me is better than the author falling to pressure and writing an ending to please some of the fans or a publisher.  This ending just opened the door to future books and possible more from these amazing character that have now have a permanent place in my heart.
