Dru Anderson
Night Hunter. Knife Thrower. Heart Breaker.

Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.) Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever — is hunting her?

Taschima's POV:

I've heard, and read, lots of things about this book. But nothing compares to reading it first hand.

Dru Anderson goes from town to town with her father, looking for the things that creep at night, vampires, werewolves, and the occasional zombie.

But after one fatal hunt, where her father never comes back home, Dru is suppose to face the fact that she is by herself. And being by one self's ain't good when you know about the Real World.

Not only this, but someone is out to get her, someone who has a connection to her past she didn't even know. Now Dru, along side with Graves and the Dhampire Christophe, must skip town, and try to survive.

Dru Anderson is indeed a tough cookie, but so incredibly real at the same time. She really tries to look like nothing can get to her, but on the inside she is as terrified as your average teenager.And she actually grows and ain't kick ass since the beginning, she has to learn, she molds to her part. Now Graves, I just love saying that name, he seemed, at times, too good to be true. He doesn't freak easily, and is terribly well put together for a 17-year-old guy, give or take.

There are also a few extra characters that may or may not make your mouth water, but these two are basically the main ones.

We also get to see some new, and not so new, theories about your favorite buddies- vampires, werewulf, dhampires, etc.

A few things that did not make me happy is that there was little zombie action. Also the romance department wasn't great, you get to read cute scenes, but other than that it falls flat. So I don't know why in the front cover it says "Heart Breaker" really.

I also thought that the character's drawing talent had a lot of potential to becoming something more than just a hobby. But in like the middle the drawing was forgotten and the ass kicking began, much to my delight and dismay.

At times I felt like the author wanted to just fill the pages, a little repetitive at most. But on this roller coaster ride you will get to witness the beginning of something with the potential to greatness.

PS; Thank you Rebecca from Everything To Do With Books for the Let's Be Friends Award!
