Betrayals - Lili St. Crow (Strange Angels #2)
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 School 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?
I'm not gonna lie, this was another that it took me more than once to get in to, but once I did (tried reading it again directly after re-reading Strange Angels) I ploughed through it in one day. (This series is great on its own, but I think it really benefits from being read one right after the other, as the books pretty much happen that way).
I love how Dru is coming into her own, how she's getting stronger, but at the same time, how vulnerable she is now, that the only person she can count on is her friend Graves. And Graves has his own problems.
Both characters have grown so much, and it's as though they've each discovered a different world--Dru, who had no idea just how organized the "real world" of paranormal creatures was, and how important she is to them, and Graves, who is trying to figure out where he stands with his new partial-werewolf state, while trying to protect Dru at the same time.
Love love love this series. Off to read Jealousy...can't wait!
