Every Other Day

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, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive. . .and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

This was a very different read for me. Was kinda like Buffy meets Supernatural, both WB, T.V. series.  It started out so confusing, I didn't understand what was going on. I think thats how the author drew me in though, I wanted to figure it out. There was so much going on. SO many different kind of creatures. A few inconsistencies. The middle and end got better. I think that Kali's friends  Skylar and Bethany were GREAT characters. I loved there constant arguing and bickering, it was funny and entertaining. There was a little bit of romance with Kali. I hate the cliff hanger, I am sure there will be a second book and I will read it.
