From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up–Sixteen-year-old Dru Anderson has grown up traveling the country with her demon-hunter father. When he tries to tackle a powerful sucker named Sergej in the Dakotas, he is turned into a zombie. After stopping him from killing her, Dru must save herself when she, too, becomes Sergej's target. She is befriended by Graves, a classmate who is quickly bitten and turned into a loup-garou (half werewolf), and meets Christophe, a djamphir (half-vampire vampire hunter). Dru also learns that she is growing into her own special powers. This is the first book in a series, and a large portion of it is spent developing the three lead characters, which occasionally slows down the action. While Graves seems to be the love interest, it is clear that both young men are attractive enough to draw Dru's attention, promising tension in future installments. However, the book is plagued by frequent odd descriptions (a werewolf the size of a Shetland pony and Graves, who is half Asian, described as a half breed), and the choppy pacing is sometimes distracting. Dru's inner monologue is a bit wordy during action scenes as well, which drags down the pace. Despite flaws, the similarities to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga (Little, Brown) will make this book an easy sell (though Dru is, by far, a tougher heroine than Bella, both in her language and her behavior), and the cliff-hanger ending will leave readers eager for the sequel.–Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH

Basically this: "Saving people, hunting things. The family business." With Dru's dad now also dead... err, undead.
Does this sound familiar to anyone else?? It's basically Supernatural, in book form! I was shocked to see so many similarities between the show and this book. It was crazy!
So, anyway, this case is supposed to be like any other case. Dru's father goes out to kill whatever supernatural creature they are currently after, then he is supposed to come back home after the hunt... Except he doesn't. Someone kills Dru's father and now that someone might be after Dru, as well. She needs to find out what her dad was hunting before she ends up dead herself. Plus, there is something about her... something different she doesn't know about... something this mysterious someone would kill to have. She's basically Sam Winchester! She's that kind of different.
I was kind of confused about her abilities, I mean she and her dad obviously knew she had some special abilities, but they are never really explained! Not until we find out what this "something different about her" is. We were never explained the extent of her powers. We were just kind of... shown, a little.
And then the thing with her mom's death... so much like Supernatural! That and her dad's death, the hunting, Dru's own powers... just add a sibling and we got the Winchesters! *sigh*
Even though I felt like I was reading Supernatural, I did enjoy the read! I loved the world that was created, all the interesting creatures. I loved the relationship between Dru and Graves, as well, and seeing how great a friend Graves turned out to be. I thought it was very sweet. The story was interesting enough, but more than a bit predictable.
I'm really looking forward to see where this story will be going next! Let's just hope Supernatural will be left a show and the plot line of the book will transform into something more original.
I will probably get around to reading at least the sequel eventually to see if Dru improves at all, but probably not anytime soon.
