Review: Every Other Day By: Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Every Other DayEvery Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the first page I could not put this book down. With such vivid description of hunting hellhounds you enter the world of Kali D'Angelo, a world in which the myths and supernatural are day to day and very much alive. Every other day Kali is the hunter, with amazing strength and the capability to use her blood to poison the preternatural beings and the other days she is a high school student lost in the crowd being attacked by the popular crowds.
The story takes place over a 48 hour period where the most popular school is being destroyed by a chupacabra (a parasite that eats its host from the inside out - including memories, leaving only the mark upon it's victims in the form of the ouroboros), Kali takes it upon herself to save Bethany and have it enter her body. With Bethany and Skylar - Kali trys hiding from people claiming to be part of the CDC - evil scientists and the like, while buying time for the the voice that now is connected to her psychically through the parasite a man named Zev, finding her true nature of being and still save the day...
As I said, Ms. Barnes wrote this in such a fast paced, do not put the book down way. With twists, turns, and a few suprises I was not disappointed in reading this and have now found an author to look for.
