The opening scene in Every Other Day starts with Kali D'Angelo preparing, not for school or a date, but for a hunt. She’s a sixteen year old predator, with skills far beyond what humans are capable of… at least today. Tomorrow she goes back to being a teenage girl at her new high school where she tries to stay under the radar of pretty much everyone.
Kali doesn’t know what she is, only what she must do. The hunter in her takes over and she follows her instinct. However, on her human day she sees a specific marking on one of the popular girls, she knows she has to do something to save the girl. What follows is a fast paced adventure and along the way Kali must learn to trust and open herself to those around her - something she’s never done before.
I adore the pace kept by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. It moved, even when it was giving information, it kept going. I couldn’t put it down and read it in a matter of hours. There are hellhounds, zombies, basilisks, vampires and chupacabras to name a few of the preternaturals Kali must face if she and her friends will survive. Seriously, what more could you want?
