Tell Me About It
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.
My Thoughts
I have read Raised by Wolves and Trial By Fire, both by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, so when I saw Every Other Day come up on Netgalley I knew I had to read it.

From the start of Every Other Day you are thrown straight into the action as we see Kali kill preternatural creatures, and follow her as she makes friends (a first) and does what she can to protect them.  Her path to friendship is a rocky one though, and although you can see she doesn't want to make friends, she is eventually drawn into a group of misfits who welcome her like she is one of them.

I really enjoyed reading Every Other Day, although it isn't like Jennifer's other books I have read, it was a refreshing change to see how she writes about different characters and roles.
Every Other Day is defiantly a page turner, the suspense kept me wanting to turn the page to see what happens next to Kali and how she is going to act to the different situations she is put into. I was surprised with how the story panned out, and didn't expect things to take place, or for people to be "found".

Every Other Day had me laughing and crying and I did not expect it to end the way it did. If you are a fan of Jennifer Lynn Barnes then you should defiantly check this book out, if your not, then you don't know what your missing.

  1. I've seen this on NetGalley, but since I'm currently trying to reduce the number of eGalleys I have to read, I didn't request it. But after reading your review, I might need to request it after all, because it sounds quite intriguing.
    Thanks for sharing! :)
