    1. I liked this book a lot better than its predecessor.There was far less stupid questions and actions by the characters that made me want to tear out my hair.Dru is resourceful and clever in this book The action what there is of it is far better described and played out There s a few interesting twists to keep you guessing.I enjoy the characters of Graves and Christoph and the bevy of other characters introduced.There isn t much to say other than the fact that the lack of any real story progress o [...]


    2. So, Betrayals is the sequel to Strange Angels, and I have to say I was just as disappointed with this one as the first Both books could have been a hell of alot shorter without the constant and excessive need for repetition, it drove me insane Do we really need to be told constantly about inane objects Dad s billfold, mom s locket, mom s swords, etc, etc There is constant repetition running through every theme in the book, even down to repeating whole chunks from the first book I also found it v [...]


    3. Betrayals did what its title suggests Honestly, I expected much and it just left me disappointed.It felt like all the character had a pretty hard case of OOC plague and I can t say I liked any of them here Dru entirely lost her badassery and the tough girl from the first book disappeared and became a total weakling It felt like she had an identity crisis actually, which very well may have been true The only thing I thought was interestingly written at the beginning was the portrayal of depressi [...]


    4. It s as good as its prequel and is an easy read It makes you want to hunt for the third book at bookstores.


    5. I am enjoying this series despite the large amount of profanity Some of my questions were answered but mostly I gathered tons I enjoy the characters I like Dru and I am excited for her to Bloom and see what she is fully capable of I can t wait for the next book Now of have been thinking some about Christophe and it has spun a lot of questions in my mind At this point there might be some spoilersin the rest of my venting So I think it is obvious that Christophe had has some deep feelings for Dru [...]


    6. Like the first book, it is like 3.5 stars, with a little bit of benefit of doubt thrown in This book was just as fun, interesting, and as twisted as the first I enjoyed the plot, the universe, the crazy politics between the djampir and the wulfen I am suspicious of everyone, the situation is tense, and I don t even know who Dru should trust In this book Dru was much less bitchy, much accepting of support, and asked many questions, though she still needed to ask I am still annoyed with both g [...]


    7. I m not that good in english, so sorry I ll try here.Han I don t, know but I didn t like this book that much.I don t really think Dru is that badass girl Actually I think she s boring She s always complaining about her miserable life She is not the girl I thought she would be when I started to read this series The author criated a character that are so fucked in life that her weakness should make her stronger I think she should push herself , go after answers no matter what be that girl who does [...]


    8. I really, really enjoyed this Unlike Strange Angels it started with good momentum and kept it up throughout, incorporating some standout action scenes Dru was slightly down beat but I felt this was to be expected considering everything that s happened recently and gave it a sense of realism Christophe was still intriguing but I want to see of him in the next book otherwise I think it s just going to become annoying there are so many questions that need answering I absolutely loved how Graves pr [...]


    9. Dru is now at a Schola kind of a school for vampires and werwulfs learning the official curriculum on the species and trying to relax, which is kind of hard when a possible traitor is visiting you on the sly, and someone you previously thought was your enemy is trying to save your life Oh, and you re the only girl in a school full of really hot guys First world problems, man.More details about Dru s past is revealed in this book, not much at all, Lili St Crow is really stretching our patience on [...]


    10. It took me a week to finish this book School was a definite factor, but the plot also contributed to my slow completion It meandered in this one a lot of internal thoughts but no real action When the real action occurred, it was always sporadic, like a blur.Also, the writing style is beginning to irk me There is a lot of unnecessary cussing I know, teens cuss But I do not see the point in submerging what could be good writing in immature language Repetition was also pretty prevalent in this book [...]


    11. Betrayals is the second book in the Strange Angels series and picks up right where the series titled first book left off Dru and Graves have just arrived at the Schola Christophe sent them to, and it doesn t take long for Dru to get herself in to trouble Wulfen and djamphirs don t get along, add in super strength and fast healing with testosterone fueled teenage boys, and fights are a common occurrence Dru isn t one to back away from a fight, but she doesn t yet have the strength or healing powe [...]


    12. At the very end of the first book, Dru and Graves were picked up by a helicopter that would take them to a school Schola that was run by The Order.Well, they made it.To those who read the first book would also know that Dru is also a rare female djampir called the svetocha Unlike the werwulfen, djampir usually only have boy offsprings but that s not the only reason why female djampir are so precious to The Order When they bloomed , the svetocha would be stronger, faster and dangerous to a nosfe [...]


    13. Betrayals is the second installation of Lilith Saintcrow s Strange Angels books.I brought it home the day it came out Because wellI m cool like that and Barnes and Nobel is practically right next to my work.I liked seeing Graves transform into something substantial than the awkward geeky best friend that tags along because they re stubborn Quiet frankly, I m getting tired of those kinds of characters But that s another topic for another discussion Graves becoming the dom at the Schola kind of s [...]


    14. Betrayalscontinues the story of Dru Anderson with her escape from the Dakotas Dru and her loup garou friend, Graves are taken to an isolated scola, where Dru is the only female amongst djamphirs and wulfen There, Dru is to be protected from the vampires and werwulfen that want her dead Oh, and there is a traitor somewhereThe book started off a little slow for me, although it should not have Basically the prologue is the last chapter of the previous book which was exciting I found it a little rep [...]


    15. Dru Anderson s mother was killed, and now Dru s being hunted The Schola is supposed to keep her safe, but in a place full of djamphir and werwulfen, safe is a relative term especially considering there s an unknown traitor in the midst Meanwhile, Dru s own powers are getting closer to blooming , and she s been betrayed so many times she can no longer trust anyone especially not herself.The featured creatures in Betrayals are intriguingly disturbing, and bloody well creative, particularly the Bro [...]


    16. Betrayals is the second novel in the Strange Angels series by Lili St Crow A.k.a Lilith Saintcrow Lilith is one of my favorite authors, and I was shocked that I haven t read any of her YA novels yet I guess I just wasn t in a YA reading mood, but after reading the synopsis for this series, I had to pick it up I read Strange Angels book 1 and Betrayals book 2 within a day and a half I was hooked Strange Angels was a good read, but betrayals was amazing I heard Jealousy is even better I ll find ou [...]


    17. I ve had this book out from the library for awhile, and I kept delaying reading it because I wasn t that big of a fan of the first book I actually ended up finishing this one in a day It was a lot better than the first one, but there were still some things that I didn t entirely like about it If I could give half stars, I would have given it a 3.5.Dru is being whisked off to safety at the start of this book She is what is known as a svetocha It s very rare, and because of that, everyone either w [...]


    18. Betrayals is the second in this series about a teenage girl whose ex marine father taught her to fight the others , all the magical beings such as zombies, werewolves, and vampires that inhabit the shadows of our worldDru s life got turned upside down in the first book when she had to kill her father turned into a zombie by a bad vampire and was on the run with a boy from her high school who got bitten by a werewolf She gets saved from the bad vampire by christophe, a half human, half vampire wh [...]


    19. 2.5 no ugh, why do I always seem to find books with so much teenage angst Are all supernatural books involving females so whinny Whats wrong with having a young female character who can and does stand up for herself without having to have young boys fight over her while she plays helpless The two books that I have read of Lili St Crow have both fallen flat The writer repeats herself constantly I found myself flipping ahead just to skip over the main characters constant retelling of her lost chi [...]


    20. Even though it was definitely not one of the best books I ve ever read, I enjoyed Betrayals, than Strange Angels anyways.But there were a few things that got on my nerves I m kind of confused with the whole Graves Christophe thing I want to like Christophe, but his characterisation is seriously skewed One minute he s this dangerously attractive rebel who seems to really care about Dru, and the next he morphs into a complete jackass At the end of the book he was acting weirdly nasty creepy Also, [...]


    21. My biggest complaint with this book and the last, come to think of it , may be edit based than anything else.When you re writing, bits and pieces of ideas can sneak in here and there You go oh, this would be a great time to mention this little tidbit of knowledge and in it goes The problem is, sometimes, 20 pages later, you may go oh, this would be a great time to mention this little tidbit of knowledge all over again In the author s head, it s new it hasn t come up yet The author has been sitt [...]


    22. Betrayals is yet another kick butt book from the awesome Lili St Crow Yes, it is true I am becoming quite a fan of this series The prologue of Betrayals reminds us how Strange Angels ended This is definitely a series to read in the correct order You ll miss out on so much action packed fun if you skip ahead And indeed, if you read this review you will give yourself gigantic spoilers for the first book You have been warned.For those of you still with me, we meet Dru again as she takes up enforced [...]


    23. I really have mixed emotions about this book Although i did enjoy it, there were times i felt that i wasn t really getting anywhere While it eventually picked up pace towards the end, and then i couldn t put it down, i felt like Dru didn t really do a lot during the book She either spent her time in her room, alone, or with Graves I found i enjoyed the bits where Christophe was there the most He gave the book a freshness that sometimes wasn t there He made certain parts fun I hope to see him hav [...]


    24. Man I LOVED Betrayals I thought Strange Angels was pretty good descentbut Betrayals was incredible I did not want to put this book down My heart was racing right along with Dru s St Crow does an absolute fabulous job of allowing the reader to relate to and empathize with Dru She mixes the right amount of toughness and vulnerability to make these characters seem real, instead of the typical fearless, superhero type I like how she shows the inward struggle Dru constantly faces over recent events i [...]


    25. Of the three books in this series thus far, I think Betrayals is my favourite The story flow is not as slow as in the first book, there is a lot action and the narration of Dru s inner feelings about both the boys in her life sounds convincingly like the thoughts of a tough but confused teenager.However, all is not perfect, as is all too common these days First off, Dru s still being irritatingly obtuse in this book, as also in the third one, so maybe it s a personality flaw I m going to have t [...]


    26. I guess I would go 3.75 stars with this book I liked it better than Strange Angels I felt like happened in this book than in the first one In this book, Dru and Graves are placed in a Schola, ostensibly for their protection But it rapidly becomes clear that Dru is not safe, and she has no idea who she can trust I liked how this incarnation of the werwulf and nosferatu dhjampir mythologies are fleshed out particularly how the wulfen make consensus decisions in order to hunt in packs , though the [...]


    27. Fast paced, action packed, full of mystery and hidden secrets, you won t be able to put that book down Betrayals is the second engagement in the Strange Angels series and while I liked the first book, I LOVED the second book.First book ends when Dru gets to the Schola and the second books picks where we left off, Dru is in a Schola full of delinquent djamphir and wulfen teenage boys, and even though Christophe promised she would be safe there, something is wrong.Teachers won t let her learn figh [...]


    28. It was very upsetting to find a great book with a kick ass heroine and then move on to book two and said heroine is a dud Dru was depressed this whole entire book I mean poke out my eyeballs depressing I had to read this book in bits and pieces just so that I wouldn t get depressed In book one, Dru kicked butt She was trained by her father for just about anything In this book Dru was a lost little girl waiting for her knight in shining armor What The Hell Happened This whole book shouldn t have [...]


    29. Following the supernatural filled pages of Strange Angels, Betrayals was the perfect second addition to the series It s witty, action packed and the plot opens a can of worms that will have you on the edge of your seat.I didn t enjoy it quite as much as I did Strange Angels For a good chunk of the time I spent reading, it felt like a filler book something to add between main conflicts and plot changes But regardless, it held the same attitude and boldness that the first one had.Dru complained a [...]


    30. Short end of the month Review Well this book was a bit boring for sure Most of this book is the MC trying to make it through this School being the only girl surrendered by hot boys Lame You guys know how i feel about that shit Pass.Also, the title makes very little sense No one betrayals anyone in this book, unless i missed it, which i don t think i did There was so much action in book 1 as well as plot movement This book felt like just a bridge to get us to book 3.Book 2 syndrome strikes agai [...]
