Let's start with the obvious - the cover is SPECTACULAR!! Without knowing what the book is about, the cover itself makes me want to buy it!
This book was so weird it was awesome. Kali, the main character is a demon hunter one day and a normal human girl the next. It is continuous torture. She feels the need to hunt and kill one day and go to school and be normal the next. She can feel the minutes and hours counting down as if the clock was in her bones. She doesn't really know her background of where she came from just that her dad has a don't ask, don't tell policy that makes Kali feel alone.
When she notices a tattoo mark on a popular girl's back that signifies she will die soon, she makes a hasty decision to help her by putting her own life at risk. And the fun begins. She is thrown into the mix with new people, those who want to help and those who don't. She finally gets some insider information about her own history too.
I seriously LOVED this book!! Finally a book I was really looking forward to that did not let me down!!
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.
