Strange Angels - St. Crow,  Lili 2 stars for the first half of this book, 3.5 for the second half. It got off to a really, really slow start, and I almost stopped reading several times. I'm glad I stuck with it though, because things really picked up in the last third or so when a third character finally enters the picture, and I think the next book will probably be better due to the fact that it will hopefully involve more than two characters.Side note: I found a lot of the language she used to describe the physical characteristics of character #2, Graves, borderline offensive. She refers to him as a "half-breed Asian," and goes on and on about which physical characteristics he did and didn't inherit due to his mixed genetics using really questionable taste.
