Jennifer Lynn Barnes - Every Other Day

Title : Every other day
Release date : December 27, 2011
Publisher : Egmont
Genre : Young Adult / Paranormal

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.

Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a fabulous paranormal young adult novel; this book had me from the start.

Kali is one hell of a butt-kicking young woman, for the last five years she is human one day and supernatural the next. The urge to hunt evil is strong when she is not human, so the moment she sees a death mark on the back of one of her fellow students, she has to step in and save this girl even if that means putting her own life on the line.

During the whole book we are side by side with Kali when she slowly discovers the truth about her own past and the origins of her supernatural talents. Because of her condition Kali doesn’t have friends, but that won’t stop Skylar, the weird psychic girl and Bethany, the young woman she saved to help her on her journey.

Skylar had me laughing quite often in this book, she has a great personality and her comments were hilarious. The sacrifice she made really got to me and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

This novel is well written with great characters, fabulous storyline and interesting creatures. I enjoyed this book so much, that I’m really curious about her other books, so I’m definitely going to check out her other series/books.

You convinced me, this one is on my wishlist. Not a typical YA book I guess.
