I really enjoy Jennifer Lynn Barnes writing she is a very talented writer She has the rare ability to make her books almost seem poetic at times and I love that I love how beautifully they flow The story lines never seems forced or rough They are always original and well thought out Her latest book Every Other Day was no exception to her amazing abilitiesThis was such an unusual story Very different from others out there right nowKali is a demon hunter one that every other day she is human with all the traits and characteristics that come with being human but after so many hours she transforms into a kick butt demon slayer with supernatural abilities and a hunger to kick some demon butt along the wayShe learns a lot about herself in this book who and what she is Where she came from and what exactly her purpose is hereThis book was completely fast paced it seemed like before I knew it I was completely immersed in the story and then in a blink I was doneThis did end with some unanswered uestions and with a little bit of heartache and left you wondering where the story was going to go from here but I think that will be a good thing I think it will leave it wide open for a seuel which is something I would really like to see and read I would love to watch Kali s character grow and see what is in store for herI think Barnes has the beginning of a great uniue series that will be like nothing else out there right now and many readers will really enjoy

Ays she is practically indestructibleBut when Kali notices a mark on a popular girl at school she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these unworldly beings And she knows she has only twenty four hours to save herThere's only one problem it's the wrong twenty four hour.

Review originally published on The Book Smugglers Just like Thea I am in panic mode in this all in attempt to read ALL THE BOOKS before 2011 closes so that I can come up with the most fair and informed Best of 2011 list as possible Unlike Thea though I have ZERO discipline and instead of catching up with the books that have come out early in the year and have been languishing in my TBR pile I am reading books that are not going to be out till the end of the year Every Other Day is one of them and I read it because the premise sounded so good and sometimes you must really follow your instincts TBR pile be damned sorry TBR pile I do love youEvery Other Day is set in a world where Charles Darwin s famous voyage to the Galapagos spawned not only the beginning of the theory of Evolution but also revealed to the world the existence of creatures hitherto thought to be merely mythical like Dragons Chupacabras and Hellhounds amongst others These days most of them have been catalogued studied and some are even protected species despite their obvious threat to humankindKali D Angelo is your regular 17 year old human girl Or mostly Because every other day she is something else something else that as far as she is aware hasn t been catalogued or studied Something else that is powerful super strong nearly indestructible and moved by the need to hunt and slay other preternatural creatures She s been keeping this a secret since she was 12 and without knowing WHAT she is she has felt apart and lonely for ages She has no friends barely communicates with her father and mostly goes through the motionsOn one of the days she is human Kali notices that Bethany a girl from her school has been contaminated by a Chupacabra a powerful parasite whose mark means death to any human Moved by instinct and her knowledge that at dawn she will be than human and will be able to kill the creature Kali manages to transfer the mark to herself opening up a can of worms by doing so First of all when dawn comes and she is not human any not only the creature seems to be a perfect fit heightening her powers but through the Chupacabra she is also able to psychically connect to another person who seems to know what she is a guy named Zev Unfortunately for her the presence of the Chupacabra at their school was not a random accident and soon Kali and her new found friends Bethany and Skyler who is a bit psychic find themselves at the centre of a scientific conspiracyEvery Other Day is a cool mixture of Urban Fantasy and Science Fiction and it has a lot going for it The pacing is incredible with non stop action the whole story takes place over the course of merely two days The twists keep coming and the sense of danger is present throughout The author does not shy away from it there are never cop outs and the story is much darker and much violent than I anticipated it would be A lot of ParanormalFantasy YA these days deals with supernatural creatures but they are usually de fanged beyond recognition Not here whatwho Kali is on her non human days is a wondrous powerful truly scary thingThe premise itself is an interesting one because it adds not only tension with Kali usually waiting for her non human days to be able to use her powers but also gravitas to her arc every day she literally dies She is never fully human nor is she that other thing She is not only different but she feels differently every other day This dichotomy the moral conundrums about her humanity or lack of she finds herself grappling with are fascinating and mostly well explored by the storyWhat I loved the most about the book though were the three female characters and their relationship with each other They are three fantastic girls with different personalities and motivations They exist on their own grounds and I loved how they are not framed by their relationships with boys I am sure that Skyler with her psychic powers is supposed to be darling of the story but Bethany the popular cheerleader was awesome She is not exactly the nicest person around and I loved her to bits because she had many other facets that were slowly revealed without making her any less popular or demoting her from her top place at school A lot of times I feel that the Popular Cheerleader has to be brought down in order to grow as a character and I really appreciated that Bethany went through stuff without having to lose part of who she isOn the down side there are three things that kept Every Other Day from being the excellent read it could have been1 The inordinate amount of repetitious inner monologue Kali constantly repeats how people like me are followed by a breakdown of her abilities over and over again I get it I understand that this works as a means to create an identity for herself but it is really really tiresome 2 The romance Calling the relationship between Kali and Zev a romance is almost a misnomer because it is so secondary to the plot as to make it almost an after thought but there were things about it that gave me pause When Kali finds out what she is she also finds out that her species comes in pairs and this brings an almost immediate connection with Zev who is supposedly her other half I felt uncomfortable about what seemed a glaring absence of any uestioning whatsoever about this obvious lack of choice Having said that I though the resolution for their connection to be excellent and I believe there is scope for growth and discussion in future books3 The ending and how it connects with the overall world building Without spoiling the ending brought forth revelations about certain things and about the nature of certain people that it was unnecessarily convoluted This is very unfortunate as up to that point I was actually digging the worldbuildingDespite these criticisms I actually uite enjoyed reading Every Other Day and thought it was a solid albeit flawed debut to a series that has a lot of potential for growth Here is hoping

    35 stars Much better than I thought it would be In fact the blurb didn't make me want to read it at all If it weren't for the fact that I really enjoy Barnes other series Raised By Wolves I wouldn't have even bothered with this one But couple that with the fact that it was one of the only things available from the library and I decided to give it a chance In the end it wasn't awesome but it was an interesting mix of paranormal an
