Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - Review

Meet Kali, a regular 16 year old …every other day. But Kali lives in a world where preternatural creatures roam. And every second day, she hunts and kills demons and other supernatural creatures. Every second day she is not human, and very hard to kill.

Trouble starts when she notices a tattoo on one of the cheerleaders. Kali knows this means the cheerleader was bitten by a chupacabra, and she’ll be dead in 24 hours. She wants to help, and lures the chupacabra into herself assuming she will easily get rid of it once she is no longer human. But she assumed the chupacabra will work on her like any other human, which it doesn’t. And to make it worse, the chupacabra starts to talk to her. Even has a name…

Reminiscent of Buffy, this is an all-action adventure that I could no put down. The interactions between the characters are as funny, the twists interesting, and the ending unpredictable. Loved it!

Can't wait for this one. I really liked her Raised by Wolves series.

While Every Other Day started out a bit slow the story is so worth it. Jennifer Lynn Banes has a way of creating a world you can get lost in. Kali is a human girl who goes to school except that Every Other Day she is something more. Every Other Day she can fight supernatural beings that stalk the night. Also if she doesn’t hunt them then they will come after her, so what is a girl to do? Kali’s mom left her when she was young and she hides her extracurricular activities from her father. He is a scientist who is so caught up in his life that he doesn’t see that Kali just wants him to notice her and ask her what is going on in her life.
