Review: Every other day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Every other day, Kali D’Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She argues with her father. 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.
  Right before starting this book I felt as if I were in a funk. I just couldn't get myself together enough to even start a book. Let alone finish one. Am I ever glad that I pushed on and picked up this book. I certainly never expected to get back in the groove as fast as I did. The book starts out with plenty of action. It kept me totally engrossed the whole way through. The storyline has such an unusual take on the supernatural realm and the abilities of the main character. The characters certainly have their hands full trying to figure out what's going on. The main character is a very strong willed, tender hearted and caring young lady who becomes extremely protective of the people whom she cares for. I really liked the on-again, off-again way her abilities manifest themselves. Love the way it's a cliff hanger and can't wait to read a follow up! If you're in a rut and need something lively to get you back on track then this is most definitely a good book to try.
