"A contemporary Buffy."—Publishers Weekly

"Readers will devour this fantastic series starter. ...Barnes brings her characters to life in stunning detail. This is not your usual paranormal fare."—RTBook Reviews

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,

Review:

"Barnes (the Raised by Wolves books) delivers a gory urban fantasy that balances confident world-building, action, and strong character development. The sharp-tongued 16-year-old narrator, Kali D'Angelo, wields strange, superhuman powers, but only every other day, during which times she secretly goes out and slays various supernatural creatures. (In this world, such creatures were discovered by Charles Darwin and have long been known to human society.) On one of the days when she's merely human, Kali discovers that her uptight cheerleader classmate, Bethany, has the always-fatal mark of the chupacabra and contrives to transfer the mark to herself. The combination of Kali's powers and the supernatural creature is bad enough, but it's soon clear that there are rogue scientists and other dangers to both girls and a third classmate, the potentially psychic Skyler. The conspiracies and supernatural threats vie for time with lone-wolf Kali's attempts to deal with two potential friendships; all of the conflicts come to a head in an extended but gripping climax. Fans of adult-oriented urban fantasy should enjoy this as much as teens looking for a contemporary Buffy. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Lieder Madchen, October 5, 2011 (view all comments by Lieder Madchen)
This book was great! It is full of twists and turns and surprises that keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I was never quite sure what was going to happen next and the plethora of new magical creatures was wonderful. I don't think I have ever read a novel with chupacabras before.

Kali is a fascinating heroine. The title, Every Other Day, refers to her strange transformation from human to hunter of supernatural creatures. One day she is human, but the next she is not. She doesn't know what she is or how she came to be that way, but in her efforts to protect a girl she doesn't even like she may find answers about herself.

There is a little bit of romance in this book, but it is peculiar to say the least. Zev, the love interest, is just a voice in her head for most of the novel I can't wait to see how their relationship develops in book 2, and there has to be a book 2.

My favorite character of the story was Skylar. She is unfailingly cheerful and a bit odd, with an endless supply of brothers with useful life skills. (A lawyer who can steal cars, an FBI agent, a veterinarian, etc.) Her little sister's survival guide made me smile, especially when applied to zombies.

This book was fast-paced and interesting with a bittersweet ending that left me begging for more. I would recommend this book to lovers of strange creatures and wild fights.
