WARNING: Under no circumstances should you read the following if you have not read the first two books in the "Strange Angel" series (and this review does contain spoilers of this book so if you don't want to it be wrecked for you, continue no further!).

Lili touches upon quite a few topics in this book that she doesn't in the others (or she tries to in the other books, but you know, characters get in the way, interrupting one another and everything... Ugh, darn characters!) and she fully explains these topics/ ideas, unlike in the other books, and therefore we aren't left questioning as much as we usually are *does happy dance*, especially from page 130 onwards. Combined with the pace of this story (which is super fast), I think what we might just have the best book in the series (even if it totally breaks your heart)!

In my review of "Betrayals" I said that I believed Ash to be the most intriguing character of the series and that still rings true. I just really, really, REALLY, want to know what his endgame is! In this book I thought that it was really nice to see him being able to communicate more and more (like when he kept pointing at the door and pointing at Dru meaning "Missy, you have got to get out of this room before the suckers decide to snack on you!"). Also, towards the very end of the book when he was in the informatory and his body kept shifting back and forth? My heart was so happy!

And like I mentioned earlier, this book will totally break your heart. For a number of reasons. If you are team one boy and read what happens between Dru and that boy, you will be totally happy, but then all of a sudden BAM!

Dru's life has never been quite normal, roaming from town to town with her dad hunting things that goes bump in the night. But her life changed completely when one night, her dad came back from a gig as a member of the undead, a zombie to be precise. Since then, she's been on the run, gathering friends but a lot more enemies on the way and she's fighting as hard as she can to keep her head out of the water - and her body out of the grave. With the help of Graves, Christophe and other wulfen boys, Dru made it to the Schola Prima, but the operative base of the Order isn't as safe as it was suppose to be, because someone is still trying to kill her.

Jealousy picked up a bit slowly for me, but once the action started, you were in for quite a ride! The series is all about secrets, treachery, betrayals and what fuels most of those "situations"? Jealousy. This round gave many answers to questions left open in the previous books. Through many flashbacks, we learn more about Christophe's relation with Dru's mother, Elizabeth's relation with Anna, August's past, why are there so few svetocha, why is Dru hunted that way. While all those questions were answered, many more remains and Dru is not out of trouble just yet.

I really love the characters on that series, Dru is always trying to be strong and fight off the world, but at some point she will break down, and she will have to relay on her very few friends to help her get out of some nasty situations. Graves is as lovely and all the while sarcastic as ever which is totally cute if you ask me. He likes Dru very much but is very awkward about it, it's quite charming. On the other hand Christophe is experienced and level-headed, and while we know he cares for Dru we can't quite grasp what his feelings really are and how deep they are.

I have just been introduced to the series, and have speeded through them with relish. This third book in the series was, if possible, even better than the second. The characters stay true to themselves, Graves is amazing and Dru is strong, Christophe is sooo sexy, and again we see lots of glimpses into Dru's life as a child and learn more about her mother. The book ended on a great cliffhanger, and I can't wait for the next one!

HASH(0xa57156c0) out of 5 stars Worth the Wait! Aug. 3 2010
By Archimedes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow. After waiting for MONTHS for this book, I finally got to read it and it was worth the wait. Jealousy was a fast-paced roller coaster with Dru's emotions and relationships.

In the book Dru is finally brought to the main schola where she will supposedly be safe. Unfortunately for Dru there simply isn't anywhere that is safe for her. The series continues to examine the complexities in the relationships between Dru , Christophe and Graves. I wish there was some resolution there but that will be for later books. Additionally, Lili brings more discussion Ash into the book. Dru brought Ash to the main schola and has a very maternal instinct toward him. Dru needs to be needed and Ash is the only one that truly seems to need her. Be ready for some interesting plot twists in this book because it will not end in the way you expect it to.

Jealousy is by far my favorite book so far in this series (see the Archives for a review of the first book in the series Strange Angels). It was so much faster than the other two books. Furthermore, as a reader you really feel the process of Dru blooming or going through a second puberty. She is very unsure of herself but is still trying to figure out who she is without everyone else. She has her moments where she seems weak or stubbornly strong. I believe that these traits will allow all readers to connect with her and understand the story in a first person manner. I give jealousy a 5 out of 5.

HASH(0xa63b433c) out of 5 stars Weeeelll........ Oct. 22 2010
By M. Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After the disaster that was 'Betrayals' I didn't know what to expect, but I bought the third book anyway. Well, I can say that it's an improvement over the second book, but not the slam-bam-awesomefest that was the first book. Here's a list of hits and misses.

Hits:

+Dru shops at Target! Knew I loved her for a reason.
+Dru's inner monologues are sharp and witty, often funny. Rather more reminiscent of the first book, which was nice.
+Christophe returns...halfway through the book, but it's still a plus.
+Graves showing some of his classic snark, and acting less like an alpha and more like the witty dork we all love. (Case in point: his scene with Anna had me in stitches and in serious need of a 'Team Graves' t-shirt.)
+Also, we learn Graves' first name.
+Dru kicking ass again was a welcome surprise.

Misses:

-WAY too many flashbacks
-Christophe sure took his sweet time getting back, didn't he? What the hell was he doing, sunbathing?
-Christophe and Dru. That's just creepy and disturbing on so many levels. Ick.
-Anna. Come on, we knew she was bad news in 'Betrayals'. Plus she's one-dimensional and uninteresting, making me not care one way or the other whether Dru beat her ass or not. Sergej is a worthy adversary. Anna is just badly written and lame. (It's almost like the author was picked on in high school by cheerleader and/or hates pretty girls.)
-Related to the above. There are NO female characters that are not a) evil or b) dead. I can't help but feel that if Dru had some sensible girlfriends, she wouldn't be such a mess all the time. Send for some of the wulfen girls we saw in the second book. ANYTHING. Lots of guys = one girl only works in shojo manga.
-Graves acting like an alpha. I LOATHE it. He acts as though he just drank a Big Gulp full of testosterone. Newsflash: Graves was awesome before he got all wolfish, he doesn't NEED to act like a macho jerk to get his point across.
-Nobody wondering about Graves until almost the end. *headdesk*

I await the next book with a due sense of wariness and hope. I hope Dru gets her stuff together and does what she needs to do, rather than angsting over boys. Svetocha or not, there's more to life.

HASH(0xa56cf99c) out of 5 stars Good addition to the series. April 14 2011
By daisypop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this one, probably more than I expected. I highly recommend this series for fans of the genre. The backstory is unfolding nicely, with enough explanations to keep readers of the first books happy. (Seriously, finally the story behind that darn owl... yay!)

My main complaint is that Dru cries. CONSTANTLY. Enough. already. While totally understandable in the first book, for her to continually dissolve in tears is getting old.

My last complaint is probably just a personal one. I am heartily sick of the ever-present love triangle that appears in far too many of these novels. Not speaking just of this series, but the "who will the heroine chose" scenario just feels totally overdone. I was disappointed that this seems to be headed that direction.

Still a highly entertaining read, and bring on the next book!

The continuation of the book series was good but still some things needed to be explained a little better while other things were over described. Some of the things needed to really tie the previous books together were missing and I feel that we waited too long for the " Blooming"". Then when it happened it was not really explained well.

HASH(0xa60b8a50) out of 5 stars a dark edgy fantasy - loved it Nov. 9 2010
By Mardel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If I hadn't already read Strange Angels and Betrayals, I probably wouldn't have looked twice at this cover for Jealousy. Thank god I already was looking forward to the sequel, because otherwise, I would never have picked this particular book with this cover up. The book was good. I am really enjoying this series It's first person narrative, with just the right amount of angst, first love confusion and strong girl trying to stay strong. Normally, I have no patience with angsty characters; there are a few exceptions, but in general I'm not fond of angsty characters. Lilith Saintcrow is one of the few authors that can write angst and still keep me interested in her novels. It must be the combination of angst and kick-ass that works for me. I've put down other books with a bit less angst. Ms Saintcrow strikes the right balance with her characters for me. From the first book to the the third, there's only been a passage of a few months - so Dru (main character) and Graves have been through quite a lot together in a short time. In the first book, Dru has to kill her zombified dad (hey - kill or be killed!) and through out the next few months has hardly had time to process this intense loss or the extreme changes that she's been through. Graves has had to deal with being changed into a wulfen, that's got to be tough for a teen boy. Jealousy deals with her delayed grieving as well as a whole slew of other mental leaps that Dru has to navigate. And Action - there's action as well - a couple of good fight scenes.Dru and Graves have finally made it to the Schola that she was originally supposed to go. But she's still in quite a bit of danger. She is one of the few female dhampir who have made it to the ripe age of 16, and the other female dhampir seems to have an unreasonable hate on for her....is it jealousy? Being the only female dhampir for years and years must make a girl feel very special, and now here comes Dru. Even though Dru and Graves are supposed to be safer now, Dru knows that she's still in danger. She can feel it. She's also been having a lot of flashbacks of previous scenes from her childhood. They all tie together by the end of Jealousy. There is an absolutely heartbreaking event in Jealousy - which I hope will be the focus of the fourth book. And one of Dru's enemies is finally dealt with, but there seems to be more. A few of my favorite characters from the past two books are still in Dru's life. Graves, of course; Ash the broken wulfen who seems to have formed an attachment to Dru; Dibs from the other schola (school) and Christophe. Although I have to admit here, that Christophe is not one of my favs. In fact, I find him, and his feelings for Dru just a bit creepy. He's way older than her, knew her mom and yet...Creepy. There are a few good things happening for Dru. Her relationship with Graves is progressing in a first love, awkward way. She's learning that she can make friends with some of the boys. She's learning a little more about her heritage, and putting two and two together - fitting some of the puzzle pieces of her past into place. I'm looking forward to reading more of Dru's story. I'd like to hear a little more about Graves and his past also. Lili St. Crow is great at painting pictures with words. She's very good with dialogue, especially the different speaking patterns of a young girl, a teen boy, the wulfen, and the rather stuffy dhampir who have "been around" for a while. She's one the authors that can write a story where you can just picture the teen really saying the words. The narrative is also something that I enjoy from Lili St. Crow. She's good at all the little details - such as the way the hair changes with the moods of the dhampir, the little sounds the come and go, the tastes and smells of things. I think the word I'm looking for is atmosphere - she paints a wonderfully atmospheric picture with her words
