In Celia Graves's world, vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells. But Celia thought she was an ordinary human, albeit one with a clairvoyant best friend and a ghostly little sister.
The vampire attack that made Celia an Abomination forces her to take food in liquid form and gives a whole new meaning to the word "sunburn." She's slowly adjusting (therapy sessions and all) when she discovers that the attack awakened a hidden part of her heritage: Celia is part Siren, able to enthrall men—and enrage women.
Her best friend's murder is unsolved; the cops think Celia should be in jail or staked; and her old lover, mage Bruno DeLuca, has something important to tell her. To top it all off, Celia's been summoned to the Sirens' island.
Celia Graves has more than one enemy. Some of them want her blood. Some of them want her soul. All of them want her dead.
Siren Song, Book Two in the Blood Singer series, is another thrilling paranormal fantasy from bestselling author Cat Adams—an action-packed follow-up to Blood Song.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
Still recovering from the attack that left her neither vampire nor human in June 2010's Blood Song, professional bodyguard Celia Graves must also cope with the discovery of her siren heritage, which comes with unexplored powers, a family she knows nothing about, and yet another set of enemies. Even as she fights in court for the right to be free, insisting that she won't become a mindless killer like other vampires, she has to dive headfirst into siren politics, outwit a demon bent on revenge, and unravel a plot against the king of Rusland. When even the protagonist admits she's been reduced to reacting to a constant stream of troubles, there may be a little too much going on, but Adams deftly juggles the various story threads, maintaining a good balance of action, character development, mystery, and magic.
Another toss-up between 3.5 and 4 stars. Overall, this was an interesting story. I'm pretty much hooked on the series now. I didn't get as much Rachael Morgan this time around as I did Bo from the Lost Girl TV show, which is still a very good thing.
I read this an e-book and I have to honestly say I was not happy when the book ended. I wanted more. On to the next book in the series!
I recommend this book.
Well written with a cohesive universe. Very good read.
