From my blog On Starships and Dragonwings

Blade Song by J. C. Daniels is an urban fantasy novel that follows the investigations of Kit Colbana when a powerful were-cat's nephew goes missing and Kit must deal with allies, enemies and her own emotions to find the boy before it's too late for him and therefore her as well. No one said working with shifters was a good idea....
I was in the mood for urban fantasy a while ago and went through Netgalley to find some new novels that needed some promotion. Blade Song looked like your typical kick-butt female urban fantasy, but turned out to be much more familiar than I really expected. Urban fantasy is definitely starting to get a bit stale as a genre with the same premises being used over and over, but Blade Song went beyond that in emphasizing the things that bother me about the genre right now....

Title: Blade Song
Author: J. C. Daniels
Pages: 261
Genre-ish: Urban Fantasy
Rating: ★★★☆☆ - interesting plot, major annoyances
Setting: The typical urban fantasy setting with vampires, were-shifters, witches and amazon descendants living in the open or in secret of our modern day world.
Premise: Kit Colbana is a half-breed amazon who is now working as a mercenary/investigator and is asked/commanded by the leader of the were-cats to find a missing nephew. The boy's disappearance starts to have a few too many coincidences around it and you'll never guess the ending!
Strengths:
The writing was fairly compelling and interesting. When annoying things weren't happening I definitely wanted to keep turning those pages!
I liked the way witches were portrayed: much more Wiccan than dark and evil as they often are portrayed in urban fantasy.

I received this from Shiloh Walker, Inc. for my honest review.

I was so excited when I realized I got accepted by the publisher to review this book. I didn't think that I would get it. J Now that, that's off my chest I can get to the book.

Kit Colbana is an assassin and also a half-breed. She is part human and part Aneira. Aneira are women warriors with magical powers, which is so flipping awesome. Kit loves doing her job, but is weary when Damon asks for her help because you can't trust Were creatures. Her only weakness is kids and everyone knows it. So before she knows what she is doing she is agreeing to help Damon find Doyle. Afterwards she finds out if she doesn't find him, she's dead. So Kit and Damon go and try to find him together. This leads to a lot of dangerous situations as well as sexual tension.

I thought this book was going to be young adult but it's what they call new adult...I think. Which I was pretty excited about. After I started reading it, I was really glad that it wasn't young adult because let me tell you. WOW

This book was so flipping awesome. It has a little bit of everything for everyone. It has assassins, shape shifters, witches, and vampires. Oh and the sexual tension was out of the world, I loved every minute of it.

Kit isn't one of those girls that say that they are good and turns out that they aren't. She is the real deal. She kinda comes on strong and I don't think a lot of people will like her. I didn't like her at first because she was too blunt. As the story moved on she started growing on me. She's just so headstrong.

Damon is just a bunch of hotness!!! He is a Were and no one knows what he really is, they just assume.

Overall this is one of the best so far this year for me. It feels like this book was made for me. LOL I can't wait to buy this. :D

Format: Paperback
Every reader has a few of those books- the ones that are, objectively, good, but not great; that have some notable highs, but have some notable problems; but that, for whatever reason, just strike a chord. `Blade Song' was one of those books for me.

An urban fantasy/paranormal romance, `Blade Song' centers around Kit Colbana, a private investigator who is coerced into searching for a missing shapeshifter teenager. Although Colbana has some tricks up her sleeve, and is descended from a race of Amazonian-like warrior women, she is far from superhero material. She isn't super strong or fast, isn't a fighter versed in 15 different martial arts, and isn't a genius who can immediately solve a problem. She is interestingly flawed and imperfect, but dedicated to her job, and good at the investigative aspects of PI work. Her counterpart is Damon, a member of the local shifter group who is shadowing her on the case. And just as Kit is not the stereotypically perfect heroine, Damon isn't the perfect hero. He's got the physical gifts of a shifter, but initially comes off as aggressive and nasty. It isn't banter and poorly-disguised-love-at-first-sight for Kit and Damon. There is animosity, anger, and the problems that one would expect from two people who don't trust one another, but who are forced to work together in a situation where a mistake by one will endanger the other.

Although not dark and angsty, the plot is also more realistic than many urban fantasies I've read. The missing teen's reasons for running away, and the problems he may have encountered, aren't pretty and aren't glossed over. The beginning of the book gave me hope for something that was a cross in tone between the light and easy story telling found in most UF/PR, and the gritty realism in darker UF/noir mysteries.
