Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Cat Adams:
“Cat Adams is a visionary author, creating new worlds that are both strong and vividly drawn. Adventure and excitement at its best.”
—Yasmine Galenorn, New York Times bestselling author of the Otherworld series

“This series just keeps getting better, maintaining a delicate balance between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. The emotional components are just as strong as the action sequences, set against an increasingly interesting world.”
Publishers Weekly on Demon Song

“A warmly involving, action-packed yarn whose heroine is engagingly tough, vulnerable, principled and passionate in equal measure.”
—Kirkus Reviews on Demon Song

“This is a treat for urban fantasy fans who like smart, feisty heroines and complex, fast-paced stories.”
Library Journal on Blood Song

"Entertainment ignited!”
—RT Book Reviews
on Siren Song, 4 ½ stars, Top Pick!

Demon Song is a fantastic thrill ride from the very first page. Author duo Cat Adams once again prove why they’re at the top of the urban fantasy field. I just love how quickly I become absorbed into anything Cat Adams writes.”
ParaNormal Romance Reviews

“How many ways must I say how awesome this series is before everyone believes me? Suspense, drama, action and even a little romance thrown in just to spice it up a bit.”
Literaturely Speaking on Demon Song

For those who, like me, love this Urban Paranormal Genre crap, I cannot recommend the Blood Singer series highly enough!

Excellent story line and the twists and turns the plot line takes keep things interesting.

For readers of the first three books in this series, the story arc was closely wound around the unrolling discoveries of Cecelia Graves' unique human/Siren/vampire lineage and those were interesting in and of themselves, beyond each book's plotline. The authors have expanded into a wider world and transitions are always difficult; they have accomplished it well enough to make waiting for new twists and turns worthwhile in future.

But did they have to try out Zombies? Not just Cecelia as infected with Zombieism, but potentially the whole of Southern Cal?

The arch nemesis is Glinda the Witch and she moves oddly from omnipotence to clumsiness. I'd have hit 3 1/2 stars if that rating were possible. Cecelia is a character worth waiting on, but, please, lose the Zombies.

I strongly suggest you read the previous books in the series (Blood Song, Siren Song and Demon Song) prior to reading this installment.

While I enjoyed all the books in this series, I enjoyed this particular installment much more than the previous books. The darker storyline engendered a serious tone and feel.

Celia was a stronger person and a more focused heroine in this installment. Although, it irritated me that she hesitates to use her siren abilities in the face of mortal danger. It also irritated me that the author spends too much time on Celia's bloody milkshakes and nutrition.

In my review of the previous book, Demon Song, I commented that Celia was weak and at a disadvantage. Her reaction and response time to situations in her surroundings, were greatly stunted due to the fact that she hasn't had human blood either from the tap or bagged. Further, the author has limited the potential of the vampire species by making them crazed with bloodlust once they consume human blood. The vampires in Celia's world will always be out of control and unable to function in society which greatly hampers their potential.

I am not a fan of zombies, however, I greatly enjoyed this story. The ingenuity of the storyline serve to amplify its creativity and mystification; in addition to being jam-packed with lots of action, suspense and intrigue.

I recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and look forward to the next book Eldritch Conspiracy due out 2013.

I'm sorry; typically I enjoy writings from this author, but this addition is just slow and not well put together. I kept expecting the author to give me more or to have a better plot line then what was published, but for some reason this novel just falls very short of the mark. I would suggest that nobody pay full price for this novel and wait to get it at a discount before buying.

This installment of The Blood Singer Series starts with Celia at a school, where she tries to get them to evacuate the building. See Celia has been informed by Dottie that a bomb will go off in the school and if it does, really bad things will happen. Just as she's being escorted out of the building, Celia can feel the bomb going off. When she turns around, Celia sees that everyone is moving in slow motion. Thanks to her vampiric strength, Celia is able to get the principal out of the school. Once outside the building, the woman can move at normal speed again and between the two of them, they work to evacuate the building. With the adults working to get the children out of the school, Celia heads to the basement to investigate. There she finds another magical bomb, which also goes off.

For a couple weeks, nothing much seems to happen, except that Celia has a constant headache and a bruise on her leg which just won't heal. Turns out the bomb was a method of infecting everyone at the school with a fatal disease--M. necrose. This disease turns people into more or less zombies and Celia was infected with it. Celia knows enough people to get cured of it, but there are a whole lot of people turning up in hospitals with it. Not to mention that Creede goes missing, her alcoholic mother manages to escape from her prison on the Siren island and a witch has stolen an ancient artifact called the Isis Collar which conveys magic to the wearer.

Will Celia be able to save the world again? Will she find her mother? And what about Creede? Where did he disappear to?

THE ISIS COLLAR is nonstop action from the very first page all the way through the very last page.

Format: Paperback
Dottie Simmons a level eight unregistered clairvoyant warns half vampire-half Siren Celia Graves that a bomb has been planted in a school. Civic minded Graves asks Principal Sanchez to dismiss the kids but the school official says no as she sees no threat except for armed Celia. Desperate to save the children especially eight year old Alex with Siren blood, Graves calls her late former BFF Vickie's lover Heather Alexander to get the law enforcement official to evacuate the school that no longer had its magical shields deployed. Heather says she is unable to do so as security guard Jamisyn escorts Graves from the school. When the bell rings ending the day, the magic explodes leaving everyone inside except for Graves functioning in ultra -slow motion.

Graves is unaware she suffered injuries too as she has memory problems and cannot heal her wounds from the explosion. The real intent soon becomes clear when a zombie pandemic spreads from the school's ground zero to the entire country. Graves and the Feds search for an antidote to the plague and hunt the bombers while the heroine's personal relationships are a shamble as her vampire side, her alcoholic mother and the ghost of her sister who died when she was at eight years old make demands on Graves while her boyfriend has vanished.

The fourth Blood Singer romantic urban fantasy (see Blood Song, Siren Song and Demon Song) is a terrific entry as the frustrated heroine struggles with making sense of a chaotic world. The school scenario sets the pace of the strong storyline as Graves cannot persuade Sanchez of the pending peril. Series fans will appreciate this engaging entry, which climaxes nicely while also setting up the next thriller.
