Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Celia Adams, bodyguard, part siren, and emphatically not fully vampire, is competent without being perfect; she’s still struggling with the balance between her supernatural abilities, human life, and a high-impact job. Celia is called upon by her aunt, who is the queen of the sirens, to act as her cousin Adriana’s bodyguard during Adriana’s wedding. Adriana is marrying the head of a small European country, there’s a conspiracy afoot, and Celia’s presence is necessary to get to the bottom of the matter—at least according to a prophetic vision. As part of the bridal party, she’s thrust into the whirlwind of royal socializing, and it’s entertaining to watch her learn to balance the expectations of a royal family and the rather-violent aspects of her job; Celia is refreshingly practical in the light of the pressures brought to bear on her. The book is a light, not-too-demanding thriller, with a few moments of nail-biting tension. The supporting cast is delightful as well, including Celia’s multitalented tailors. --Regina Schroeder

Review

“Adams takes creepy to a whole new level with this intense and enthralling adventure. Urban Fantasy doesn't get much better than this!” ―RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars, Top Pick! on The Isis Collar

“Fast and fun reading, with enough complexity in plot and characters to keep readers engaged from book to book.” ―Booklist on The Isis Collar

“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. . . . With Cat Adams I know that my interest will be held and my expectations exceeded before even opening the cover.” ―TeensReadToo (Gold Star award) on Demon Song

I have never written a review before but when I woke up at 6am and couldn't go back to sleep because I was so upset with this book, I just had to get it out of my system.

I absolutely love thiis series and actually went back and reread all the previous books to get myself back into the whole mood for the new book I had been waiting and waitng to resume the love triangle and delve further into the hot chemistry between them. I have never been so disappointed in my life! All the books led up to this wonderful attraction and angst between which of the two men to chose. (And I was rea!lly pulling for Creede)!! There were incredibly hot kisses and attraction and I couldn't wait to see which way this was going to go.

Well guess what? You get nothing. Actually less than nothing. In the beginning of the book one is already kicked to the curb and she wakes up in bed with the other. Seriously?? This is what we get? There is no lead up, no romance, no insight into her choices and not even a kiss. In fact, you have to just assume they had sex as there is NOTHING! Throughout the book this is one more mention to her waking up in bed with him but absolutely no real relationship development or background or insight at all.

The storyline itself was as good as ever, but the handling of the personal relationships in the storyline made me feel so cheated. I put the book down after the beginning and had to go back 3 times just to get myself to even finish it.

I don't know how the author can even fix this but I sure hope there is a way or else I am done.

***This review contains details that some may consider SPOILERS***

I pre-ordered this book several months ago because I love this series and wanted the book the second it was available. The intricate action that is a trademark of this series is here; Adams manages to write interesting plots that don't dissolve into convoluted messes that I think are common in urban fantasy. In this book we travel with Celia as a bodyguard/member of the royal siren wedding party. In her last book, The Isis Collar, Celia fought zombies, this time she is fighting corrupt politicians and anti-siren hatemongers. The action is detailed and always relevant to the plot.

What disappointed me was the semi-resolution of the love triangle between Celia, Bruno and Creed. After four books of confusion, sexual tension, past history and betrayals I was expecting a lot more. One of the characters is essentially dealt with in a flashback and then her "pick" is bedded without any resolution of past issues. I actually skipped back and re-read the first two chapters to see if I missed anything - I did not. I confess that I feel cheated and somewhat confused that such an important element of the past books felt thrown together.

What I really enjoyed was the treatment of female characters in this novel. Many authors struggle to write women who maintain their integrity and strength from book to book. The Adams writing duo writes both Celia and the women around her with a great deal of skill. Celia remains tough, loyal and a bit of an emotional time bomb. Her friends rally time and time again to support and challenge her. Although I found myself with a strong desire to shake dear old Gran, I certainly can't complain that she is a weak character.

Will I buy the next book? Absolutely. I just hope that the authors put more effort into Celia's love life or just skip it altogether.

I've read and enjoyed ALL of this series as well as all the books the duo produced. With that said I was pleased to see a new book out that I completely missed. Price: Almost ten bucks. Ok. Well, I enjoyed all the other books I assumed the price was worth it. Boy was I mislead.

From what I remember on the Isis Collar the rivalry between Bruno and Creede was going strong and both were equal contenders for Celia.

SPOILERS:

No, in The Eldritch Conspiracy it is Bruno who takes center stage. Creede is out of the picture due to an argument. The explanation was so vague yet heated and hurtful, full of jealousy and pride . . I *almost* thought I missed a book between Isis Collar and this one. Nope. All the action happened in the past, was explained but not in depth, no flash backs, no reason why once Creede is out, and Bruno is back in. Heck, why not a new guy. .. Why back to Bruno?

The whole books plays out that way, everything already happened. Her receptionist is now getting married. The professor has had Bruno under his wing for awhile. Ok, so time has passed. But the way everything unfolded just came off poorly written. I wasn't happy.

For lack of a better way to put it. . . The story was boring. Everything is explained and detailed. Names, places, etc. etc. No action where I'm hanging on to my chair. An assassination attempt? Terriorists? All exciting but the writing fell so flat, I could care less what happened next. The demon brought forth in the circle. . . Now that could have been really exciting. Instead Celia is on her knees praying and a dragon demon is threatening, the angel guy has a sword, but no battle. All it's about is the priest hitting the circle with holy water. ?? How exciting is that?
