Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

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

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.

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'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.

The only thing that saves Celia Graves from the same fate as others after a couple of magical bombs go off at a school she's trying to evacuate is the fact that she's got super healing from both her vampire and siren DNA. And that's only enough to slow the necro-disease down. There's a race against time to figure out what and how in time to prevent a full-out pandemic as more of these bombs go off around the country.

There's plenty of action, magic and some sexual tension in this fourth book about a bounty hunter who was half-turned into a vampire and is considered an abomination. It hasn't been all that long ago that she learned she's also a siren. The magical community is mostly in her corner as they learn more about her, but there are still a lot of problems with the perception and prejudices the police have of her.

Not only is the disease creepy, the authors have come up with an interesting delivery and source of the magic being used. The story delivers emotion on a number of levels including Celia's struggles with her attraction to both Bruno and John, the relationship with her alcoholic mother and her own vampire urges to name a few.

This was definitely a good solid story with characters it's easy to care about.

THE ISIS COLLAR was a fast-paced, multi-layered urban fantasy novel. It is the fourth book in the Blood Song series. Celia is a former bodyguard who is adjusting to life after surviving a vampire bite and becoming one herself and discovering that she is also part siren. In this episode, she has to deal with a magical plague that has been set off in schools and is killing the teachers and children who were there. She also has to deal with a witch who has stolen a very powerful artifact and who wants Celia dead.

Celia also has a variety of relationship issues. Her mother has escaped from the island of the sirens and returned home where she is resuming her life as an alcoholic. Her sister Ivy who died at eight and has been a ghost haunting Celia and her mother has learned to possess bodies and has taken over the body of a young friend of Celia's. Celia is also torn between her old love Bruno who betrayed her with another woman and her new love John Creede. Both men are powerful mages what want to have a relationship with her.

The story is packed with perilous situations. The action never stops. I really enjoyed this story which is told from Celia's point of view. Watching Celia struggle with both the large problems and the smaller personal problems was very engaging. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
