I am not sure how I feel about this book. I adore the author's Savage series, but this one had me confused from the very get go. Way too many POV's left me reeling. At first it seemed POV's were separated by different chapters, but then I started noticing a double space between paragraphs was all that separated them. So to say I was confused is an understatement. Why the need for so many POV’s? I see that the author wanted to get many view points across, but 2 POV’s is plenty. More than that makes a story hard to follow. Well in my opinion it does. It may be different for others. Another thing that had me confused was the back and forth between the past and present. I never really understood it or its need to be done. Too many times I was rolling my eyes each time Julia ‘recalled’ a conversation with someone. I knew then we would be taking back in time to hear what went on. Only to find it wasn’t that relevant. I understand that the author was probably going for the whole ‘flashback’ scenes but to me the story didn’t need it. What did I like? I loved Julia. I hurt for her when her husband was killed and I hurt when she was kidnapped…many times throughout the book. Each time was just when she was becoming acclimated to her surroundings. Each time she had to learn who held her captive and what they wanted from her. But bless her heart, the girl was like a fainting goat every time she felt threatened. Did I like the story? Sure I did. Was it my favorite of the year? Nah. But it was good and I enjoyed the storyline. There was just those couple of things standing in its way to make it a really good read. Those few things had me wanting to stop at 80 pages in. But I powered through and enjoyed it. I was not fond of the multiple love interests but I really want to see what develops between Julia and some of the guys. I had high hopes for William, but found myself leaning towards Scott in the very end. So here’s to Blood Song and to the hope that no more guys start vying for Julia’s affection! A girl can only take so much attention. *snickers*

Very good book and keeps you guessing what will happen to the main character Julia next. The first book is 600+ pages. So much happens in those pages it's crazy. I also purchased the second book, was slightly disappointed because it was only 176 pages but still a great continuation. I can't wait for the third one to come out and what could possibly come next!

Great spin on a paranormal tale.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT BN DOES NOT ALLOW THEIR USERS TO EDIT THEIR REVIEWS WHEN THEY MAKE A MISTAKE. I ORIGINALLY POSTED MY REVIEW AND IT ACCIDENTALLY WENT UP AS A 1 STAR, AND BN WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO CHANGE IT, THOUGH I CALLED THEM ABOUT IT. I WAS TOLD TO CREATE A NEW USERNAME AND RESUBMIT. SO HERE GOES: Blodgett has broached the vampire/were genre in her latest novel, Blood Singers, giving readers a unique perspective of the two factions. She does a superb job presenting each distinct group within her novel, fleshing them out to the point that they become almost tangible. The characters seem to leap off the pages as the story unfolds, diving deeper into the past while focusing on the present and future to come. Blodgett uses a wonderful technique in her storytelling, focusing on the present, but giving the reader small glimpses into the past as well. This allows two different stories, two different worlds, if you will, to co-exist as Julia deals with the present, the revelation that vampires and weres do exist, and her remembrance of the past, what seems like a lifetime ago when Julia was carefree and deeply in love. The suspense builds as the reader is given small glimpses into past events, piecing them together in order to figure out how Julia came to be where she is when the story opens. From the very beginning, the reader is cast deep into the action of the story as the vampires and weres go to war over blood, but it isn’t until Julia’s background is laid bare for the reader that all the pieces begin to fit together. Julia is a very strong, resolute character. Though she is scared and longs for her life that once was, she does not lose faith or breakdown. Instead, she takes a stand against both factions, and though she is only one against many, she does not back down. I really liked this about Julia and was excited that Blodgett chose to create such a strong female lead. After the loss of her husband, friends, and life as she knew it, it would have been understandable if Julia gave in to the forces around her, but her spunk and constant fight to maintain control of her destiny made her a very well rounded character that captures the readers’ attention. Blodgett’s explanation of the sub-human group, the Singers, was especially intriguing and eye opening. I enjoyed the descriptions of their abilities and how they fit into the world around them, and I also enjoyed getting to know the vast array of characters that set the stage for this intriguing novel. Complete with a twist at the end that leaves readers yearning for more, Blodgett has written another masterpiece, and I cannot wait to learn more about the groups and Julia’s plight in the next novel.

Can someone tell me whats going on in this book? Im not sure if her moments with jason are flashbacks, or a different dimension when she sleeps? Who are william and pierce; i know they are vampires, but why do they need julia? There is not enough detail in most parts of this book, or others, like after prom night, give a BIT TOO MUCH detail. Can someone explain the story to me? Reply to brittanyspaniellover. Thanks

I have to admit, this wasn't the easiest read for me, though I did enjoy it. There are quite a few different pov's that really had me distracted a lot. The storyline itself is great and even the characters are good. I'm going to continue reading the series, because now I'm super interested in finding out what happens next. This book will be recommended, but with a word of caution, only because of the multiple pov's.

Overly ridden with cliches, bad plot, poor style, and overall poor writing, Blood Singers was a major disappointment. The sectioning was awkward and, at times, ranging from so unnecarrily blunt to so completely out of the blue. Julia Caldwell faints often, is prone to stockholme syndrom, and has a knack for frequently getting kidnapped. Oh, and she's a queen or chosen one for three different, opposing groups. Almost every male character that has any importance to the book either falls in love with her or wants her in that "let's be more than friends" kind of way, leaving us with a grand total of at least 6 guys who need her to be his wife or life long partner. Meanwhile, everyone wants to use her for their own devices while Julia either sulks and wants to die or is trying to convince herself she could be content with her captors. The dialogue is choppy in parts, and the diction often feels antiquated, like it belongs in a 19th or early 20th century novel or setting instead of a modern one. If you're going to read this, be prepared for lack luster writing, plotting, and planning. This is one of those books that is clearly free for a reason. This book had so much potential to be an amazing self discovery and fate vs free will kind of story, but it completely fails to come close to any of that potential greatness.

I personally could not finish this book. I found this book confusing and lacking of back story. I had a hard time understanding the concept the author was trying to make and by the time I finally understood the story it was half over. There are to many players bidding for one person, and way to many POV. When the author separated the POV by chapters it wasn't confusing but then she started to separate POV in the middle of the chapter which left questions. The author fails to explain in the beginning of the book why Julia is remembering the past, while jumping between being held by vampires and remembering the end of school and death of her husband. The book is to confusing and not worth the time. I say don't both wasting your time. I am glad I didn't finish now I won't have to finish book 2 and 3 to figure out this author has no clue where she was going with this book and was writing it on a whim.
