BLOOD SONG is the work of amazing duo C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp, writing as Cat Adams. In this story we meet Celia Graves, a bodyguard to the rich and famous who, although she is a regular human, knows about ghosts, demons, and other types of supernatural beings. While on assignment guarding a prince from a small European country, she is left wounded from a vampire attack. This attack leaves her as an Abomination, not really vampire but not plain vanilla human, either. Celia must figure out her new limits, as well as destroy her maker before he can gain control over her - although this is the least of her worries. Action, twists, and turns abound in this wonderful new series. The story flows like magic and the characters are very exciting. Celia Graves is definitely a character to watch. For readers who are familiar with C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp, I think they'll be surprised at this new take on the old supernatural creature story. For those who are not familiar with them, I believe they'll go back and find their other stories just to get another taste of such wonderful storytelling. This book is what urban fantasy is all about: fast-paced, mysteries galore, and a main character who is stubborn beyond belief even in the face of stronger creatures. Reading this book was like going on a roller coaster ride where the lever broke off and they can't find the off switch. Cat Adams has crafted a story that will have others taking notice and scrambling to craft a story just as good. I think this will be one of the best series we'll see this year, and I would expect nothing less from the dynamic duo called Cat Adams.

First let me just say the cover drawing reminds me of Lisa Marie Presley for some reason. Anyway, my review is based purely on entrainment factor alone. This book consistently kept my interest and attention. It's very hard for me to enjoy a story when religious relics are the focal point for repelling "evil". However, the author did a fabulous job of reeling me into this story from the start and after a while those relics didn't much matter to me. Sirens aren't included in many urban fantasy series, so having Sirens involved in this novel was a treat. Actually I haven't seen anything to do with Sirens since Charmed went off the air. Imagine a world where creatures of nightmares are all out of the closet and roaming the city streets. Now imagine these creatures aren't even house-broken and tamed. They are ferocious and don't even know the meaning of civility. Society is gripped with so much fear that bottles of holy water blessed by "true believers" are flying off the shelves. Priests are no longer regular ordain folks but actually trained warriors. However, exciting this story was, it was not without its faults. Such as, the focus of the story building up to a huge finale, only to have it change mid-stream and wound up making the main plot feel anticlimactic and after the fact. Regardless of its imperfections, this book had plenty of nail-biting suspense and action, and I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I recommend this book to dark urban fantasy readers and look forward to the next book in this new series Siren Song due out 9/28/10. Also recommend: S.A. Jaare- Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between

After the first couple pages I was a little worried that I wouldn't enjoy this book. But I kept reading and I'm very glad I did! I was quickly drawn into Celia's story. She is in way over her head with problems but that doesn't stop her from kicking butt and taking names. I love a story with a good strong female lead and Celia is just that! This is a great book and I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.

There are parts of the book where it's so obvious that it's female authors! Yeah, I'm a guy. The writing and premise are great, and I understand it's from the perspective of a female character, but sometimes the female perspective is clearly evident and I feel like I'm reading a chick romance book rather than a sci-fi vampire novel. Still, the characters and the writing are captivating enough that I'll probably talk myself into reading the rest of the series. Glutton for punishment? Maybe...

This book started out interesting and only got better. There were surprising twists to the storyline. For a lot of the book I could barely read fast enough to satiate my curiosity. This was definitely worth the read and I cannot wait to read more.

I love these books and have thought that they would make amazing movies if done right. They are my favorite books and the only series I have reread twice.

I absolutely love this series!!!!! The heroin is strong and witty and just the right amount of crazy. At first i was a little confused because Cat just kinda throws you into the deep end but the more I read the more I started to understand. The characters are very well developed and the storyline is all consuming.

I liked Celia Graves, she's interesting with a cool backstory. I also enjoyed the world building, with a different take on the supernatural. After Celia is attacked and partially turned by a vampire, it's a lot of fun going along with her as she unravels the mystery of who set her up and why. The book is complete, but there's some nice foreshadowing that there's a lot more going on and more to learn in later books. My problem is that there were a lot of secondary characters and they tended to blur together. I kept getting them mixed up. I didn't find many of the secondary characters compelling in their own right, which is a real weakness for me. It's a good, solid book. Enjoyable in spite of the minor weaknesses.
