“I reviewed book 2 of this series, "Siren Song," and broke my rule that I would not judge a new series until the third book. "Siren Song" was so good that I felt that was a going to be a series a would stay with based on that book. I almost had to eat those words with this, "Demon Song," the third book in the series. I am completely open to the possibility that it had more to do with my mood and being overwhelmed with books to read, but I was halfway through this volume and it seemed to hit a wall, or at least, I did. The book seemed to be cooking along fine and then just S-L-O-W-E-D D-O-W-N. I read it in bits and pieces for a while but was close to giving up on it. I didn't. Glad I didn't. Yesterday, I picked it up and decided I would give it one last chance and I would finish it no matter what.
Good choice. A bit more mucking about was quickly followed by some of the most creative plot twists I have ever encountered. I was fascinated by the Siren piece all along, but the possibility raised in this volume (sorry, no spoilers) just grabbed me as extremely creative.
Then, the action, which is something at which Ms Adams excels, took off. The result was a very fast, page turning finish with a gratifying conclusion that leaves so much fertile ground for sequels that I can't wait to get to the next volume, "The Isis Collar."
Good character development, enough ambiguity to some characters to keep the reader (and the protagonist) guessing, good plotting, excellent action all combine to make this a very strongly recommended book for fans of this genre.”

“This series gets better with each book!

This is the 3rd book in the Blood Singer series by Cat Adams (pseudonym for Adams and Clamp, who write the Sazi series together), and follows the story of bodyguard Celia Graves, who discovered her latent Siren capabilities after she was attacked by a vampire. She still has her human mind, heart & soul, and is not a member of the undead. But, she is very sensitive to sunlight, and must take her nourishment in liquid form. She also discovered that she is related to Siren Royalty, which makes her a princess... not exactly something she's comfortable with admitting.
While trying to track down information on a family her clairevoyant best friend (who is now deceased, but still lingering as a ghost) had given a substantial amount of money in her will, an ancient rift between the demon dimension and our world begins to open and threatens to destroy the world. The most powerful mages are called in, and on top of that Celia has to wotk with people she no longer trusts, in order to helps those people she cares about the most!
This was a page turner all the way! I love that Celia is getting stronger in more ways than one, and things are getting more interesting in her personal life as well. I am really looking forward to future installments of this series!

“This is yet another series that I am totally in love with. As the only series I have read by this team of writers I didn't have any expectations for the writing or the story. But alas I fell in love with the cover so I gave it a chance and I fell in love with everything else about this book. Now fast forward through the really good second book to Demon Song. I really liked how this book was a little different than the other two, as in it wasn't just one major catastrophic event after another, You get to see Celia try on some "girl time" which after her change seem to be a little awkward for her but it is refreshing to see her have some time with the girls or to breathe between crises. There were plenty of action pact events through out the book and some meaningful family time too. Overall I think it was a good mix of emotion, good fun and action, and all that is before we introduce the love triangle. I like that her love interest wasn't the main focus of the story it was more of an underlying story amidst all the action. I also appreciate the look into Celia's self discovery and growth throughout the book. Add in some great secondary characters and we have a winner folks. I highly suggest this series to anyone who hasn't read it yet.

Being around Celia Graves is hard - heck, BEING Celia Graves is even harder.
Celia is getting used to being a half-vampire siren. As if that wasn’t enough, she has faced off against both a Siren Queen and a demon who wants her dead, and she’s done all of this while dealing with a heart that's been broken twice by the same man.
Just as we think Celia may get a little rest, she learns that an ancient rift between a demon dimension and our own begins to open. With all of the life-and-death struggles that she's going through, she is actually uniquely gifted to handle such a problem.
But she's still going to need help from friends - as well as from people she no longer trusts.
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. Very few authors come close to writing stories such as this. I’ve seen few movies that I actually enjoy as much as the BLOOD SINGER series.
Cat Adams is a joy to read each and every time. With these books and this author I know that my interest will be held and my expectations exceeded before even opening the cover. Definite Gold Star reading material! ”
