Read this straight through. I really like this series and the characters. Celia has to figure out what's going on in the 'zoo' and why Vicki left so much money to the Murpy's. Hold off those trying to kill her and not eat people herself.

Celia keeps moving along -- she definitely has been cursed to live in an interesting time. The threats get bigger, the losses get deeper. ( )

RATING: 3 stars.

Interesting story but the love triangle felt forced and the narrative is still too scattered. ( )

I discovered the Blood Singer series a couple months ago, thanks to Tynga’s post about a blow-out sale at bookcloseouts.ca a while back. It’s such a fantastic site that, incidentally, has free shipping right now -- for a limited time only -- so go check it out, my fellow Canucks!

With each book, I love the Blood Singer series even more. I wasn’t sure I could love Celia and her world more but I was thrilled by Demon Song. The two ladies (C. T. Adams and Cathy Clamp) who write as Cat Adams have done an amazing job with this story, not only in this book but in the series in general. I’ve been thrilled by all three installments. There are romantic developments, interesting magic, high stakes action, and some excellent character work, particularly in Demon Song. It’s impossible for me to say what I liked best about this book because it was all so good!

One of my favorite aspects of the series is the nature of Celia’s supernatural abilities. She was attacked by vampires at the start of Blood Song, but she wasn’t converted all the way, so she’s a half-vampire (or an Abomination, depending on who you talk to), carrying some vampiric traits (needs to drink blood, burns in the sun) but not all of them. Celia clings to her humanity, sometimes by the skin of her teeth, so she’s this sort of hybrid human-vampire. Plus she’s got Siren in her background, which remained dormant until she was bitten. This combination of Siren and vampire is something I haven’t seen in other stories and it makes Celia a force to be reckoned with, both in her world and also the genre. (Plus, we rarely see sirens in UF/paranormal books, at least compared to vampires and were-beasties, so it’s a refreshing take on traditional UF vampirism.)

Of course, it’s not just her powers that make Celia awesome. She’s got a winning personality, if you like tough, stubborn women, which I do. And so do some of the men in the book, since Demon Song puts the Creede-Celia-Bruno love triangle in the middle of the action. I can totally understand why Celia is torn between Bruno, her ex who’s this powerful, adorable Italian guy with baggage, and Creede, who’s just as powerful and accepts Celia as she is but has some sneakiness and mystery about him. They’re both interesting, compelling characters and have very different things to offer Celia. Her confusion about what to do with two men after having years of no men is pretty funny, too.

The romantic subplot is woven seamlessly into the main plot line about the scary rift that’s letting demons invade our world. The demon invasion was really neat since it lets the reader learn a lot more about how magic works in the Blood Singer series, and harkens back to events from previous novels since there’s a demon who has a lot of personal investment in Celia (though you don’t need to know precisely what happened before to get into Demon Song since the authors do a great job of filling in the blanks). I love how the stakes in this book are higher than they’ve ever been, and how Celia is the only one who can deal with it, thanks to her mixed heritage. I also love that Celia’s forced to deal with her own issues in this book, since she has to help Kevin and his dad out of a pickle. The authors have done an admirable job of beating Celia up, both emotionally and physically, in this book and I can’t wait to see what they put her through next. Whatever it is, I’m sure that readers will love it!

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

*Spoilers for previous books in this series*
DEMON SONG masterfully juggles multiple storylines all revolving around the cool-as-they-come Celia Graves who by this book is a bodyguard who has survived a vampire attack, learned she’s a half siren princess, and discovered that she has an unliftable demon death curse.

As with the previous Blood Singer books, DEMON SONG is masterfully plotted. Every moment, character, and discovery has a significant purpose. It is unbelievably satisfying to read a series where you know the ending of each book has been planned out perfectly to peak at just the right moment.

Speaking of satisfying, one thing that I just loved about this installment was the inclusion of the Atlantis legend. The mythical island plays a key role in the story. Some fun twists and new magical explanations for it’s disappearance link both sirens and demons, which of course put Celia smack dab in the middle of the action.

Of the three Blood Singer novels, DEMON SONG is by far the most romantic to date. Celia is dealing with her unwanted siren attraction, and for the first time in her life she has two men pursuing her: her ex-fiancé Bruno, and the enigmatic John Creede. Both mages, both evoke very different responses from Celia, and neither one appears willing step down. And since Celia’s life never slows down long enough for her to eat regularly (dangerous for a vampire) let alone to consider who she wants to be with, the romantic tension stays taut throughout the book.

Overall, this is another thrilling urban fantasy led by a character whose ongoing battle to balance the magical and mundane aspects of her life is endlessly entertaining. The plot is intricate and layered with romance, heartache, and explosive magical action sequences. But it’s the world building which is dense and ever expanding in new and exciting ways--this time including the legend of Atlantis--that makes DEMON SONG my favorite of the series and has me eagerly awaiting the next Blood Singer book.

Sexual Content:
A magical sex scene that is mildly graphic. ( )
