"Bodyguard Celia Graves plies her trade in a world where vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells. An ordinary human, Celia uses street smarts, and charmed weapons to protect the rich and famous from mortal and supernatural threats. She's protecting the prince of a small but politically vital nation when things go horrible wrong.
Bitten by a master vampire, Celia knows she is about to die.
To her shock, she survives. Celia Graves has become an Abomination, neither fully mortal nor fully vampire. Her "master" is hunting her, to destory her or finish what his bite began. She's accussed of murder, and the cops aren't sure whether she should be locked up or staked. And then there's the demon she glimpsed during the vampire attack....
Struggling to cope with her new powers. Celia reaches out for help from her once (and future?) lover, a powerful mage; his warrior-preist brother; a handsome
werewolf who keeps his lupine nature concealed from the world; an elderly clairvoyant; and one trustworthy cop.
Celia Graves has three days to save the world,her sanity, and her soul.
Information from the back of the book.
Before I begin my review note I won this book from GoodReads First Reads.
Blood Song by Cat Adams for me was a bit hard to get into at first. But once I got hooked I needed to know what happened to Celia. Although I don't think this was a very unique take on the supernatural world. I did find it to be good none the less.
Adams created a good story that has within it great characters. I loved Celia, how strong she remained through the story.I could picture all the characters in real-life.
The plot of Blood Song was interesting. The main character Celia life changes in one night. She is challenged to either let what happened to her kill her or fight for her life. And fighting is what she does. It is something she seems to do. Along the way she reunites with an ex who helps her in saving her life. Like I said I loved Celia and the other characters in this book.
This book ending on a good note but left you questioning what is going to happen in the second one. Where Celia is heading now?
All in all: The characters and story is what make this book a must read for all you supernatural, fantasy romance fans out there. It will be the cure for longing for a book packed with action and romance. You will not regret reading and purchasing Blood Song by Cat Adams.
