In a world where bloodthirsty vampires roam the night and street corner psychics have real powers, bodyguard Celia Graves always thought she was an ordinary human—but that was never true. By ancestry, she's half-Siren. A vicious vampire attack has turned her into a creature who finds sunlight painful and must take all her food in liquid form—but who still possesses a human ...more

Demon Song , the 3rd book in Cat Adams' Blood Singer series, finds Celia still coping with her fight to not go full vamp, while also dealing with the demon that just won't leave her alone and her recently discovered heritage. Troubles a brewin' and she finds herself smack in the middle of it.

The action in this series is non-stop. Trouble follows Celia around, but the girl carries some major weapons, many hopped on magic and always gets the job done. This addition to the series has a bit more ro
This series is a "turn your brain off" series. Don't look for incredible writing, deep engaging characters, or a plot line that leaves you breathless. It's predictable, and cliche at every turn. Just like an episode of Buffy or Dark Angel. Sometimes it was quite painful to read. Overall, I'd give it a "meh" and would not recommend it.However, sometimes it's nice to succumb to mind numbing fluff.

*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.
This novel was a continuation of Celia's adventures, picking up immediately after book #2 in the series. I was originally disappointed with book #1, but I thought that overall the series had progressively improved and became more interesting as we followed the storyline.

There were lots of actions and adventures, and I was quite happy that I saw some character growth in Celia. It was clear that she was well aware of her developing siren abilities, and meanwhile she worked hard to keep her vampire

If you've read my reviews of the two previous books in the series, you'll know that Adams' stacked plots and rich character development is some of the best out there, and there's cert

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

In a world where magic is real and the supernatural is almost normal, bodyguard Celia Graves has survived a vampire attack which made her a half-vampire and awakened her latent Siren abilities. She's battled a Siren Queen to the death and twice faced down a demon that wants to kill her--slowly. She's also had her heart broken--twice--by her old flame, magician Bruno DeLuca.

Perhaps the worst thing was the discovery that Celia's life has been warped by a curse laid on her during childhood--the cau
Demon Song

I strongly recommend you read the previous books in the series (Blood and Siren Song) prior to reading this installment.

This is one of those dark urban fantasy series that is just serious enough to keep my attention and just dark enough to not be considered urban fantasy lite or young adult.

The story started off with a bang, however, I still had a little bit of a hard time getting into this installment. It felt like the author was playing it too safe; Celia is only half everything but
I have to say I think this was the best so far. There was a great story and some great action.
I'm loving the relationship that is brewing with John Creed. I think it could go places. He accepts who she is and even helps her with gadgets and missions.
It's good that Bruno has apologized, but I don't believe he will change. As Celia said he is used to the female being at home raising the kids and running the house not running around fighting demons and protecting lives. I'm glad that Celia has ac

I have to give this one 3 stars. After finishing this last night, I bought the other three in the series.

The reason I'm giving this 3 stars is because there were some parts of the book that could have been left out-parts that didn't move any of the main plots along. I'm not sure why the authors included the parts about the little girl and the drug dealer. I'm not sure if they included that in order to introduce FBI Agent Rizzoli.

The other thing that I didn't like was the scene in the grotto. I

Celia is balancing two (or maybe 3) boyfriends and a greater demon. Of course, she is also battling her siren heritage and a possible end of the world scenario. Along the way she has to manage her vampire needs and help her friends get over major trauma. This was an action packed adventure and the end indicates that more adventures are on tap for Celia too. The story was exciting and entertaining with lots of danger.
This is a very good serie, i've read all six books and all of them are very good quality.

An intelligent storyline complicated and quite unpredictable(if at times using ghosts as Deus ex machina a little bit too often), good characters that if they are sometimes extreme, they are nonetheless believable. Everything is quite beliavable, dialogues and actions are quite realistic which is great.

-The worldbuilding is a little bit poor and thin and the politics of it are sketchy at best, and
So many works of fiction develop impossible romantic triangles which stretch on for ages, long after any sane group of people would have either moved on or else declared polyamory. There are hints of the latter here, but I doubt they will come to much.

The romance-novel thing has so far been tidily contained in subplots. I'm hoping that continues.
Another solid entry in the series.

I am not usually a triangle love interest kind of person but I really didn't mind it in this story since she wasn't all angsty about it. It is what it is and both men know about it and Celia knows at some point she will have to pick one. Also since this is UF, it is not the focus of the story.

Great cast of characters, lots (and I mean lots) going on! Celia loses people close to her, makes new friends, and the love triangle is a go. Not crazy about those, but in this book it works. FYI- book ends on a mild cliffhanger- but it's not one of those "OMG!!" moments.
This book in the Blood Singer series was not as good as the last one, but about the same as the first one. There was less action but more romance. I am not sure how I feel about the "love triangle" going on between Celia, Creede and Bruno. I think that I like Creede quite a bit but I don't really like any of the other characters too much. Celia isn't anything special and she can be annoying sometimes. I do like Adrianna the siren princess.

Recommends it for: Adult Paranormal Romance lovers
Although the first 60 pages of Demon Song was slow for me, the rest of the story was truly amazing. Celia Graves, bodyguard, 1/3 human, 1/3 vampire and 1/3 siren has quite a bit going on in her life. Her mother was arrested once again for the third time driving drunk, without a license or insurance and will be going to jail. Her grandmother wants to sell her house to pay for the legal fees and Celia decides to assist in a rescue attempt of her former friend Kevin who betrayed her badly. If that ...more
I really liked this 3rd installation. Celia's back and she's still drinking shakes, still burns a bit in the sun and still thinks she's a bad ass. The whole story, from beginning to end connected so perfectly with the title, and came together so well.
In this third installment she learns more about her siren background and their connection to all this demonic activity going on. As usual our auhtors wrap the story up in about a week, eventhough the ending takes place on Christmas day which is lik
Disappointments: Don't get me wrong, I love this series but this book was somewhat disappointing. I think a lot of things were touched upon and just glossed over. For example, what a VASO was and who was Kevin's Vaso. Also, who Edgar was working for - one minute he's in the story threatening Celia and next minute he just completely disappears. No more mention is made of Edgar eventhough he was the first one to mention the ever so important "artifacts" that Celia needed to save the world. These a ...more

Celia Graves is back and ready (maybe!) to tackle the rift between dimensions that has released demons into her small California town. Still reeling from her close encounter with a vampire and her discovery that she is a Siren princess, she teams up with former lover, Bruno, and maybe soon-to-be lover, Creede, along with her Siren relatives to battle the demons.
Although this is the third in the series, and having read the first two puts the reader immediately into the action and increases the
The beginning was extremely boring, which seems to be one of the most common diseases in at least half the books I read. But, thankfully, the drama and action picks up about 100 pages in with Creede to the rescue and all. I'm really proud of Adams for the perfect mix of action and romance that she presents for the later half of the book. Bruno finally makes his appearance, and I liked him a lot more than I was expecting to after book #2.

My favorite part of this book, however, was the character
This book was a great addition to this series. Celia is in California trying to get back to normal after all that happened in the previous book. Two of her closest friends betrayed her and now she is forced to help rescue one of them or he will die. This is just the start to a none stop of bad events for Celia. A demonic rift is being opened and it can't be contained much longer, Celia must rush to figure out how to close it especially when the only other time this has happened an entire place w ...more

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, Yo ...more
I should have written the review when I finished, it would have been more detailed. But what I can say is that although the series in general and this book specifically is fast-paced and pretty-much fun, there are a lot of irritations. The authors do stupid things like making a huge point in book two of having Celia give her incredibly valuable knife that's the only thing in the world that can kill a siren other than jealousy to the siren queen, a knife that took Celia's ex, one of the most powe ...more

I discovered the Blood Singer series a couple months ago, thanks to Tynga’s post about a blow-out sale at 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 don

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.

Dynamic Duo Cat Adams returns with the third installment of their Blood Singer Series, Demon Song. While I think this series is a real quiet dark horse of the paranormal set, things seem to be getting a bit overly complicated in Celia Graves' world. The story opens with a seemingly normal day of shopping. But quickly Celia is recruited to help save Kevin from an unlawful imprisonment at the Zoo, the paranormal prison. Kevin is captured after staging a breakout for his girlfriend, whose own inves ...more

Third in the Blood Singer urban fantasy series about a full-human bodyguard-turned-vampire/siren/human.

My Take
Oh, I cannot believe that Emma actually said that! Especially after the events in Siren Song ! W. T. F!

It's just too cute—and thank god for friends—how Dawna and friends keep an eye on Celia's food intake. The romantic action also heats up in Demon Song. With Creede, Bruno, and Gaetano. With some very interesting graphic displays! Certainly none I've ever come across…*chuckling as I thi
