In Celia Graves's world, vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street-corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells. But Celia thought she was an ordinary human, albeit one with a clairvoyant best friend and a ghostly little sister.

The vampire attack that made Celia an abomination forces her to take food in liquid form and gives a whole new mea

Siren Song picks up right where Blood Song ends. Celia is still trying to come to grips with being an abomination. She still has to face her court date and the Queen of the Sirens; she doesn’t have time to be kidnapped.

While at Birwoods she is visited by her Siren cousin Ren, who presents her with a gift of a Wadjeti. She doesn’t know what to make of the visit but is concerned about what will happen when she finally gets to the island. She isn’t looking forward t meeting her grandmother, Queen L

So, better than the first, but there were new things to annoy me in this one.

For some reason, every time something should have been italicized, it was instead in "quotes." I find this "incredibly" annoying. I "almost" stopped reading. It was "that bad."

Was it just my ecopy? I have no idea. It "is rather funny" though, because Meg and I were "just" making fun of someone else we saw doing this the "other day." This "must be" my punishment for mocking some "really bad poetry."

Blergh.

I love this new-to-me series! It's urban fantasy that's fun and exciting, with fast-paced action and witty dialogue. This particular novel starts within days of the end of book 1 (Blood Song) and reads more like part two of a single novel, at least so far as the emotional entanglements are concerned. Story-wise, it's strong enough to stand alone, but I'm glad I had both books on hand at nearly the same time, so I had no real delay between the two. Readers who read them as they came out (several ...more

Celia Graves, bodyguard turned half-vampire/half-siren is back in this follow up to the truly excellent Blood Song that finds her once again hunted at every turn by mages, sirens, demons and even humanity. Unlike in most urban fantasy books, vampires in The Blood Singer series aren’t sexy love interests, they are the scourge of the earth. Feared and loathed by almost everyone, Celia has to navigate this story filled with lots of action, betray

Siren Song (Blood Singer, #2)Siren Song by Cat Adams

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I enjoyed Siren Song more than I thought I would but it would have gotten a bit higher rating from me if she would have indulged my need (and those of most normal people) for revenge, I don't particularly care for forgiveness when it looks more like stupidity. The action was good, the finale was a letdown and something that was supposed to be important was ignored (maybe it shows up in the next book). I guess this is another really good story that w

Another good book. I like the characters well enough that the shortcomings didn't bother me too much. Celia was still great, smart and brave, strong without being too pushy, and just likable. And the rest of the characters, large and small, continued to be vividly portrayed in this book. I have a terrible memory, but as an example, even now I can remember the names of her officemates (Ron and Bubba) because they were so well-described, even though they were minor characters. It adds a lot to the ...more

Goodness gracious. Celia - for F***S sakes - grow a clue! (view spoiler)
This book has:
1. Typos. Lots of them.
2. Unneccessary characters.
3. Clichés. "Greta the Nordic looking person whose English is heavily accented" made me feel bored and insulted at the same time. Do some research, ok, ladies? We're not all towering blondes with poor german accents and the names Inga or

This sequel did NOT disappoint. I absolutely loved it. Political intrigue and cool supernatural powers abound. Some unexpected changes for sure! I'm in Montego Bay and sitting oceanside reading it and could not put it down until I finished it! Now I can go back and mention a few things that I liked about Siren Song. I like the main character. She is strong but not so much so that she makes you dislike her or not care about what happens to her. There were quite a few surprises and turns in this b ...more

The beginning was extremely slow, to the point where I wanted to drop this book and read something else. But I'm so glad I didn't, because it gets waaaaaayy interesting about 50 pages in, after Celia's talk with Bruno. After that, it's completely action packed with lots of drama and suspense and I ended up loving this book just as much as its prequel. I adore Celia's character; she's very strong, very badass, and also completely realistic and practical. More than half my love for this series com ...more

WOW. Talk about stepping from the pan into the fire. Celia just cant catch a break.
I am truly enjoying this series. Ms Adams has a way with storytelling that is quite enchanting. Sucks you right in and doesn't spit you out till you have hit the last page. Then your pissed cause you have to wait for the next book. Luckily I brought them all recently so I don't have to wait.
This is a well rounded story. Great character building, world building, action and kicking ass.

This is a very good serie, i've read all six books and all of them are very good quality.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
-The worldbuilding is a little bit poor and thin and the politics of it are sketchy at best, and

This urban fantasy novel is well worth picking up. It's part of series, so be forewarned that not everything get resolved by the last page. However, Cat Adams has done a fascinating job of building up a realistic alternate universe with vampires, sirens and other mystical creatures and powers. Everything is dealt with in a very matter-of-fact way, no giant information dumps and no leaving the reader wondering just what the characters are talking about.

I like the heroine, Celia, especially as she

WOW! So many changes in this story as Celia learns about her human, vampire, siren selves. Not fully anything they've categorized her as an abomination. Little do they know she's got just enough of everything and a small surprise to take on everyone!

Celia Grave is a human as well as a siren, who also was attacked by a "bat" and now has some vampire qualities - except, she can walk in the sun, holy water and holy objects do not bother her, and she does not drink blood from the source - but, her food must be put into a blender.

I liked this second book of the Blood Singer series better than the last book. It seemed like more happened in this one than the last one. There was more action and actual story. The last book just felt like Celia running around doing errands while trying to figure out the vampire stuff. In this book, it felt like there was an actual plot and things got accomplished. I still feel ambiguous towards Celia, she's not a great character but she's not horrible either, just kind of generic. The other c ...more

Great follow up to Blood Song. Celia is becoming one of my favorite heroines! I only hope something will happen between her and Creede in a future installment.

When I read Blood Song I was not very impressed and I even stated so in my review. However, Siren's Song was a much better read to the point that I would describe it as incredibly good.
The book opens as Celia Graves is being transported by her private doctor to a private mental facility. Unfortunately along the way, she and the good doctor are kidnapped and she must find a way for them to escape. Additionally, she is faced with an upcoming court appearance that may lead to her going to a state

Celia is now trying to save her life - over and over again. It's really hard to say much about this book without spoiling it for anyone. But, you would highly recommend reading the first book before you dive into this one. Celia is starting to deal with her vampirism and while some others are starting to accept it, others just can't (they feel she should be put down). But, a lot of things are answered in this book - why her sister died so young, why she's been having such bad luck all of her lif ...more

In BLOOD SONG, Celia was attacked by a vampire, but not turned completely. Instead she's an 'abomination', a sort of vampire limbo, with both perks and disadvantages. She also learned that her great-grandmother is a siren—yes, the magical variety who can sing men to their deaths—and since being bitten it appears that these traits have finally manifested. The perk: men come when she needs. The disadvantage: women hate her.

One would think that having some supernatural abilities might make life a l

By the end of Blood Song, Celia Graves was half-vampire and half-human and had just discovered that she is the descendent of a Siren. She also has some unfinished business involving the King of Ruslan and a demon. This is the second in the trilogy and picks up immediately where the first leaves off. You don't have to have read Blood Song, but it will deepen your understanding and your empathy for the characters. Will Celia get back together with Bruno or will Creede distract her? What really hap ...more

When a Master Vampire bites her but doesn’t drain her nor does he change her, so she becomes an Abomination (a term for the in-between stage, not fully mortal but not undead either). There aren’t many recorded instances of Abomination’s, but those who were recorded were locked away in institutions, killed or committed suicide.

Celia has continued to work as a bodyguard, but the attack has woken up dormant abilities in her. She’s a Siren and has been summoned to the Siren’s island to justify her e

This is the second book in the series after, Blood Song. If you have not read that one yet, I would not attempt this book. This book starts with the exact scene that Blood Song left off. Celia is leaving the memorial for her bestfriend and is going to share a limo with Dr. Scott, the head of her treatment facility. It becomes apparent after a short time that the limo is not being driven to the facility and they are being kidnapped-but by whom? Celia gets out of that scrape only to find herself d ...more

I liked the first book in the series, and this second was just as enjoyable.

Still smart, funny, and feisty, Celia Graves, the protagonist kept my attention and I enjoyed seeing her through the second novel as much as I enjoyed meeting her in the last book.

This time she's meeting new, equally dysfunctional members of her family...a branch she knew nothing about until now. She has to cope with new talents, and more loss and betrayal.

A quick and easy, undemanding read, enjoyable, funny, and again,

This book was a weird mix of the good and the disappointing.

The Good: Celia is an excellent main character, with a unique and entertaining voice. She’s strong, but she’s also has issues (getting turned into half-vampire and learning you’re a Siren can do that). Also, this book introduced a new character, John Creede, who has great potential as a secondary character, even possibly love interest. And the book was packed full of mystery, adventure, and a little horror.

The Bad: Two of the more inter

Something's just not right in Celia Graves life. Assassination plots, harassing cops, a drunk mother, and it's only Monday. With one crisis after another Celia hardly has time to notice a pattern let alone breathe. In this second installment the action begins from the first page when Celia is abducted. Narrowly escaping the ordeal just leads to more reasons why the humans want Graves dead, and it's not helping her legal issues. In the meantime Celia is learning to balance her inner vampire witho ...more

Definitely liked this book better than the previous one. I suppose that is because all the characters and back story are already pretty laid out. It still sometimes bothers me that the author makes references to past events that never occured in this, or the last, book. The character experienced things in childhood say, that she has not ever gone into detail about and yet, the events were significant enough to completely change the landscape and personality of the main character. I see that this ...more

This is a fitting sequel, a more than adequate sequel to the first book, "Blood Song," in Cat Adams' "Blood Singer" series. It does more than continue to develop the promise of that first book, it begins to deliver on the promise. This book is full of surprises and plot twists that kept this reader turning pages long after it was time for "lights out." Okay, so another author owes me sleep, not unusual for me.
Faced almost immediately with heart-breaking abandonment, Celia, our heroine, sets out
