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

These books are quick and easy and don't get you attached to the characters. I enjoyed the siren aspects of this book, but all the thing that annoyed me in book 1 are still a problem here. 3.5 stars

- love triangle
- Celia's mother
- Celia's grandmother
- plot holes

It's rare to get a really good first installment in an urban fantasy series--too much stuff has to happen. You've got world-building, laying the foundation for the series arc while telling an individual story that's compelling by itself, character development, etc. All preferably in 40k words or less.

On occasion, it does happen, but most the time . . . something's missing.

BUT.

It's equally rare to get a decent second book from those same early winners. Second Book Syndrom

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

A bit more exciting than Book #1, but with larger doses of some of the same problems. This is an interesting series with a big mix of characters that many paranormal readers will enjoy, IF they enjoy characters who can't stay out of trouble, largely due to themselves.... and wee bit of an outside cause. You'll have to read SIREN SONG (Book #2) for details, because I'm not giving big spoilers here.

In Book #1 (BLOOD SONG), our reluctant heroine Celia Graves was bitten by a vampire (but not comple

This series is good but also sad and depressing. Things are always going badly for Celia and she could really use some comfort and hugs. I really longed for that in this book. She really could have used comfort. Lots happened in this book and everything that happened was practically related. Very interesting and we learn more about her siren side. So far she's keeping the bloodlust at bay and doing well adjusting just she needs a hug damnit! On to the next one!

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

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.

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

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

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

I really forgot how much i loved this series. Celia is a kick ass Part Vampire, Part Siren. Human in a world filled with supernatural creatures such as werewolves, demons and so much more. Its set is a made up town near L.A but the world building really had me convinced that it was a real place. Celia is such a well written and deep character and she is easily one of my favourite lead females. I love the complexity of the stories and the drama. This book centres around Celia dealing with what sh ...more

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! 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!

Second in the Blood Singer urban fantasy series about Celia Graves, a bodyguard whose life has been turned inside out and upside down.


My Take
Whoa...this is a hard crowd! Adams certainly has a unique take on how vampires are considered in her world. Celia and Dr. Scott are kidnapped and she acts in self-defense saving both of their lives and all the prosecutor has to say is that if she ever "sets so much as a toe out of line, we will prosecute"? What about the cops who ignored what was happening?

Reseña completa: https://goo.gl/7QhGwm

Una lectura regular, con criaturas sobrenaturales que fueron desperdiciadas por los vampiros.
Celia a pesar de ser una protagonista fuerte carece del carisma necesario para encandilar a los lectores, su pareja sentimental Bruno no logra cautivar. Ni en el primero o segundo pude sentir química entre esos dos.
En conclusión es una saga de fantasía urbana que a mi parecer no logra destacarse del resto.

This second book is soooooooooooo much better than its predecessor (Blood Song). I decided to hang tight and read this second book in the series since the siren introduced at the end of Blood Song sparked my interests. Sure enough, this book was a much better book than the last one.

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

Siren Song is much like its predecessor Blood Song. For me, that’s not a good thing. But it did do some things right.

There’s more information and her endless supply of trouble gets an explanation. (view spoiler)

Sirens, their abilities, and their society get delved into a bit. It’s still misty around the edges for me. I liked slowing down to find this stuff out. But sadly, it didn’

Finished Cat Adams' Siren Song and it was quite a good read. Great followup to Blood Song, but since it had been so long since I read that one, I kind of forgot some of the details. And there wasn't the best recap, I mean they did mention things that have come to past, but it took me awhile to orient myself back into the scheme of things.
It was a pretty quick read too. I read almost all of it yesterday and finished it this morning before moving to my next read. The plot was well paced as Celia i

I always love how there are so many parts of the same story happening in Adams' books. It creates the most tantalizing case of "whoa, what does this mean?!" The plot is well-planned and always chang

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

WOW, this book just sucked me in right from the get go! i want more...but i had to go to work, boo.

i don't remember the first one being this good.

there are little tiny clues/references to past events from the previous book that just completely refreshed my memories of it!

i really appreciated the note from the authors at the beginning, saying pretty much, sorry if they're errors in the book, some are bound to get in.

I strongly suggest you read the previous book in the series (Blood Song) prior to reading this installment.

I was really looking forward to reading this book since the end of Blood Song. The possibility of having a different preternatural creature to focus on, as oppose to the same old vampires, witches and demons was a nice prospect. However, I must admit this installment was a bit of a disappointment. The inconsistencies were too great to ignore; plus, the whole postmenopausal wo
