Celia Graves is a professional bodyguard. She uses all her own (but limited) paranormal abilities and enlists the help of magical friends and colleagues to become one of the best at her profession. When she is employed to protect the King of Ruslan, though, something goes terribly wrong. All the magic she prepared and all the magical weapons she used still allowed several people to die. Although the King is safe, Celia was bitten by a vampire and is now an "abomination" - not fully human, but not fully vampire either.

Adams has created a fully formed, believable world where magic (both white and black) exists side by side with humans. There are rules about its use and everyone acknowledges the existence of beings who just happen to have special abilities. This could be a great thriller/mystery/action adventure even without the magical element, but with it....you have an interesting heroine, with interesting abilities and human feelings and foibles who becomes involved in an action packed storyline with lots of twists and turns. From what I thought was going to be a run of the mill vampire book, I was totally hooked on the story and couldn't wait to find out what happens next.

The ending is satisfying. You COULD stop with this first book of the trilogy, but there are a few loose ends and book two continues right where this one leaves off.......Siren Song!
