Bodyguard Celia Graves plies her trade in a world where bloodthirsty vampires roam the night and street-corner psychics have real powers. A vamp attack turned Celia into a unique creature who finds sunlight painful and who must take all her food in liquid form—but who still retains her human heart, mind, and soul.

The attack also awakened a hidden part of her heritage:

So here's the thing about DEMON SONG . . .

Before this rerereread, it was my favorite book in the BLOOD SINGER series (thus far). It was actually one of my favorite installments of an urban fantasy series ever.


This time around . . . not so much.

Before I get into the specifics, I need to emphasize a qualifier or three:

1. I still feel that the basic plot line is fantastic.

Demon hell gate, Atlantis, JOHN-effing-CREED . . . Seriously, what's not to like?

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.

So, the series continues and so does Celia's messed up life. I feel bad for her at times. She just cannot catch a break. This book continues pretty much after Siren Song left. Her life is one chaotic incident after another. There's hell gate and then, there's Atlantis. Yes, the Atlantis....

As if her plate is not full enough that the demon that is stalking her is back in this one. He's obsessed with her and wants to, of course, have her (besides taking over the dimension). Not to mention, both,

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
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

Okay, so I'm reviewing this when I was on page 324. This book centres around Celia dealing with normal life and oh a mental facility filled with supernatural creatures that demons have overrun. If that doesn't draw you in, Celia's love life starts to heat up after the last two books not being so filled with it. 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

*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.

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

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.

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.

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.
very good. Picks up right where Siren Song left off. and it has a love triangle with Bruno, Celia and John Creede. I really can't wait if there is another book in this series (which i am hoping), if not , oh well.

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.

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

Maybe even 3.5. Hard to say. I reviewed the first two books in this paper-thin, piece-of-fluff series, so I might as well keep going.

This latest installment of "Blood Singer" felt slightly better than the first two. Part of that is because there were a few more details about imagery (Did everyone else know that Dawna was Vietnamese?). It felt like there was a little more effort put into this novel. And for the first time it felt like there was effort put into giving the protagonist, Celia,

I enjoyed that the first book was fast paced and had some hints of a well rounded heroine. I love that this book adds even more depth to all the characters, develops that background story of our siren without feeling like a bunch of clunky flashbacks, once again has some romance but doesn't spend all our time obsessing over just the romantic relationship because our girl also has a life, and I loved that this book created less loose threads (though some minor unaddressed questions from the first ...more

This series was incredibly choppy and did not really develop it's main character. I found that the reader found out about most of the things by learning about them after they happened and not during. We were very much told instead of shown. I detested Bruno's character and read to the reviews of the next couple of books to see if this ridiculous love triangle goes on and who, if anyone, she choose. I was sorely disappointed and will be tapping out from this series.
Matilde Damkier
It's still a good book, but I have the same issues with this one as I had with the second.
But it seems the cast of characters is stabilizing, at least a little bit. We got some more face-time with people we know - and some romance development.
But really, her first actual date in the series and we have to hear about it second-hand, after the fact? Bah.

**Review** Demon Song is the third book in the Blood Singer series by the writing tandem known as Cat Adams. It features Celia Graves as a bodyguard by trade, who was attacked by a bat (vampire) in Blood Song, and turned into a creature that is not quite human, but not fully vampire either. She was dead yes, but she retains her humanity, even though it’s predicted that she will eventually slip up and drink human blood by accident, intent, or simple biology of being a vampire.

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

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

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 ...more

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
