"Another winner for writing duo Cat Adams!"
Celia Graves lives in a very different world than we do. In
her world, magic and supernatural creatures are the norm.
This tends to make Celia's job as a bodyguard even more
difficult since she doesn't have any magic herself. But she
copes, and even manages to do pretty well for herself. Has
her own business which allows her to buy all the best toys.
Celia really didn't want to take the job guarding the
prince of Rusland, but the money was just too good to pass
up. At least she's working with her former mentor, so she
knows someone will have her back. As the night progresses,
Celia finds herself ever more disenchanted as the prince
goes to one dive after another. When the manager comes in
and makes everyone leave because the cops are there, the
prince's entourage decides to go out the back. With her
mentor in front of her, Celia goes out the back door, just
to hear it slam and the prince transform into some kind of
demon. Now under attack by bats, Celia watches as her
mentor goes down and is quickly overpowered and goes down
herself, and passes out.
When Celia awakens, she isn't exactly pleased to find
herself restrained on a lab table. At least Kevin's there,
her friend who also happens to be a werewolf. But then
Celia finds out why she is restrained. Turns out when she
was attacked, she didn't turn all the way, nor did she die.
Now she's an Abomination—not fully vampire, but no longer
human. She shouldn't even have survived.
Will Celia even be able to go out in sunlight now? Will she
be locked away as a danger to humans? Will she have the
urge to drink blood? And most importantly, will Celia be
able to figure out why she was betrayed before her master
can find her and either finish the job and completely turn
her or kill her?
BLOOD SONG is a fast-paced, entertaining read where the
lines of right and wrong become blurred. Once more, author
duo Cat Adams does an outstanding job of telling a tale
about a very strong woman put into an impossible situation.
This story grips you by the throat and doesn't let up until
the very last page, where we can see where the next one in
this series is going. I love the way these two authors can
put characters into these situations and then allow us to
ride along as they not only survive, but come out on top. I
always know whenever I pick up a book by these authors, I
will become totally entrapped in their web of words and
want more. Even their secondary characters are great. And
this one has the added benefit of actually being something
I would gladly have a teen read. As always with Cat Adams,
this story has its place on my keeper shelf. More, Cat

Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a Prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed.
Neither human nor vampire, Celia has become an Abomination—something that should not exist—and now both human and supernatural alike want her dead. With the help of a few loyal friends—a sexy mage, a powerful werewolf, and a psychic cop—Celia does her best to stay alive. On the run from her enemies, Celia must try to discover who is behind her transformation…before it’s too late.
