Demon Song by Cat Adams

* I received a copy of this book from Tor Publishing in exchange for an honest review*
  
In a world where magic is real and the supernatural is almost normal, bodyguard Celia Graves has survived a vampire attack which made her a half-vampire and awakened her latent Siren abilities. She’s battled a Siren Queen to the death and twice faced down a demon that wants to kill her–slowly. She’s also had her heart broken–twice–by her old flame, magician Bruno DeLuca.Perhaps the worst thing was the discovery that Celia’s life has been warped by a curse laid on her during childhood–the cause of everything from the death of her little sister to the murder of her best friend the same night that Celia became an Abomination.An ancient rift between the demonic dimension and our own–sealed during the destruction of Atlantis–begins to open, threatening to loose all the demons of hell on humanity (including the one personally bent on destroying Celia). Celia’s hellish recent experiences have given her the unique combination of abilities needed to close the rift. But to overcome the curse, which nearly guarantees her failure, she’ll need to join forces with people she no longer trusts…and put people she has come to care about directly in harm’s way. Demon Song picks up right where Siren Song left off.  We are transported back into Celia’s world where we’ve come to expect the unexpected.  Celia is still struggling with the task of figuring out why Vicki left all that money to Mick, while keeping her friends safe and running her business.The demons have taken over the California State Paranormal Treatment Facility, aka “the zoo.”  The head demon has plans to destroy Celia unless she can get rid of him first.  She is tired of having to look over her shoulder every time she turns around.  She is doing the best she can to keep her friends safe but unless they can close the rift, there won’t be anyone left to protect. 

Throughout the book we can catch glimpses of favorite characters from previous books and several new, interesting ones.  The characters add to the story but do not overload the reader with too much information.  They are interesting and provide an added layer of depth.With each book Celia grows stronger and stronger.  She is learning to control her Siren and Vampire abilities, while managing to hang on to her humanity.  She refuses to give in and drink blood and continues to drink her protein shakes and blended up meals.This book is action packed and flows smoothly.  Demon Song has more romance than the first two books in the series.  Both Creede and Bruno make an appearance, along with our paramedic friend Gaetno.  Celia is worried that her Siren blood is calling the men to her whether they are really interested or not.  She comes up with a way to give the men and herself the assurance that the attraction is genuine.

I loved the climax of the story, it had me literally sitting on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t put the book down.  I felt bad for Celia and the sacrifices she and her friends had to make to close the rift.  The very end left me wandering how long we are going to have to wait for the next book. 

I really liked this book and think it’s the best one so far.  I can’t wait to see where Cat Adams is going to take us next.  I give Demon Song 4 Flaming Hearts.
