Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celia Graves was once an ordinary human, but those days are long gone. Now she strives to maintain her sanity and her soul while juggling both vampire abilities and the powers of a Siren.  

Not every bride needs a bridesmaid who can double as a bodyguard. But Celia's cousin Adriana is no ordinary bride: she's a Siren princess, and she's marrying the king of a small but politically important European country. She's getting death threats from fanatics who want to see the whole Siren race wiped out—including Celia herself, who is half Siren.

Luckily, Celia is on duty when a trip to a bridal salon is interrupted by an assassination attempt, so everyone survives. When Adriana returns to the Siren homeland to try to prevent a coup, Celia is free to hunt for the terrorists and the vile mage who is helping them (while keeping her eyes open for the perfect maid-of-honor dress). 

Assuming the bride and groom both live to see their wedding day, this will be one royal wedding no one will ever forget.

Synopsis:

“A balance between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. The emotional components are just as strong as the action sequences.”  —Publishers Weekly on Demon

Our Review by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*ARC Received from the Author in exchange for an honest review

I've been meaning to read the BLOOD SINGER novels for quite some time. I've read other series by Cat Adams and the CT Adams/Cathy Clamp duo and absolutely loved them, so I knew I would probably thoroughly enjoy these as well. Unfortunately I just haven't had time to dig in. When I set up an Author Event to promote The Eldritch Conspiracy I was sent an ARC for review and decided to take the plunge even though it's book #5 of the series...

I read it in 2 sittings. This book was intense, action packed, and filled with abundant goodness!

So much happens in this book that it's difficult for me to go into things without spoilers (and I don't do spoilers) so let me just say this: The book takes a kick @$$ heroine who is 1/2 vampire and 1/2 siren, starts up literally in the middle of an insane mission where all involved either die or almost die trying to thwart the bad guys, throw in some immediate betrayal and follow all of that up with a deeply intriguing mystery surrounding the pending nuptuals of a siren princess to the king of a European country (both of which have their share of enemies and secrets and therefore incite multiple assassination attempts), dust the edges with a bit of paranoia, romance, and some family drama and you have The Eldritch Conspiracy. It was like an action/thriller movie on paper and had me riveted from page one. Literally.

My only wish is that I had read the rest of the series first - not that this book doesn't stand well on its own, it absolutely does, but it was just so good that I immediately wanted more of the world of Celia Graves. Good thing I have the other books waiting. ;)


LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Eldritch Conspiracy 4 1/2 Skulls and would recommend it for all Urban Fantasy lovers. It was amazing and from what I've heard from my readers and friends, the rest of the series is just as good. I can't wait to find out for myself!!
