Publisher Comments:

A clairvoyants vision sends Celia Graves—part vampire, part Siren, and all too human—racing to evacuate a local elementary school before a concealed magical bomb goes off.  She gets almost everyone out in time, then flings herself and a little girl through a window just as the device detonates!

To everyones surprise, the bomb seems to cause no damage . . . until a stubborn bruise on Celias leg is discovered to be the first sign of a magical plague aimed at schoolchildren and their parents.  The disease is highly contaigious and almost 100% fatal; the cure is painful and in extremely short supply.  Will everyone under ten have to be quarantined? 

Tensions rise as more people succumb to the plague and big pharma seeks a big payday to speed up production of the cure.  Celia is determined to find the bomber, but other things keep getting in the way:  Her mother has broken out of prison; her ghostly little sister has possessed a young girl; and one of her boyfriends, a powerful mage, has disappeared in the middle of a casting. 

Review:

"There's no rest for the weary as half-vampire mage Celia Graves falls headlong into another crisis in Adams's fourth Blood Singer urban fantasy (after 2011's Demon Song). After Celia is hurt by a magical bomb planted in a school, she's left with injuries that won't heal and inexplicable memory issues, symptoms of what turns out to be a zombie plague striking all across the country. Even as she teams up with the FBI to catch the bombers and find a cure for the plague, Celia must cope with the return of her negligent, alcoholic mother; the restless ghost of her sister; her missing mage boyfriend; and her increasing vampiric bloodlust. As always, Adams strikes a nice balance between romance and action, continuing to flesh out Celia's world in strange new ways. Unfortunately, the otherwise solid plot is marred by last-minute pacing issues and an ending that blatantly sets things up for continuation. Agent: Merrilee Heifetz, Writers House. (Mar.)"

Synopsis:

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.

Warned of a magical "bomb" at a local elementary school, Celia forces an evacuation. Oddly, the explosion seems to have no effect, puzzling both Celia and the FBI. Two weeks later, a strangely persistent bruise on Celia's leg turns out to be the first sign of a magical zombie plague.

Finding the source of the plague isn't Celia's only concern. Her alcoholic mother has broken out of prison on the Sirens' island; her little sister's ghost has possessed a young girl; and one of Celia's boyfriends, a powerful mage, has disappeared.

Cat Adams delivers another page-turner Blood Singer novel with The Isis Collar.
