4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Solid Read 30 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
Celia is finally making some progress with her life. After the last several books fiascos I was happier to see that she was having an easier time of it...until one of the more unforgettable things I have ever read happens to Celia (will she ever forgive herself for that darn body-binding spell? So good in theory, yet so bad when used against you!). Now Celia may be back to square on with her Vampy bits, *sigh* and she has a client who really isn't a client - it is a matter of Celia's good conscience taking center stage once again. Not that I can blame her one bit; when the good of man-kind is at stake-pull out all the stops.

For a Siren she sure does seem to have a lot of friends of both sexes! I also loved all of the secondary and tertiary stories in this book that have nothing to do with bad things for once! Mostly. Dawna ,*sigh* - poor thing, but we all saw this coming! Some new characters are brought in as well but don't get to used to them! Old friends are back and in my opinion, will be playing what looks to be larger parts in future books. Oh and it looks like we may learn a little more about the werewolves in coming books -at least I hope so!

If you have never read any of the books in this series you may want to start right from the very first book. However, it isn't really necessary to do so since the writing team does such a wonderful job of putting in just enough back story for new readers to understand what is going on. This writing team has the delicacy to NOT bore the readers who have been following the series. I have a feeling though, that anyone who starts here will soon find himself or herself grabbing for the whole series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet emotional growth and adrenaline fueled action 5 Nov 2013
By Reader79 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To Dance with the Devil is a solid 3.5 star read. It is an improvement over the prior installment, The Eldritch Conspiracy, in the Blood Singer series, but still falls short in some areas.

Once again readers follow the dangerous adventures of Celia Graves as our death-cursed heroine throws herself into paranormal danger; in this book she needs to protect a young woman targeted by a powerful mage with a familial grudge. The action is centered in California and the Adams writing team infuses the story with the same adrenaline that I think of as a standard of the series. The final battle scene in the book has the epically choreographed feel that I love in urban fantasy.

On the emotional front, Celia makes some real progress in her life. A significant portion of this book focuses on guilt and forgiveness. Issues revolving around Celia’s family life are either resolved or heading towards a resolution. Nothing is ever easy for Celia so even the positive changes in her family come at an emotional expense and I even felt myself get a little teary-eyed at a scene involving Celia and her sister. The friends in Celia’s life continue to prove their loyalty and Celia shows her emotional growth because it is easier for her to rely on them and ask for help.

A complaint that I had after reading The Eldritch Conspiracy was the authors’ treatment of Celia’s romantic life. Once again I find myself with the same level of disappointment with this latest book. The Amazon book description gives readers the impression that Celia’s relationship with Bruno is an essential element of this book and it isn’t. Once again the romantic elements of the book feel more like an afterthought than an integral part of the story. Celia seems to have more affection for her new cat than Bruno!

Disappointment aside I enjoyed this story and will continue to read the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars too much moping 6 Nov 2013
By PETER METZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's nice to see further Celia adventures, but this one didn't have as many twists and turns. There was also too much moping and not enough butt-kicking. While such behavior may be realistic, given the frequent disasters in her life, I don't want a completely realistic novel (the setting includes magic after all!) We guys like to see heroic female characters because it's attractive. Heroes don't mope.

This writing team has the delicacy to NOT bore the readers who have been following the series. I have a feeling though, that anyone who starts here will soon find himself or herself grabbing for the whole series.

In this book, we do finally see Celia making headway with her mother or at least coming to terms with her and also with her sister Ivy and the part Celia feels she played in Ivies death. What I do not like so much is the parts that John and Bruno are playing - these are the magic men that Celia has been having relationships with. While it is nice to have her have two men interested - it is starting to get a little repetitious to some of the readers. Bruno just doesn't seem to be Celia's type at all - he is a little to non-Alpha. ;-)

This was a good solid read, if not a perfect one. A good book and one that gives Celia the closure she needed in so many different aspects of her life. I just hope we get back to the more kick-butt frenzy that her life was until this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Personal growth and action 20 Nov 2013
By C. Thilmany - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Celia meets with a woman who wants to hire her to protect her daughter, but when Celia points out that the woman isn’t telling the whole truth, the woman storms out without hiring her. Bad decision. Celia does get involved when the powerful bad guy tries to warn Celia off after a seer tells him she’ll be in his way.

There is a major growth issue for Celia in the story when it comes to her family and what she’s always felt she was responsible for. Celia also learns to ask for help from her widening circle of friends. There’s plenty of action and inward speculation--which can drag on a bit. It’s nice to see that more people are seeing Celia as an asset to have around instead of a monster.

This is first and foremost an urban fantasy series and not a romance. Yes, she does have an ongoing relationship, and while it’s an important part of her life, it’s a small part of the overall story.

I have to admit that I’d stopped buying the books when I became disenchanted with the series. But after reading and enjoying the last 3 books via the library, I believe it’s time for me to start purchasing the books again. I’ve never gone back to purchasing books in a series after switching to getting them from the library. And I think I’d like to reread the series.
4.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Mystery & Adventure 25 Jun 2014
By GlttrGuitarAngel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When it comes to action, adventure, and mystery regarding the paranormal, the Celia Graves novels don't disappoint. Cat Adams has created a world where Paranormal is almost normal. A world filled with vampires, mages, werewolves, psychics and ghosts that are constantly entangled in intrigues and conspiracies. I wish there was a little more romance in the novels, but I know it's just not really the author's style-she prefers to focus on the action and mystery.

My only complaint is that there is a recap of the main characters and previous books at the beginning of each book. I know it's so that readers can jump in with any book and still have an idea of what's going on without having read the previous books, it's just that as a loyal reader of the series, it can be a bit irritating. Also, it's still a little vague, almost to where it's just about pointless anyway and might even bring up more questions than it answers.

Note: This book contains profanity and sexual references that may not be suitable for younger readers.
