This installment of The Blood Singer Series starts with Celia at a school, where she tries to get them to evacuate the building. See Celia has been informed by Dottie that a bomb will go off in the school and if it does, really bad things will happen. Just as she's being escorted out of the building, Celia can feel the bomb going off. When she turns around, Celia sees that everyone is moving in slow motion. Thanks to her vampiric strength, Celia is able to get the principal out of the school. Once outside the building, the woman can move at normal speed again and between the two of them, they work to evacuate the building. With the adults working to get the children out of the school, Celia heads to the basement to investigate. There she finds another magical bomb, which also goes off.
For a couple weeks, nothing much seems to happen, except that Celia has a constant headache and a bruise on her leg which just won't heal. Turns out the bomb was a method of infecting everyone at the school with a fatal disease--M. necrose. This disease turns people into more or less zombies and Celia was infected with it. Celia knows enough people to get cured of it, but there are a whole lot of people turning up in hospitals with it. Not to mention that Creede goes missing, her alcoholic mother manages to escape from her prison on the Siren island and a witch has stolen an ancient artifact called the Isis Collar which conveys magic to the wearer.
Will Celia be able to save the world again? Will she find her mother? And what about Creede? Where did he disappear to?
THE ISIS COLLAR is nonstop action from the very first page all the way through the very last page. Author duo Cat Adams have once again written a thrilling adventure set in a world filled with all kinds of magical beings and magic wielders. I love the way Celia takes care of her loved ones. In this book, she helps Dawna deal with the aftermath of her vampire attack. Some day Celia will have to decide between Bruno and John Creede. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and highly recommend it.
