elia Graves, bodyguard to the elite, works in a world of vampires, psychics and otherworldly supernaturals. Due to a vampire bite in the series debut,
, she has become an
, half human and half vampire. But she learns that she is also part siren, a trait passed down through the generations.
opens, she is staying in an institute called Birchwoods, at least until she gets a handle on her newfound powers, and also to wait for her court date to be over. Celia discovers that being a siren, she enthralls men and makes women rage without even trying. She finds it hard to get a perspective on this new talent.
elia has been called to Siren's Island to do battle, possibly to the death. Can she avoid being killed? She leaves a few enemies in her wake. Some want her dead for her blood, or her soul, some just because they fear her. As her journey continues, Celia realizes there is a traitor within siren circles. Can she figure out who it is in time?
loved how this book was action packed right from the beginning. Poor Celia has more troubles than you can shake a stick at. All her luck is bad, and you want to jump in and help. I am guessing the next book of the series will be the best - there are many openings where it could continue.
was a good read all in all.
