Demon Song - Cat Adams The beginning was extremely boring, which seems to be one of the most common diseases in at least half the books I read. But, thankfully, the drama and action picks up about 100 pages in with Creede to the rescue and all. I'm really proud of Adams for the perfect mix of action and romance that she presents for the later half of the book. Bruno finally makes his appearance, and I liked him a lot more than I was expecting to after book #2.

My favorite part of this book, however, was the character devlopment that Celia underwent. She's become softer than she was at the beginning and a lot less reckless but still with a hero complex. I'm glad she's honest about her feelings to her friends and doesn't go into the typical withdrawl when faced with complicated decisions. She handles herself incredibly well in front of both Bruno and Creede. The former still needs to make up for his earlier mistakes, but I still prefer him to the latter. Besides, I think Creede already knows he's gonna lose, but still persists for fun or whatever.

The cliffhanger at the end is startling, and hopefully will help the next book in the series to be completely captivating instead of a frustrating mix of half-boring and half-interesting.
