Teaser Tuesday: Blood Song by Cat Adams

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My teaser this week is from Cat Adams' Blood Song. Here is the book description from Amazon:

Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a Prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed.

Neither human nor vampire, Celia has become an Abomination—something that should not exist—and now both human and supernatural alike want her dead. With the help of a few loyal friends—a sexy mage, a powerful werewolf, and a psychic cop—Celia does her best to stay alive. On the run from her enemies, Celia must try to discover who is behind her transformation…before it’s too late.
Here is my teaser:
I'm not particularly good at the political and social sides of the job: too blunt, too sarcastic, not inclined to suck up and play nice. The "attitude" has cost me jobs, so I try to work on it...and generally fail miserably. 
I have just begun the book but am already liking the main character.

  3. I'm not really a vampire fan, but Celia sounds like a character I'd like, too. Hope you enjoy the rest of the book. Good teaser!

  5. I love when I immediately hit it off with the main character. If I don't like the main character, the book will be worthless for me.

    Great Teaser! Adding to my to-read list :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
