Teaser Tuesday: To Dance With the Devil 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!

I have recurring nightmares, in part from what happened when I was a kid, in part from my up-close-and-personal meeting with a bat, and more recently from an encounter with a demon who told me he'd see me in my dreams. All of this makes sleep a very tricky proposition.
To Dance With the Devil by Cat Adams is the sixth book in the Blood Singer series. I really like the main character of this urban fantasy series. Here is the description of this episode:
In To Dance with the Devil, the latest entry in Cat Adams's Blood Singer series, Celia Graves’s newest client is one of the last surviving members of a magical family that is trapped in a generations-old feud with other magic-workers. She’s supposed to die at the next full moon unless Celia can broker peace between the clans or break the curse before it can take effect.

For the first time in a long while, Celia’s personal life is looking up. Her vampire abilities seem to be under control, her Siren abilities have gotten more reliable, and even though her office was blown up, her services are more in demand than ever now that she's fought off terrorists and been part of the royal wedding of the year. Her friends all seem to be finding love and her grandmother has—finally—agreed to go to family therapy.

The only trouble spot is Celia’s love life. Not long ago, she had two boyfriends. Now she barely has one and she isn’t sure she wants him. But Bruno DeLuca is a powerful mage and Celia needs his help…especially after she's attacked and her client is kidnapped.

  6. Hi Kathy,

    Whilst this isn't a book that I would probably choose to read and if I did I would need to have read the previous books in the series to be up to speed with the story, I can appreciate those great teaser lines.

    I fully understand the impact that childhood influences might bring to bear in later adulthood and losing sleep over problems and dreams, be they good or bad, is never a healthy situation.

    I wonder how she manages to deal with the demon?

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that you enjoy the rest of the book.


  7. I can see how this character might be reluctant to close her eyes. Here's Mine

  8. And I thought I had trouble with sleep.

  9. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy. Sleep wouldn't be something I'd want to do either with all those things hanging over my head!
