One of the best I've read in this genre of sassy, kick-ass, paranormal heroines.

A good book, and the next one is good as well. Worth starting. Like others have mentioned, the beginning is a bit choppy, you feel in some instances like your thrown into the mix and don't really understand what is happening. We know and experience only what the character knows in a given point in time and it really accentuates the disorientation of Celia.

I was looking forward to this book. The cover looks great, the synopsis sounds awesome and it’s urban fantasy. Right up my alley. The first few pages made it difficult to get into the book but when things started happening, they happened. The pacing was fast – perhaps way too fast. I couldn’t really connect with the protagonist, not when she was human and not when she became an “Abomination.” Honestly, you’d think the authors would have come up with something better. The fact that she accepted her condition so very easily did not sit well with me. And then there are the various males she is interested in or who get her…well, you know. Not that anything happens. It’s just like one giant tease, heh. Her family, the plot – there was something so very contrived about this. There was barely a plot. I know it’s a premise to a series but come on now, if you want people to read the second book, you must deliver in the first one. And there are some really cheesy lines in the book, some cliched situations that will have you rolling your eyes. Also, I think the authors miscalculated – instead of focusing on Celia’s life as as “Abomination” (I will forever snerk at that), they have her grandmother confess (in a very cringe worthy scene) that she’s a siren. That was extraneous and way not needed. As a whole, I wasn’t really pleased with this book. (In case my review didn’t make that clear.)
