REVIEW by Dolly: Blade Song by J.C. Daniels – Release date August 1st, 2012 (@shilohwalker , @fidget78 )

Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

I have many of Shiloh Walker’s novels, but haven’t had a chance to read them. After reading Blade Song by her alter writer person, J. C. Daniels, I’m going to be delving into more of her novels and my goodness, there are many! Which is good for us readers. I happen to follow Ms Walker on twitter and she started talking about this novel, Blade Song. You know how there are just some books that catch you and won’t let you go. The synopsis of Blood Song literally trapped me. I was constantly checking for updates on the status. Then, the big moment. Ms Walker tweeted that Blade Song was up on NetGalley. My little fingers frantically flying to get there to request a copy. And then, and then, the wait began. If felt like forever but I finally got my copy.

And thus, I am now impatiently waiting for the next installment. I asked to make sure there would be one. The reply, if Blade Song sells well, I will write more. I felt like replying, write it and they will read it. I didn’t (but I did think it). Really, we must make sure we get more Kit!! I sincerely enjoy characters who aren’t all they can be at the beginning of a series. I like to watch the learning curve, the development and progress of the main character and supporting cast. If they’re perfect when they start the series, there’s no room for growth of the character. Believe me, Kit is learning bunches as she moves along in Blade Song.

I especially enjoy Kit’s uncertainty about the good guys and the bad or the very bad. Ms Daniels style isn’t to provide all the info up front either. The more you read, the more you learn. Actions that seem of little importance, suddenly become a major factor in the story line. The plot appears simple enough but not the way this author writes. You are continually surprised by the revelations of the characters and their actions/interactions. Just when you think you have a true read on a character, nope, you don’t. Surprise

As an experienced, talented author, Ms Daniels/Walker’s gives the reader an e-book fully worth every cent. The story line, world building, and character development are all there. It flows beautifully from beginning to end. I especially enjoyed the tension/connection between Kit and Damon. The bad part is, it had to end. I am again hooked on another series. All that without reading any of her other works which are series too. Oh my.

I have several favorite couples in the novels I read; Kate and Curran, Cat and Bones and now right up there are Kit and Damon. Hey, that sounds pretty cool. Kit, Cat, and Kate. Yeah, I like that.

A couple of exciting tidbits. This is one of the few e-books that I’ve seen where you’re able to pre-order on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The price difference is $ 0.30. And drum roll please….Ms Daniels/Walker will be doing a guest blog here on the 29th of July. We are very happy to have her include us in her blog tour.

My rating: 4.5 Stars
