THE ISIS COLLAR
As if part-siren/part-vampire Celia Graves didn’t have enough to worry about, now she must face a zombie plague. Adams takes creepy to a whole new level with this intense and enthralling adventure in the latest Blood Singer novel. Celia’s relationships, romantic or not, continue to force her to grow in ways she never expected. UF doesn’t get much better than this!
A clairvoyant gives Celia a warning about a magical bomb set to explode at a local elementary school. A frustrated Celia can’t get the principal to listen before the bomb explodes. At first there doesn’t seem to be extensive damage, but then a persistent bruise on Celia’s leg turns out to be the first signs of a deadly zombie plague. Who set the bomb and why? The dark and intricate magic is like no spell Celia or John Creede has seen before. Then Celia’s alcoholic mother breaks out of her siren prison, and Creede disappears. As the virus spreads, Celia and her allies must uncover who is behind this nightmare in order to stop it. (TOR, Mar., 384 pp., $14.99)
