Daniels – 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 cakeSo why is she so nervous It proba Kit Colbana half breed assassin thief jack of all trades hWith the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier moneyOr maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case or. This is a uickie Review For the full review please visit The RomanceaholicWhen I first sat down to write this review I realized that I had a bit of a problem — how on earth was I going to rein in my inner Fangirl long enough to put together coherent sentences on just how fantastic this book was I’m still not certain that I am able to do it justice but suffice it to say I loved this book It easily ranks right up there with my adoration of Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series and yes even Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series and I will tell you that is no small feat at allWith not only intriguing characters but fascinating world building new twists on old mythologies as well as original creations and an exciting mystery behind the disappearance of many non human children the story never felt rushed even though it was full of action and multi faceted characters that made it easy to become fully immersed in Kit’s worldRecommended for fans of strong heroines with a horrifying past of alpha heroes with hidden depths and of fresh new twists on old mythologiesAn impossibly solid 55 StarsAs of 710 I've read this three times If anyone wonders why I'm behind on my 2012 reading challenge this is why lol and yes it's still 55 A Slightly Off Topic Rant 10192012I've noticed uite a few reviews where people were upset that Kit wasn't a Kate Daniels clone Kit isn't Kate despite the similarity in names and their penchants for sharp pointy things Kit is well Kit She has a completely different past a different skill set different magic and lives in a completely different world with its own set of rules I can't speak for anyone else but when I first read this and went around the internet gushing to anyone who would listen about how this was the best Urban Fantasy I'd read since the Kate Daniels series it wasn't because I thought that Kit and Kate were so similar it's because I recognized in Kit the same vulnerability stubbornness and potential that I saw in Kate in her first book If you look back at Kate in her first novel she was a lot younger and lacked a lot of the experience and maturity that has developed her character into the awesome power that she is Kit's also like that in some ways she's not superwoman she doesn't always make the right choices she occasionally acts impulsively and she's got her own personal demons to battle just like anyone else And I for one can't get enough of her So please don't go into this expecting a heroine just like Kate Daniels or you're probably going to be disappointed And please don't be put off by the reviews expressing disappointment that Kit turned out not to be Kate Instead go into this book with an open mind and I think you'll find that Kit is a character that you're going to want to follow through many books to comeand yes this is STILL a 55 for me

Read This Review More Like It On My BlogNo Just no Am I reading the same book as everyone else This was awful across the board A smattering of a very few good ideas scant worldbuilding and what is there is very unoriginal and very poor execution coupled with two unlikeable protagonists make for a very unsatisfied Jessie This is not going to be pretty I'm pretty damn disappointed with this novel as well as being supremely frustrated with it I had passed this over several times on my freuent go throughs of NetGalley PNRUF is far from my favorite genre as they tend to be predictable and all vaguely alike and I should've stuck with my initial uite wary thoughts Misled by all the 4 and 5 star reviews I'd then subseuently seen for this I thought Blade Song might be the exception to my UFPNR rule and no Absolutely not Not by a long shot The few creative things I liked about it in the beginning pages were soon abandoned to the mess that is the rest of this cliched and poorly executed book What I Liked new kind of supernatural being the aneira warrior women with magical abilities aka s new ideas on typical vampire mythology lose and of their soul as they age feed on humans for blood but also emotions they have lost as a result a POC for a love interest too bad his actual personality is as nails on a chalkboard For 250 pages What I Hated Did Not Like Everything elseOkay seriously I'll go through a few of my many many issues with this book It made me too angry to go through them all and I have many other books I'd like to read so here's the short rundownFor a novel that started so strongly Blade Song devolves fairly uickly A lot of my problems with this first in a series stem from the weak main character of Kitasa herself She's just so incredibly brainless thoughtless heedless For the ENTIRE NOVEL Also for a half assassin this is a pretty worthless fighter She's always fainting passing out or just plain needing to be rescued Where is the strong warrior character I was promised Cause she for sure never showed up past chapter two Instead I got a weak willed pushover who confuses a controlling asshole for a worthy love interest Kit is much a weak willed damsel in distress waiting for her man to come save her No Just no Especially when I was promised an active capable heroine Not coolDamon is an asshole and I hated him from start to end Though spared from his POVs thank you his actions and disalogues withto Kit show him to be a Bad Idea Alpha males are far from my favorite type of love interest and here is no exception For about 90% of the novel he's abusive or controllingor just plain rude His abrupt switch from unagreeable aggressor to lovaaah is just too uick foundation less and unbelievable You don't get to wring Kit's neck black and blue and then oh so love her a week later with all forgiven No I'm sorry I don't buy that You don't spy on her texts and control her actions and then get to be the hero over and over Bad Damon very badThis was a big miss and a huge disappointment for me; I was prepared to and really wanted to love it based on the reviews I read from trusted friends It just wasn't meant to be for me The few good ideas were easily and uickly glossed over in favor of typical and standard genre fare power games a humanish woman caught between a powerful vampire and a powerful weresomething in an humansupernaturally incorporated city and Blade Song never delivered on its promise of a fun smart deadly assassin Simplistic cliched with flat and unlikeable characters I won't be continuing this series with Night Blade the second book due out sometime in the near futureIf you're morbidly curious or wish to try out Kit's special blend of stupid and reckless for yourself the good news is that Blade Song will only set you back about 5 to read Just be warned may induce feelings of incredible frustration and severe disappointment
