In Celia Graves's world, vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street-corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells. But Celia thought she was an ordinary human, albeit one with a clairvoyant best friend and a ghostly little sister.
The vampire attack that made Celia an abomination forces her to take food in liquid form and gives a whole new meaning to the word "sunburn". She's slowly adjusting (therapy sessions and all), when she discovers that the attack awakened a hidden part of her heritage: Celia is part Siren, able to enthrall men - and enrage women.
Her best friend's murder is unsolved, the cops think Celia should be in jail or staked, and her old lover, mage Bruno DeLuca, has something important to tell her. To top it all off, Celia's been summoned to the Sirens' island.
Celia Graves has more than one enemy. Some of them want her blood. Some of them want her soul. All of them want her dead.

Definitely better than the prin, I get all my books as audiobooks just so I can listen to them
Celia, she just keeps pushing through adversity which is pretty impressive.
No, but I did manage to finish it within a couple days
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed Celia in the first book and expected her character to be developed and revelation of what her powers could be. Instead she reacting to elements and softly walking around trying not to offend people because she is a vampire.
For me the series stops here.
