Madison's Song Book Review



 
Synopsis:
Her voice is enchanting; his soul is black...

Madison Carter has been terrified of Scott Lee since the night he saved her from an evil sorcerer – then melted into a man-eating monster before her eyes. The werewolf is a slave to the moon, but Madison's nightmares are not.

Despite her fears, when Madison's brother, Clinton, is bitten by a werewolf, she knows there is only one man who can help. A man who frightens her all the more because even in her nightmares, he also thrills her.

Together for the first time since that terrible night, Scott and Madison drive to Clinton's home only to discover that he's vanished! Frantic now, Madison must overcome her fears and uncover hidden strengths if she hopes to save him. And she's not the only one fighting inner demons. Scott's are literal, and they have him convinced that he will never deserve the woman he loves.
*Stand-alone companion to the Cassie Scot series
My Thoughts:
 
I have been reading Christine Amden's books for awhile now on Cassie Scot, Normal Detective and I just fell in love with those characters! Once Christine finished with Cassie and Evan's story, she moved on to one of the other characters that was in her first series, Madison. So, you will see some reference to those characters as well, but this book is solely focusing on Madison and Scot for now.
 
These are paranormal stories but also a love story between these couples. Madison is what they call a songbird or in some other books that I have read, a siren. She can sing and make you do just about anything. Scot is a werewolf and Madison is actually very afraid of him half of the time and the other half, she wants to believe that things will turn out just fine.
 
Of course, it helps that her half brother, Evan, is a powerful witch and he has lots of friends and allies that have powers also, so if she would just learn to turn to him instead of going off on her own, it sure would make her life a lot easier! But, she's stubborn and wants to think she can handle anything and sometimes she can and other times, she really needs to call in the reinforcements!
 
If you read any of the Cassie Scot books, you are going to love this one just as much!
 
Happy Reading!

What makes paranormal romance great is the fictional theme! I loved super powers and fictional paranormal monsters like werewolves, vampires and shapeshifters since I was a little girl and I still love it

I have had to overcome a great fear. Almost 10 years ago I was held hostage in my apartment by a former boyfriend for almost 9 hours. True story. It could be a book. This is one of the reasons that I love books about people facing fears or obstacles in their lives and overcoming them. :)

I haven't been forced yet and I hope I never will. A great paranormal romance has to have just about the right amounce of humanity.
