A client begs Celia Graves—part human, part Siren, part vampire—to help return a genie to his bottle. The attempt makes Celia a target for the currently incorporeal ifrit. If she doesn't give him her body, he'll kill everyone she loves. If she does, he'll use her physical form to free thousands of evil djinn.
Celia's not going to hand over her body, but her client tries to trick her into it—so that he can kill the ifrit while it's trapped in her flesh. That doesn't end well for the client. Celia might not get paid for the gig, but she's got to get the ifrit re-bottled before all hell breaks loose—possibly literally!
Now written solely by C. T. Adams under the Cat Adams name, All Your Wishes continues this outstanding urban fantasy series with a thrilling new adventure.

I try extremely hard not to take issue with the direction an author takes with their work. I mean, seriously, it’s their work/imagination and I am just a visitor. Having said that, All Your Wishes left me completely flabbergasted.
I was a fan of the Blood Singer series. It started out being written by co-authors, Cie Adams and Cathy Clamp, aka Cat Adams. The authors decided to end their collaboration and split the series they were writing. Cat Adams is now Cie Adams, writing alone.
Maybe that was the problem and Ms Adams decided to make All Your Wishes a transitional book. What I felt after waiting so long for the continuation of the series was Ms Adams wasn’t happy with the series and did a complete reset.
I don’t want to intentionally spoil the book for anyone but the choices Ms Adams made just floored me. I read the book, got close to the end, and sat dumbfounded. Major action has happened away from the storyline before but THIS. Admittedly, the author does go back via video playback to show the reader what happened but my gosh, gut wrenching doesn’t begin to describe what I felt. Additionally, I didn’t care for the character much anyway but the previous books were leading me to draw certain conclusions and all that got thrown out the window. I mean this is book 7 and the way it reads, the series could end there.
For me, it might end there. I will wait and see what the synopsis is on the next book, if there is a next book. The Blood Singer series was an automatic buy for me before All Your Wishes. Not anymore. I paid $9.99 for an e-book and still can’t get my head around the plot.
I will say, Ms Adams is extremely talented in putting words together and that alone was what I liked.
