This is the first book that I have read from author Christine Amsden.  While Madison's Song is a stand alone novel; it is a spin off from Amsden's Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective series  What did I think of Madison's Song by Christine Amsden?

I received a complimentary copy of this ebook for use in my review.  All opinions are my own.  While we were not compensated for this review; we may receive slight compensation from affiliate linking within our posts.


Quick Summary of Madison's Song by Christine Amsden. 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

Amsden keeps the action moving from the beginning in Madison's Song.  Readers are pulled immediately into Madison's story within the first few pages of the book--and are guided through twists and turns until the end.  While the author ties up the storyline; she leaves some pieces a little unresolved.  Readers won't be left in the dark--but, will likely want to read more of Amsden's books with these characters.

Madison's Song holds a little bit of everything for readers.  Magic, paranormal activity, romance, human struggles and even religion dot the pages of this book.  Amsden creates some very complex characters with some very complicated interactions.  This book is a little more graphic and dark than I had expected--but, it depicted the characters and the plot very well.

Would I recommend Madison's Song by Christine Amsden?  If you enjoy fantasy books with a werewolf theme--this book is worth adding to your reading list.  So many young adult, fantasy/paranormal books are written for tween/young teen readers.  I think this one is geared toward an older young adult age group.  I enjoyed the author's writing style and her character development.  I would read another story with Madison as the main character--and I have added the Cassie Scott series to my reading list as well!

About the author:

Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone. At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease, a condition that affects the retina and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally blind, but has not let this slow her down or get in the way of her dreams. (You can learn more here.) In addition to writing, Christine teaches workshops on writing at Savvy Authors. She also does some freelance editing work. Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children, Drake and Celeste.
