Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Blood Challenge by Eileen Wilks

Blood Challenge (Lupi)Ex-cop Lily Yu and werewolf Rule Turner's engagement announcement is stirring up ugly passions in the Humans First camp. There's hate mail, followed by death threats. And when a lupus in Tennessee goes on a killing spree, Lily realizes that it's only the opening skirmish in an all-out war.(courtesy of Amazon)

The above description may be brief and lacking, but this book is anything but.  

Wilks has created such an amazing world of the Lupi.  Book 7 in the series, I still can't get enough of Lily and Rule. They are my 2nd ALL-TIME favorite couple from a book series, and I've read a lot of series.  Wilks has given us two characters and evolved them to be so memorable.  Lily had so many reservations in life when she met Rule in book 1, everything she knew and had resolved to live by has been questioned and turned upside down.  Lily has grown so much from the beginning, and watching her changes have been amazing.  Rule takes live as it is, and handles it.  He's the perfect match for Lily.  You can’t get enough of them.  Throw in the rest of the cast and you have one of my favorite teams. 

The C couple (trying not to spoil) along with Rule's family and pack have complimented the whole story.  These books are not just about the paranormal, while magic and fantasy are a large part of the books, mystery and thrills along with true crime investigation are the drivers that keep this series alive.  Wilks researches to give the books a real feel, meeting with crime scene investigations, trauma nurses, and probably weres themselves (just kidding on that last part).  This book, gives us insight to more of Rule's brother, Benedict.  We also place Lily in the pack and out of the police world for a bit.

Wilks Lupi series is action-packed, charged with mystery and true crime solving.    The base of the Lupi world she has created is imaginative and, yet, believable.  She has a talent matched only by a few.  I am on pins and needles awaiting Death Magic Book 8, due out this year also, Nov 2011.
