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.

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr

Radiant Shadows (Wicked Lovely)Hunger for nourishment. Hunger for touch. Hunger to belong.
Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers. Those same cravings also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies—including Devlin, the assassin who is brother to the faeries' High Queen. Ani and Devlin are drawn together, but as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?(Courtesy of Amazon)
Book 4 in the Wicked Lovely series

Hands Down I have to say this is the best in the series so far.  Marr has done it again and again in just 4 books.  As Marr branches out into two characters that have been slowly coming into play, one would think they might be 'bored' with the series not being about the 'main' characters.  Ani and Devlin's story is just what the book/series needed to give it the edge.  The twists Marr is throwing into the series only give you that butterfly stomach feeling you get from the roller coaster.  We see more action in this book; more tension; more suspense.  

Ani is struggling with finding her place and thus just going through the motions of doing her duty to the court.  She's special so she has to, but doesn't being special give her the niche she needs to fit it?  Or will it put her at risk?  
Devlin has been living in shadows of his sister his whole life...is it time for him to do something else?

I'm hoping Darkest Mercy is on my door step when I get home, but I'm already devastated that it is the last in the series...
