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.

This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 5)The highly anticipated continuation of Jeaniene Frost's New York Times and USA Today bestselling Night Huntress series, in which Cat and Bones face an enemy unlike any they've met before.
Danger waits on both sides of the grave. 
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance...
With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing.  A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally"--the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war. ...to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined (courtesy of Amazon)

Who can ever get enough Bones and Cat – Although I thought the story line was a little strained in this book, I love me some Bones and ESPECIALLY some Vlad or Tepesh as he can be so affectionately referred to – he’s got some big parts in this book and he has captured a little of my heart!  The humor and banter between the 3 leads kept this book moving for me.  And I am hoping for the next Night Huntress World book to be about Vlad. 
Cat definitely takes the stage in this one – emotional battle and saving the world – while I thought some of the plot was a little out there – Frost is a great writer and she still delivers!  Tragic sadness Cat has to push past while still learning to be a vampire.  Frost kept me engaged with the action.


  1. Great review!! Vlad definitely steals our hearts in this one! And he is going to have 2 books in the NHWorld series Jeaniene said. The only thing I can't remember if she was going to have another separate spinoff that had more of Vlad or if it was just 2 NHWorld books that star him. But still! Vlad is on the way!!
